Christopher was born in NYC. His first gig on a tv show was never aired. It was the last episode of Jenny, starring Jenny McCarthy. He went on to guest star in The Hughleys and According to Jim. He next starred on the Fighting Fitzgeralds and did voice-over work on Gary and Mike. None of these shows lasted very long.
While shooting an improvised commercial in which he played guitar and sang, he was discovered by Christopher Guest. Guest gave him a role in A Mighty Wind as one of the New Main Street Singers.
Later, Chris was the only cast member to survive a change in producers on the NBC version of Coupling. Unfortunately, this show didn't last, either. It was dropped during November sweeps.
Christopher is now shooting a pilot for his new sitcom, Foster Hall, which he is writing and producing with Conan O'Brien.
Christopher plays guitar and piano. He can also juggle and balance chairs!
