Location: Center for the Arts
Details: Chris “Crazy Legs” Fonseca was born with Cerebral Palsy and he uses his comedy paired with his disability to break down the many preconceived barriers about disabilities. He connects with his audience through humor and leaves attendees rolling in the aisles.

Chris first performed in Crested Butte in 1988 alongside Rosie O’Donnell and President Jimmy Carter raising funds for a young Crested Butte Physically Challenged Ski Program. Over the past 25 years as the Adaptive Sports Center has developed into a nationally recognized organization while Chris took his career in comedy to the top. Chris has appeared on David Letterman, HBO, Showtime and Baywatch and has been featured in USA Today, the LA Times and many more.

Chris recently released his fifth CD and is giving back to the programs that helped him launch his impressive career. He is excited to come back to Crested Butte to perform for the community and once again raise funds for the Adaptive Sports Center.

Joining Chris is another Colorado born comedian Kevin Bennett. Kevin channels English and French accents and rounds out his satirical act by playing the accordion.

Chris and Kevin are coming to perform for you in Crested Butte at the Center for the Arts on March 22, 2013. Doors open at 7:30 pm and the show will start at 8:00 pm. Tickets will be $15 for adults and $10 for kids – this is a family friendly show but will include adult topics and words (PG-13).  Tickets can be purchased at the Adaptive Sports Center or at the Center for the Arts. See you there!
