Comedian. Conspirator. Cultural Barnacle.
Christian Finnegan is a stand up comedian. He appears frequently on the television and also writes things, both for money and for kicks.
Christian can currently be seen on the TBS sitcom Are We There Yet? but is perhaps best known as one of the original cast members of VH1’s Best Week Ever, where he offered keen insight into the workings of popular culture and the ubiquity of celebrity genitalia. Chappelle’s Show fans will recognize him as "Chad," the only white roommate in the infamous Mad Real World sketch. And pinko Communists know Christian from his regular appearances on Countdown with Keith Olbermann.
He is a fixture (some might say "barnacle") on Comedy Central, having starred in countless network interstitials, the shows Premium Blend and Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn and in his own special, Comedy Central Presents: Christian Finnegan. Christian was also the host of TV Land’s Game Time and has appeared on Conan, The Today Show and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
Christian’s first CD, Two for Flinching, was released by Comedy Central Records in 2006 and his super-duper DVD extravaganza, Au Contraire! was released by Warner Bros. Records in 2009.
