The Improv Comedy Showcase and Restaurant presents Chris Fonseca.
The spring of 2004 marked the airing of Chris' 47th national TV appearance. SITV cable network, featured Fonseca on their nightly comedy showcase, Latino Laugh Festival The Show.
Among his other prominent TV appearances, he has shined on CBS' The Late Show with David Letterman, HBO's Loco Slam, PBS' Look Who's Laughing and ABC's 9th Annual American Comedy Awards. Also, on the small screen Fonseca took a jab at acting in an episode of the mega hit show, Baywatch.
He has released 2 CDs, 1997's Not Tonight, I Have Cerebral Palsy… and 2001's Get in the Van. A follow-up is in the works.
The discs have gained airplay coast to coast, on radio programs such as The Howard Stern Show and Los Angeles' KLOS' Five O'clock Funnies. Clips from both albums are frequently played on XM Satellite Radio. His often started autobiography, Daddy Where Do Jokes Come From? is scheduled to be completed by summer's end. The book of essays is a verbal history of his life, dedicated to the most important people in his life, his 5 kids.
Fonseca also has recently started a series of stand-up concerts, titled, Fonseca and Friends. The shows feature a mix of comics who he has befriended, both veteran and unknowns in a celebration of the best stand-up has to offer. Many may agree the tag "Legend" is befitting. Fonseca answers, "Hey, I'm just getting started."
