NOW Magazine has described him as having “charisma and raw talent to burn.” He was the winner of the 2016 Second City Emerging Voices Scholarship as well as Sirius XM’s Top Comic $25,000 grand prize. Chris was also the runner-up at the prestigious Homegrown competition at Just For Laughs.
The MC for the 2018 Gala will be none other than Niagara's own Marc Sinodinos. His material is well crafted and absurd, and his style is a perfect blend of silliness, wit, and edge. Beside his many accolades in comedy he has also won a Nobel Peace Prize for fighting for your right to party.
