Chris Donahue
Chris Donahue is a standup comedian and filmmaker living in Brooklyn, NY. He produced and hosted the long running Thursday night show at the historic 2A Bar. Did you know The Strokes used to hang out there?

When Chris isn’t at his own shows, staring into the audience, looking for Julian and/or Albert of The Strokes, he’s running around the city performing on shows at Union Hall, The Creek and the Cave, UCB, and at Bobby Tisdale’s Wards of Merkin.

Seriously, if you know The Strokes, tell them about him.
