Chris Morris fine-tuned his comedic skills at Archbishop Carroll High School in Radnor. Now his comedy career is in motion, starring along-side George Wendt of “Cheers” fame in the indie film “Stealing a Survivor,” writes Rick Cawley for Montgomery News.
Morris also finished a second independent film “Sagacity” in early October.
Morris grew up on Roxborough in a devout Catholic family. He’s the son of coach Speedy Morris, but his talent was comedy.
He refined his stand-up work at LaSalle University where he and his dad, playing the straight man, developed a comedy act.
He landed his first post-college role in the 2005 film “Kids in America,” then later a supporting part in “99 Percent Sure.”
In between comedy gigs Morris trained as a Therapeutic Staff Support worker with the Philadelphia School District, paired with an autistic student. That gave him a deep empathy for children with special needs, which helped him in his role as an autistic adult in “Sagacity.”
He’s been busy promoting an anti-bullying science fantasy book he wrote and self-published on Amazon, “Planet Legasy.”
For now, he continues pursuing his comedic dream.
“I’m never gonna stop doing what I love to do.”
