Louie Christie is an Underground Comedian

Louie Christie underground comedian

‘Underground comedian’ is a term Louie Christie coined to describe being: alternative, not mainstream, and not successful.

Louie Christie does not perform regularly, so catch him if you can on the underground comedy scene in basements below/above pubs in London, United Kingdom, and other places.

Louie Christie mostly performs improv comedy. But whenever he mentions it, most people want to talk about stand-up comedy – which he also does very occasionally, usually leaving just enough time between gigs to forget any jokes and/or stage craft.

His stand-up comedy style is alternative, observational, irreverent and a bit dry. Louie Christie basically stands on stage and tells people how he sees the world. A world which is equal parts funny, exciting, mundane and surreal.

(Funny odd, and, funny “ha ha”.)

Alternative: Following the British 1980's tradition, not mainstream
Observational: Not one-liners
Irreverent: Not reverent
Dry: Not sure - Bill Murray?

Louie Christie has never won a comedy competition. Let alone entered one1.

[1] Except once by accident in Margate. He didn’t win.*
* It was won by his arch nemesis, and ex-partner, ‘musical’ comedian Boris Witzenfeld.

** (But as someone who doesn’t perform regularly, technically, he still could enter a new act stand-up comedy competition.)
