With more than 3,500 live performances, stand-up comedian Cris Nannarone is a veteran road warrior. Nannarone has traveled North America headlining comedy clubs, festivals, conferences and everything in between.

Cris’ style is traditional stand-up — a microphone and an audience (no shiny stuff). His material is inspired by his own life — personal experiences, misunderstandings and mix-ups, “I exaggerate everything that annoys or confuses me,” he says. “I don’t do much on the opposite sex, they scare me.”

Now Cris takes on his greatest challenge as the Host of CMT’s ‘Burger Wars’ – The Ultimate search for the best Burger, Taco and Pizza in every town city or hamlet.

Cris grew up in an Italian family, full of laughs, passion and lots of great food. “My mother was the best cook I’ve ever known, I’m not, I’m a good orderer, and a great eater. My Motto is “I know what I like, and I like what I know. But I’ll try anything once, ONCE!”

Cris has appeared in numerous radio and TV spots, documentaries, TV series and feature films including: Heartland (2012), Boot Camp (2008), Scar (2007), Im Tal der wilder Rosen (2007), Call Me: The Rise and Fall of Heidi Fleiss (2004), Bad Faith (2003), Tom Stone (2002), Cover Story (2002), Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (2000), The Legend of the Ruby Silver (1996), Convict Cowboy (1995), MacGyver (1989), The Lady Forgets (1989) and Booker (1989).
