The Stuntmen
Chris Terry reads so...many... comics, plays Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering. He's probably gonna cosplay SantaCop in December because C2E2 is in December, so he kind of has to (he will fight the evil HO-HO-HOCP). Chris currently hates Jim Butcher for what he wrote in "Battle Ground". Oh right, he is a also a writer/performer for the Stuntmen (the sketch "Side Quest Hero" is a 'true' story)

Chris has performed in festivals including the Del Close Marathon (NYC), Sketchfest, Chicago Improv Fest, Chicago Nerd Comedy Fest and Laughingstock. He occasionally guest performs with Improduction's "The Grid" (Northwest Indiana short-form improv). Chris was a member of musical improv/sketch group Clown Car to Sicily for six years, where he got to write, perform, direct, prop master, design show posters and even produce a video. He even pitched and co-created the group's first sketch show with a storyline called "Nerds of Future Past".
