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.

Armed With Laughter Afghanistan Tour Reunion Show & Anna Runs America benefit for Veterans

Anna & Armed

The time has come! We’re having a big Afghanistan-tour reunion show with the Armed With Laughter comics – Debbie Praver, Lang Parker, Suzy Nece and Chris Valenti.

Come join us this Thursday, March 6 at the MBar in Hollywood, 1253 Vine St – doors at 7, show at 8. It’s a benefit for The Veterans Project and U.S. Tour of Duty Check out the Facebook Invite

But just like on that tour, we’re not doing anything small. We’re joining forces with a few veterans groups and their allies – including U.S. Tour of Duty, Team RWB, The Veterans Project and Charity Miles – to support the RUN ACROSS THE COUNTRY FOR VETS by the amazing Ms. Anna Judd . Anna starts in Venice on March 22 and finishes in Washington Square Park, NYC, on June 26. Personally, I prefer Virgin Airlines, but I understand that sometimes the booking website can be a hassle. But Anna is dedicating the three months of her life to support veterans. Anna is a very special lady. We’re proud to be supporting her. Come to this show and support her as well! And meet her!

Rumor – A big name celebrity actor who owns a grammy has asked if he can perform a song! He’s known for supporting this cause…

This show will also feature a musical performance by the band Vayden, who will also be performing at stops along Anna’s run.

Come support and enjoy this great show. Debbie, Suzy, Lang and I have been waiting for the right moment to do an Afghanistan tour reunion show. This is definitely it. We performed for the active troops over there. Now we’re performing for the vets. We have some movies and photos we can’t wait to show, as we relive and tell some amazing stories from that trip. And stand up too!

A ten dollar donation will be accepted at the door – or you can also purchase online
There is also a $10 food minimum. So come hungry!!

Whether or not you can attend the show, please consider donating online to The Veterans Project.

Join us Thursday!!
