Comedian and public speaker


Christian Finnegan is perhaps best known as one of the original panelists on VH1’s Best Week Ever and as Chad, the only white roommate in Chappelle’s Show’s infamous Mad Real World sketch. He played Martin on the popular syndicated sitcom Are We There Yet?, and politics junkies will recognize Christian from his many appearances on Countdown with Keith Olbermann.

Most recently, Christian was the creator and co-host of A&E’s Black & White, which examined current events and social trends through the lens of race.

Over the years, Christian has been a fixture on Comedy Central, having starred in his own one-hour stand-up special Au Contraire, as well as Comedy Central Presents, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn and countless network interstitials. He’s also appeared on Conan, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Good Afternoon America, and The Today Show.

Christian’s three comedy albums and specials (Two For Flinching, Au Contraire! and The Fun Part) are available on iTunes and Amazon and are in regular rotation on SiriusXM and all major streaming services.

When not on tour, Christian Finnegan lives in Astoria, Queens with his wife, author Kambri Crews and their faithful pooches, Griswold and Chief Billy Bowlegs.
