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.

LA Weekly picks tonight’s Cinespace show as the “Go” Friday night event of the week

Be sure to grab the new LA Weekly and check for the nice little write up they did for the show I’m playing this Friday at Cinespace. Or if you don’t feel like walking to the corner coffeeshop to grab one, just read it here.


This is the show I’ve been preparing for…

I’m finally putting it all together in a 30 minute set of Music, Stand Up, and Short Films at Cinespace – Friday August 21. Cinespace is a perfect spot to lay it all out multi-media style. A full size movie screen sits right behind the stage allowing me to try a non-stop blitz of jokes, songs, and movies.
What’s coming next? Is it a song? I don’t know. Is it a film? Maybe…
I’ve always been asked, ‘Chris, what do you want to be? A musician, a comic, a filmmaker? Pick one.” Blah! I’ll do them all together.
Come see if my head explodes….
