Chris Linn is a comedy entertainer who is literally amazing! On stage, he seamlessly blends his signature clean comedy with visual illusions, special effects and incredible stunts to create performances that are equal parts “LOL” and “OMG”. This exciting fusion of comedy and trickery has earned this Michigan native the title of “America’s Magical Funnyman”.
Developing a passion for making people laugh and a knack for sleight-to-hand at an early age, Chris was entertaining audiences across the country while he was still in High School. 25 years later, Chris has mastered the art of fooling people at a level that some would describe as “presidential”.
Chris has brought his high energy show to all 50 states, and 17 different countries. Although they may not quickly recognize his name, many people do find Chris Linn’s playful grin and memorable visual comedy routines immediately familiar from his numerous TV appearances on FOX, ABC, PBS, CW and the Travel Channel.
The contagious fun of Chris’ performances makes him a popular act at top tourist venues, including Branson, Las Vegas, Amsterdam, Walt Disney World, Busch Gardens, and on cruise ships around the world. When he is not entertaining the public, he is providing entertainment for corporate clients, with a list that includes Chevrolet, DuPont, Home Depot, Hilton Hotels, and Pfizer.
Chris officially broke two Guinness World Records using his sleight-of-hand abilities. During his long-running show at Cedar Point Amusement Park, Chris “scaled” an unbelievable 114 playing cards across the park’s historic ballroom in just 60 seconds – using only his thumb to propel the cards. More recently, he succeeded in twisting a balloon poodle in 5.94 seconds – behind his back.
Chris is the first American act to be voted the “Audience Favorite” in Peoples’ Choice Voting at the original Hong Kong Comedy Festival. His is also the recipient of the prestigious Spotlight Award for “Entertainer of the Year – Solo Act” from Event Solutions.
His newest (and favorite) gig is his role as “Daddy” – for an audience of one.
