Fresh off the heels of Jen Metzger’s victory in the Democratic primary race for NY State Senate it was announced that there will be a fundraiser for her campaign on Friday, October 5 featuring stand-up comic Christian Finnegan. This night of laughter at the Rosendale Café will raise funds for Jen’s race to represent District 42 in the New York State Senate.
Democratic candidate for NYS Senate Jen Metzger has served more than a decade in local government: she chaired the Rosendale Environmental Commission for many years, served as Deputy Town Supervisor, and is currently in her second term on the Town Council. She also co-founded and directs the nonprofit organization Citizens for Local Power where she has worked to bring down utility costs, helped local governments save energy and money, and organized dozens of town and city councils across the political spectrum to stop the Pilgrim Pipelines. In addition to the Democratic nomination Jen is also the candidate of the Working Families and Women’s Equality parties.
Christian is perhaps best known as one of the original panelists on VH1’s “Best Week Ever” and as Chad, the only white roommate in “Chappelle’s Show’s” infamous “Mad Real World” sketch. He played Martin on the popular syndicated sitcom “Are We There Yet?” and politics junkies will recognize Christian from his many appearances on MSNBC.
Christian’s latest comedy special, “The Fun Part” is available on iTunes and Amazon, along with his first two albums, “Two for Flinching” and “Au Contraire!”.
Over the past decade, Christian has been a fixture on Comedy Central, having starred in his own one hour stand up special “Au Contraire!”, as well as “Comedy Central Presents”, “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn” and countless network interstitials. He’s also appeared on “Conan”, “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”, “Good Afternoon America” and “The Today Show”.
Christian splits his time between New York City and Cochecton, NY, with his wife, author Kambri Crews, and their faithful pooches Griswold and Billy.
