Christi Chiello

Have you ever taken a bite of a cupcake only to find it's full of razor blades? That's Christi! Armed with a ridiculous love for pop culture and obsession with "human connection"; Christi's comedy takes you on a fervent journey into the horny life of the girl behind the cartoonish voice! Half parts cuteness and savagery, Christi's comedy explores all the breakUPS, breakDOWNS and breakTHROUGHS that have made her comedy's angel bitch! Christi made her Comedy Central debut on Jeff Ross's Roast Battle, opposite legend Jimmy Carr and was just named a 'New Face of Comedy' at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. She co-hosts Battle of the Divas at Union Hall with Matteo Lane and has a one woman show "It's Christi, B*tch!" at Ars Nova.

His absolute ease should already be impressing you by now. His act is an energetic (bordering on frenetic) and intelligent (bordering on genius) romp through his own life experiences. Family! Friends! Sex! Religion! Sex with religious friends! It’s all there, and Usama slings jokes on these topics and more with rapid-fire charisma and hilarity.
