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.

Performers for the March 4th Strings of Comedy night at the M Bar - Chris Valenti, Kristin Key, J Chris Newberg, Phoebe Carter, Scott Vinci
This month’s Strings of Comedy show includes more great musical comics:

Kristin Key seems like any other sweet, sexy, well-behaved preacher’s daughter… until she opens her mouth. Her fearless style of comedy has earned her the title “The Preacher’s Kid Gone Wild.” Kristin Key, one of the youngest headliners working the road today, began at the age of 19. After being seen by millions of comedy fans on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, she has continued to amuse her fans through radio, television, and live performances all over the country.

J. Chris Newberg‘s refreshingly smart and edgy humor, delivered with a streetwise sense of philosophic cool, has propelled the guitarist/songwriter-cum-comedian to the forefront of the National comedy scene. Chris has been seen on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Comic Standing 4, The Sports List on Fox Sports, Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and The World Stands Up.

Phoebe Carter‘s music can be heard on radio stations in major cities throughout the country, her songs Can’t Get Home For Christmas, Phunny Valentine, SUV, and the latest, Spooky Sexy are hysterical blends of sweet voice, amazing sounds and comical lyrics. Phoebe is always in high demand around holiday time. She’s performed on radio stations and in comedy clubs nationwide.

Scott Vinci has performed in all the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles. He plays hilarious songs about dating and aging. He’s also got the best Star Wars tune you’ll ever hear…

And me!
