CHRIS FAIRBANKS is the co-host of ALMOST GENIUS on truTV.

Originally from Montana, Chris headlines comedy venues nationally. His fast paced, quirky and constantly improvised act has been showcased on Comedy Central, Conan, Last Comic Standing, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Vh1 and TruTV. Chris will also be seen the 2016 film “Still Punching the Clown', recently appeared on @midnight w/ Chris Hardwick, and performing on Seeso (NBC’s new comedy streaming platform) and opening for Daniel Tosh.
Chris’ first comedy album, “Fairbanks!” was named one of Amazon and Amazon MP3’s Top Ten of
2010. He also hosts the popular podcast, “Do You Need a Ride”, with Karen Kilgariff on All Things Comedy. They shuttle their guests to or from the airport, somewhat dangerously, in a '08 Honda Accord mobile sound studio.

Chris is also self-employed as a freelance artist, illustrating
for magazines, skateboards, and educational textbooks.

He enjoys
skateboarding and golf, but requires a hip surgery. It's the newest coolest thing, yeah, you probably haven't heard of it.
