Christopher Titus: Born With a Defect

Friday, April 8

by

For comedian/filmmaker/husband/father Christopher Titus, reading about another mass shooting, another prescription drug on the market or another religious zealot trying to ban marriage are signs of "human de-evolution," which makes him "want to go study with the Shaolin monks." Fortunately, the only place he's going is on the road with his new show, Born With a Defect (he plans to record his upcoming stop in Eugene, Ore., for a new DVD, and he's still working on his full-length film, Special Unit: The Movie). The Friday, April 8 show at the Knitting Factory is for 18 and older only, and opening for Titus is his comedian wife, Rachel Bradley.

On his website, Titus explains how seeing live comedy is the cure-all and the new show is "therapy if you're a parent; birth control if you're childless."
