‘Underground comedian’ is a phrase Louie Christie coined to describe being a new comedian who is alternative, not mainstream, and not successful.
Louie Christie does not perform regularly, so catch him if you can on the underground comedy scene:
- in London, United Kingdom, and other places
- in small basements below and above pubs
“Always ready to ask questions about why/how we do things.”
– Pete Camp
Louie Christie mostly performs improv comedy. But whenever he mentions it, most people want to talk about stand-up comedy.
Louie Christie does stand-up comedy occasionally. Usually leaving just enough time between gigs to forget any jokes or stage craft.
His stand-up comedy style is alternative, observational, irreverent, and a bit dry.⬇️*
Alternative: Following the British 1980's tradition, not mainstream
Observational: Not one-liners
Irreverent: Not reverent
Dry: Not sure - Bill Murray?
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”.
Louie Christie has never won a comedy competition. Let alone entered one1.
