Christopher Cannon''s comedy career began while serving as a tank commander in the US Army at Fort Hood, Texas. While on field exercises, Sargeant Cannon, the budding comic, would entertain his fellow troops by performing comedy routines from the back deck of an M-1 Abrams battle tank. Upon discharge, Christopher headed south to Austin, where he found himself behind the wheel of a delivery truck by day and behind a mike on the comedy stage by night. He finally parked the truck for good in 1993 and dedicated himself full time to a career as a professional comedian.
As a regular member of Austin''s Laff Staff Improv troop, Christopher continued to evolve as a performer by sharpening his audience interaction skills and expanding his overall stage presence.
Along the way, he quickly advanced from opening act to Headliner, playing in some of the best known comedy venues in America: the Improv, Funny Bone, and Las Vegas.
