Chris Valenti

If you’ve ever been frustrated by a relationship and you have a twisted, but healthy sense of humor, then Chris Valenti is the artist for you. Chris takes his romantic failures and frustrations personally and pours them out to you straight from his wry, twisted heart. Valenti\'s songs of struggles, blunders, and missed opportunities radiate the painfully funny universal suffering we all endure. His show is part music, part comedy, part therapy, and part romance – as well as action, adventure, mystery and sometimes horror. A philosopher of love – usually, the kind of love that did not exactly make it to that \'happily ever after\' place, Chris writes and performs songs that touch upon the common truths of the humorous lives of single people.Songs like Passive Aggressive, about the cute little problems that get blown out of proportion in every sweet, loving relationship, and The Ghost of Your Ex, about dates who can\'t stop talking about their ex-boyfriends, strike close to home for those who can not reel in the full attention of their present partner. Don\'t Pass Out is a plea and warning to men and women everywhere to curb excessive drinking, especially on first dates. The upcoming album includes It\'s Hard to Find Someone Good Enough For Me, which nails the single person\'s core issue head on – and was featured on The Dr. Phil Show – and Everyone Can Be Replaced, a positive look at the end of relationships. Most shows end with Chris\'s new approach to women, Booty Call. A hopeful romantic with a wry sense of humor, Chris has the knack for using self-deprecation and vulnerability to write songs about the hazards and frustrations of love and attempted relationships. He’s become the cheerful motivator for the unlucky in love, because the best cure for a broken heart is laughing at someone else\'s.

Los Angeles, CA – 08/24/08 – Molly Malone’s – The Strings Of Comedy


Strings Of Comedy at Molly Malone’s Sunday

We’re claiming a regular home at Molly Malone’s.

This version of the Strings of Comedy would have to be put in the grammy category of “Duos or Groups”. No solo acts. Just a peacenik / hippy fem duo that hate each other, a couple of non-married guys who don’t understand women, and an overzealous Jesus loving/fearing Church choir.

Molly Malone’s can be found at 575 S. Fairfax Ave, LA 90036. We start at 7 and end before 9, this Sunday, Aug 24th.

Vomit – Comprised of Skye and Moone, identical twins separated at age 11 when their parents got divorced. They were reunited when Skye got arrested and Moone bailed her out. Vomit was born.

Go People Go! – Sketch Armstrong (Comedy Central Stage, Aspen and Montreal Comedy Festivals) presents Christian Folk Sensation, Go People Go!. These upbeat Christian Soldiers are “putting the FUN back in Christian Fundamentalism”. If you love Jesus as much as you hate unwed mothers, prostitutes and the poor, you’ll love Go People Go!

The Dysfunctional Romantics – Musical comedians Phil Johnson of Roadside Attraction & Chris Valenti of The Emotional Wrecks have joined forces. If your crowd enjoys good music, stand up comedy, and understands the painful humor of a frustrating relationship, this is the show for them. Chris and Phil turn the suffering into laughter as they lampoon messed up romantic situations across the spectrum.

If you love great music and enjoy a good laugh, join us.
Bring a healthy sense of humor and an impeccable taste in tunes.
