CHRISTOPHER DUVA is an actor, writer and improvisor. Most recently, Christopher’s performance in his adaptation of David Foster Wallace’s essay, A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again, had a sold-out run and was a TimeOutNY Critics’ Pick at the NY Fringe Festival. It was remounted for the prestigious Fringe Encores Series. TheaterMania wrote that Christopher's performance was “as close to a tour de force as anyone’s ever seen.”

Christopher began his career in New York City where he received his MFA from NYU’s Graduate Acting Program and worked primarily in the theater. On Broadway, he appeared in the critically-acclaimed revival of The Elephant Man as well as the long-running Beauty and the Beast. Off-Broadway credits include David Mamet’s adaptation of The Voysey Inheritance, the award-winning original production of How I Learned to Drive and the original Off-B’way production of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged).

Now located in Los Angeles with his wife and daughter, Christopher completed both The Groundlings & Upright Citizens Brigade training programs. His sketch comedy and political parody videos have been featured on Funny or Die, Huffington Post and The New York Times BlogRunner. He is also a founding member of Serious V-Neck, a long-form improv group whose guests have included Dave Foley, Mindy Sterling, Jillian Bell, the Sklar Brothers and Fortune Feimster.

Christopher’s TV credits include Good Luck Charlie, Weeds, Medium, Judging Amy and Law & Order as well as numerous web ventures. He attended Middlebury College and the British American Drama Academy in London.
