Chris Bickford has had a roller-coaster of a life. His mother died when he was three and at the age of thirteen he was living in bus stations, laundry rooms, and with relatives. After finding a newspaper which had an open casting call for the show You Can't Do That On Television he decided to try his luck. Incredibly he won a part and became the new host. The spotlight was short lived as the show ended in 1990. Chris finished school, and went on to earn a writing and teaching degree. Unfortunately Chris would discover that he had an undiagnosed case of bipolar disorder and was committed to a psychiatric institute. Since being released in 2006 Chris has continued his pursuit of acting and has landed some lead roles in local theatrical productions.
