About Christopher Albert

Armed with an acquired wit and intelligence that was born from the streets of NYC, Christopher Albert, also once an inhabitant of Los Angeles, is set to emerge as one of the funniest, charming, yet eccentric writers and humorists of our day.

Though Christopher has produced content for Fortune 500 companies and small businesses alike, his true talents are rooted in entertainment and comedy. Christopher has had the unique opportunity to study the craft of humor with the best: instructors from the famed Comedy Store and Second City Hollywood, as well as invaluable insight from veteran comedy writers. 

Christopher’s brutally honest approach to humor is evident in his litany of fearless content. His works include the writing and production of Junk and Jam, absurdly edgy content, satirically animated graphics, and humorous programming – including the Junk and Jam Hour talk-radio broadcast, and Junk and Jam Live cablecast program.

As a performer, Christopher has been afforded opportunities to share his talents on many stages including the historic Apollo Theater, with appearances on the Rosie O’ Donnell Show, Billboard Music Awards and features on MTV and PBS. He has also performed on and produced an array of successful live comedy showcases, featured alongside many top comedians.

His collection of humorous writings include his novel, The Kettle Black: The Chronicles of Mia and Rocco, and autobiographical short stories for the series, A Crack Baby’s Bible.

Writer, producer, performer, humorist and host Christopher Albert is humbled by his life’s experiences, and believes that humor is much more than just a singular tool used to escape the harsh realities of our world, it actually enriches it.

Lisa Lampanelli fondly referred to him as an ‘anal astronaut’

Ariana Grande’s Dad praised him as a ‘creative professional’

…and Mariah Carey once gave him a disingenuous hug.
