Penguins Comedy Club located inside The Vault presents Christine "Chris" Stedman.
August 9 and 10.
Show times 7:30 PM

Christine can best be described as one funny mother!   She has a husband, a twenty-something son who lives at home, a divorced daughter and three grand-kids. This  gives her a full portfolio of material to draw from.  A lot of people ask Chris why she began a career in comedy so late in life. Well, it’s not a coincidence that she started immediately after her daughter began having babies! Chris does not like to baby-sit! Sure, traveling around the country telling jokes to drunks in smoky nightclubs was not the most practical way to get out of baby-sitting, but she decided it was definitely worth a try. (It was either that, or go to truck-driving school and she hates the way she looks in flannel shirts! ) So far, this desperate attempt to distance herself from family obligations has worked out quite nicely. She’s come a long way from her early years in comedy.
 
She currently headlines in some of the top clubs in the country and has become a favorite at “The Comedy Stop” in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. In 2006, she was chosen to compete in Nick at Nite’s Search for the Funniest Mom in America. She appeared in six episodes and made it all the way to the finale where it came down to only 5 finalists. Ok, she didn’t win----but just ask anyone who has seen her perform and they will tell you that she is definitely one funny mother!
