Who is Chris D’Elia?

Christopher William ‘Chris’ D’Elia was born on 29 March 1980, in Montclair, New Jersey USA; his nationality is American although he comes from a family of Italian and Polish descent. He’s a stand-up comedian and actor, perhaps known best for his role as Alex Miller in the sitcom “Whitney”.

From an early age, Chris had an interest in comedy and acting, citing that his idols were Eddie Murphy, Jim Carrey, Mitzi Shore and Bryan Callen. He started acting and performing stand-up comedy while he was in high school, and subsequently made it to Comedy Central, making his stand-up debut in 2013, performing his one-hour stand-up special “White Male Black Comic”.

Although it all seemed great for this actor and performer, in June 2020 he was accused of sexual harassment, and these allegations had a huge impact on his career. Comedy Central removed his special, and he lost his role in the series “Army of the Dead”.


According to Cable News Network (CNN) Entertainment, in September 2020, Chris asked actress Megan Drust for a ride home from a Los Angeles restaurant, and allegedly unzipped his pants and started masturbating in her car.
