Description:
UnCabaret is thrilled to present rising star and recent addition to the UnCabaret family, singer/comedian/violinist Chris Woods (Conan O'Brien, The Tonight Showwith Jay Leno,  American Idol, The Voice - recorded with artists such a Will.I.Am and Justin Timbalake). And in this case when we say One Night Only, we mean it literally. Every one of his energy raising, electrifying, inspiring performances is a unique night of musical comedy. Chris is a virtuoso violinist, and an exceptional singer whose love for creative invention is matched only by his persistent goal to help you laugh your way to liberation!
 
If you haven't seen Chris you are in for a special treat, and if you HAVE seen him you're also in for a treat because no two shows are the same! Pure, unadulterated joy is his specialty, but beware: once he gets going, ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN!
 
Chris promises, “This will be a night you will truly remember!” He will be bringing along some of his own handpicked special guests including his loved ones! So bring your loved ones and come celebrate this mysterious experience we call life with a Triple Threat, or as he thinks of it, a Triple Treat, of comedy, music and soul. 

 
Chris Woods!

UnCabaret was recently named one of the Best Comedy Shows in LA by Los Angeles Magazine. Groundbreaking and star making since 1988, UnCabaret is known for its unleashed story telling style and one of a kind nights filled with exceptional talent.

First and Hope is an intimate, elegant room where magic can happen. Dinners are available in the restaurant before the show, light food and drinks at cabaret tables during.
 
UnCabaret is a hotbed of personal comedic storytelling, fostering the careers of iconoclastic comedy stars like Kathy Griffin, Julia Sweeney, Margaret Cho, Greg Behrendt, Laura Kightlinger, Mike McDonald, Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, Janeane Garofalo, Andy Kindler, Jeff Garlin, Andy Dick, Dana Gould, Patton Oswalt, Scott Thompson and Taylor Negron. UnCabaret is where award winning comedy writers like Judd Apatow, John Riggi, Michael Patrick King and Larry Charles have come to connect directly with audiences.  Where luminaries like Jon Stewart, Sarah Silverman, Roseanne Barr, Sandra Bernhard, Carrie Fisher and Bill Maher have popped in to try their hand at this comedy freestyling.
 
After a bit of a breather, UnCabaret returns! And is celebrating it's second Annversary of Sundays at First and Hope.

His songs have been recorded by artists such as Chaka Khan, Thelma Houston, Sister Sledge and Martika.
