Have you ever taken a bite of a cupcake only to find it's full of razor blades? That's Christi! Armed with a ridiculous love for pop culture and obsession with "human connection"; Christi's comedy takes you on a fervent journey into the horny life of the girl behind the cartoonish voice! Half parts cuteness and savagery, Christi's comedy explores all the breakUPS, breakDOWNS and breakTHROUGHS that have made her comedy's angel bitch!

She co-hosts Battle of the Divas at Union Hall with Matteo Lane and has a one woman show "It's Christi, B*tch!" at Ars Nova.
