About Chris Maddock
City Pages recently said about Chris Maddock: "No one can deny that Maddock is a fast-rising star on the local standup scene and a man poised to possibly be a breakout star in the not-so-distant future."<br>Chris Maddock comes from the land of sun kissed beer guts, beautiful Stillwater, MN. Chris' succinct observations, comedic integrity and gut-busting moustache appreciation has taken him from the grand mining towns of the Iron range to the back alley hovels of New York City and back again. He won the 2008 Laughing Liberally contest, earning him the opportunity to open for Jim David in front of a sold-out crowd at the Ordway Theatre in St. Paul. Chris' comedy has made him a Twin Cities comic to watch.<br>He recently recorded his first comedy album, with Stand Up! Records (Grammy winning studio best known for producing comedy heavyweights such as Lewis Black, Doug Stanhope and Patton Oswalt).
