Comedy Dynamics announced that it will release Chris Porter’s new stand up comedy special titled Chris Porter: A Man From Kansas. The special is being released as a Comedy Dynamics Original on April 16, 2019 on the Comedy Dynamics Network which means a simultaneous release across multiple platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Google, Playstation, and XBOX, along with many major telco & satellite providers, including Comcast, DirecTV, Spectrum, AT&T, Dish, and Cox Communications.
Chris Porter is a simple man in a complicated world where dudes send pictures of their genitalia to women and burgers have a backstory. In this special, he tries to make sense of it all.
Born and raised in Kansas City, Chris brings a true stand-up experience to his live shows with no gimmicks, just laughs drawn from his own experience and observations. “When a lot of people think of Kansas, they think of the Wizard Of Oz. This comedy special will not change that. I mean, how am I supposed to complete with psychedelic imagery and flying monkeys?! But this is definitely funnier than Wizard of Oz.” said Chris Porter.
Porter is best known for his 3rd place appearance on season 4 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing and his one-hour special ‘Ugly & Angry’ that was one of Netflix’s top rated specials for three years. He also has a Comedy Central Presents special, two comedy albums ‘Lost & Alone’ and ‘Screaming From the Cosmos’, and he’s appeared on Tommy Chong’s Comedy @ 420 on Showtime, the Arsenio Hall show, and Comedy.TV.
The special was directed and produced by Brian Volk-Weiss and co-produced by Cisco Henson.
