Comedian John Crist comes to the Washington State Fair on Wednesday, Sept. 11, part of the Columbia Bank Concert Series.

Crist has attracted more than one billion video views, with “Millennial International,” “Road Rage in the Church Parking Lot” and “Every Parent at Disney” going viral. His most recent tour – The Human Being Tour – sold out in 2018. He has performed in front of 100,000 people in 55 cities throughout the tour.

Nine years in, Crist has shared the stage with some of the best in the business, including Dave Chappelle, Jeff Foxworthy, Seth Meyers, Larry the Cable Guy, Trevor Noah, Dana Carvey, Adam Carolla, Chris D’Elia, Anjelah Johnson, Tim Hawkins, and Louie Anderson.

Named as one of the Top Five Comics to Watch, Crist is no stranger to accolades. He was a finalist in Comedy Central’s “Up Next Comedy Competition,” a finalist in the Comedy Works “New Faces Contest,” and named to the Burbank Comedy Festival’s “Best of the Fest.”
