    Christopher Titus has been one of my favorite comedians since I was a teenager. I first saw him when his comedy series "Titus" premiered on FOX. I was shocked when I learned that a lot of the things that were on the show were based on real events in his life. His father was an alcoholic womanizer, his mom had mental problems, etc. Titus is also known for his stand-up comedy show "Norman Rockwell is Bleeding." I saw this show on Comedy Central and enjoyed it. Most of the things from his sit com show "Titus" is based on his stand-up comedy. In other roles, Titus seems to play nice, tough in your face roles. Besides his comedy, Christopher Titus customizes hot rods.moreless
