Biography

Southern fried humor, with a pinch of sass and a hilarious dose of attitude all work together to describe the comic entity known as Christy Eidson.  Christy creates colorfully visual stories from her distinct southern point-of-view.  She is a strong female comedian, but doesn’t like to be labeled just a “female comic”, because she can hold her own with the boys.  Some describe her as “Roseanne Barr meets Jack Black”.  On stage, she comes across extremely likeable and confident, yet unpredictable.  Christy is highly energetic, charismatic, has strong comedic timing, and commands the stage.  With this combination, she quickly grabs the audience’s attention and doesn’t let it go until she’s walking off the stage. 

Christy is the unique comedian who can perform in front of just about ANY audience.  She performs at comedy clubs, biker rallies, gay pride festivals, and various benefit shows.  “Many audience members vowed that they hadn’t laughed so long or so hard in years.”  Very few comics can pull off performing risqué shows back-to-back with clean shows, but Christy executes it effortlessly and professionally.   

Christy can currently be seen in a national TV commercial for Blu E-cigarettes.  Last year, she filmed a television pilot with Billy Ray Cyrus called “Still the King”, which will be airing on CMT in 2016.  She is also currently performing in and producing the very successful comedy series, "Girl on Girl Comedy", which she is currently taking on a regional tour.  In 2008, she appeared on Last Comic Standing and Nashville Star on NBC.  She has performed in such places as the Improv, the Comedy Store, and the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles, the Ice House in Pasadena, HA's in New York City, Zanies in Nashville, TN, Side Splitters in Knoxville, TN, and many more.  She showcased at the 2014 World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas.  She has shared the stage with such comics as Charlie Murphy, Jim Florentine, Ty Barnett, and Jimmy Shubert.  She also studied with the legendary Groundlings in Los Angeles.
