Chris Witaske was promoted to series regular for season 3 of “Love,” which is currently filming. Witaske grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, and was taken to his first Second City show as a teenager by his father. A week later he signed up for classes. After years of training and performing in Chicago, he was a member of two Second City e.t.c. shows. He was flown out to audition for Saturday Night Live three times, and met with Lorne Michaels after each audition. Chris talks about all this, auditioning for “Love,” which was created by an old college buddy, Paul Rust, and how he was able to help create his character, Chris Czajkowski.
Chris hosts a live interview show once a month at UCB Sunset called “So You Think You Do Comedy.” Previous guests include Fred Willard, Bob Odenkirk, and Claudia O’Daugherty from “Love.”
