Christopher Titus cut his teeth in comedy clubs in the '80s after having an epiphany as a teenager when he fell into a bonfire. But it wasn't until the late '90s when Titus -- whose comedy focuses on his upbringing in a highly dysfunctional family -- that Titus began to get more widespread traction. In recent years, Titus has been doing a weekly podcast from "The Combustion Lounge," but he still spends most of his time on the road, and you can check out his "Scarred For Life" show at Comedy Works South
on June 22 and 23.
We recently had a chance to chat with Titus at length about his early career, his comedy tutelage under Dana Carvey and his highly publicized run-in with Sarah Palin fans.
