SET LIST: Chris Fairbanks
By Perry Michael Simon on May 9, 2014
Chris Fairbanks has been on Conan, Comedy Central, and Jimmy Kimmel Live, along with countless other standup gigs. He’s an artist. And he’s a skateboarder of note. All of which would lead you to think that he’s fearless, but he says he’s nervous and sweaty before taking on Paul Provenza and Troy Conrad’s Set List on the Nerdist Channel, and maybe that’s for good reason: Among the topics he has to handle with spontaneous comedy are what I’d call the world’s worst jukebox, a really bad job, freeing “Jerry,” and long-running hostilities taken to their extremes, which almost sends Chris right over the edge. Seriously, this list is one of the toughest yet.
Nobody said this would be easy. Quite the contrary, actually.
