comedy is bliss.

Chris Bliss explores the inherent challenge of communication, and how comedy opens paths to new perspectives during a TEDx speech.Chris Bliss is a national headline comedian, with credits including the Tonight Show and the Late Show with David Letterman, as well as an internationally renowned variety artist, opening for superstars from Eric Clapton to Michael Jackson.


"Even as a child I remember thinking that what I really wanted most in life was to be able to understand everything, and communicate it to everyone else."


"Whenever I went to share some great truth with a soon to be a grateful recipient it had the opposite effect. Interestingly when your opening line of communication is 'Hey listen up because I'm about to drop some serious knowledge on you.' it's amazing how quickly you'll discover both ice and firing squad."


"And that's when I discovered comedy. "

my truth. 

Comedy is gold, humor glitters, incisive satire explains our world. Nothing we didn't already know, but it never hurts to reaffirm. And stay friendly. 

"Take a little time each day and practice thinking funny because you might just find the question that you've been looking for."
