May 9 @ 9:30 pmGet Tickets - $15 - $17 »
M.C. Chris is a rapper from Libertyville, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. He was one of the first rappers to focus solely on nerd life, rapping about Star Wars, Harry Potter, ninjas and unrequited love, instead of the usual hip-hop fare. M.C. got his start as an animator on many of the shows you’ve seen on Adult Swim. He was writer, actor, songwriter and lead animator for shows like Sealab 2021, The Brak Show, Space Ghost Coast to Coast and Aqua Teen Hunger Force. He has voiced characters on several Adult Swim pilots such as Welcome to Eltingville, Cheyenne Cinnamon, Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell and Tight Bros. He was also a producer of on-air content for over a year before leaving Williams Street to pursue a career in music. M.C. has since released seventeen albums and has crossed America countless times, touring as a headliner as well as opening for bands like Pinback, Reggie and the Full Effect and Ninja Sex Party.
M.C kickstarted “The M.C. Chris Cartoon” an animated extension of the skit universe featured on his records. Thanks to donations from his fans, he raised over $60,000 and produced a six-minute pilot presentation with the animation company Titmouse Inc.
For the past two years, every album M.C. has released has charted in the top ten on Billboard. A new album is scheduled to be released sometime in 2018. M.C. lives in Los Angeles with his wife and three-year-old.
