Christopher Paul "Chris" Gethard (pronounced /ˈɡɛθərd/; born May 23, 1980) is an American actor, comedian, and writer. He is the host of The Chris Gethard Show, a talk show based out of New York City which currently airs on Fusion.
Gethard was born in West Orange, New Jersey, to Martha and Jeremy Gethard. Gethard is also the author of Weird NY, a book detailing the ghost stories and urban legends of New York, and A Bad Idea I'm About to Do, a collection of stories from Gethard's life, which has been highlighted on This American Life. Previously, Gethard served as an editorial assistant for the popular Weird NJ and Weird US publications.
He is an avid fan of The Smiths and has two tattoos related to the band—Morrissey's signature on his right shoulder (based on an actual signature he got in marker on his arm), and "It takes strength to be gentle and kind," a lyric from "I Know It's Over," on his right biceps.
