Christopher Titus: Thank God I Got My Butt Handed To Me

Posted: Updated:

"I will do anything to whore a gig!" That's Christopher Titus explaining why he was on both Studio 11 and Good Day LA in a 24 hour period. The comedian is taking his "Angry Pursuit of Happiness" tour to the Irvine Improv this weekend. Steve made a crack on Titus getting older...which is something you probably shouldn't do to a professional comedian.

"No one's getting rid of you. Talk about me aging!? You were the first guy to survive from the Donner Party...you made it!" Titus says his mouth got his show "Titus" canceled by the network. "I smarted off to the network president...so it worked out."

His new show still has an edge but is less depressing than his others. "I realized that all my other shows were like my horrible childhood, and then it was the world coming apart from 9/11 having kids, and then it was "Love is Evol" my divorce, and then "Neverlution" was the country was messed up..I got married again, I met this amazing woman...it just feels like a joke, like at any moment it's going to go horribly wrong so I had to kind of face that it's not gonna go horribly wrong."

Titus will be performing Friday through Sunday at the Irvine Improv.

Fun Facts About Christopher Titus: (Source: Wikipedia)

1) He is an American comedian and actor. He grew up in Newark, California. Titus came to national attention with the eponymous FOX show Titus, of which he was the star, executive producer and co-creator. Time called the show "brutal, hilarious and audacious", while Newsday called him "TV's most original comic voice since Seinfeld". He is also a stand-up comedian whose act revolves around his dysfunctional family and shocking life experiences.

2) Christopher Titus had his own sitcom, Titus, which aired on the FOX Network from 2000 to 2002. It was an adaptation of his stories from Norman Rockwell is Bleeding and, despite the censors bombarding Titus with requests to tone down the darkly humorous subject matter, was met with great critical acclaim. The show ended up getting canceled in 2002 after executives told Titus that they wanted the new season to feature Erin and Titus breaking up. Titus, who bases all of his comedy on reality, objected since he and Erin were together at the time and ended up fired.

3) Titus received a Writer's Guild nomination for his work on Titus, and the show received an Emmy nomination. In 2004, "Norman Rockwell is Bleeding" became his first televised special, premiering on Showtime.

Titus and his ‘Angry Pursuit Of Happiness' will be at the Irvine Improv...performing Friday through Sunday.
