Chris Zito has spent the last thirty years sharing his obsession of family with comedy fans and radio listeners all over the country. Starting out as half of the comedy team "Zito and Bean" right out of acting school, Chris Zito moved quickly to develop his own take on life as a (very!) young father. It wasn't long before he became a mainstay of the early Boston Comedy Scene, eventually making appearances on Comedy Central, USA Network, A&E, NESN and HBO with Larry David among others.
If you haven't seen Zito live you've almost certainly heard him on the radio with morning show stints on WZLX, OLDIES 103FM and WXLO before moving to MIX93.1FM where he currently hosts the morning show.
Chris Zito is an anomaly among comedians. Whether detailing life as an older father of a preschooler or shuddering at the memories of trying to guide his oldest daughter through her teenage years, Chris Zito's audiences are always acutely aware of what he holds most dear. This honest and open presentation is what makes such a strong connection between Chris and whoever sees him perform. Audiences enjoy Chris Zito's clean, funny, and upbeat approach and constantly find themselves laughing out loud while nodding in recognition at themselves!
