The Chris & Paul Show
Chris O’Neill & Paul Valenti hail from Connecticut and formed The Chris and Paul Show back in 2000, then moved together to a 16’ x 8’ studio apartment in NYC. Throughout the years they’ve honed the uncanny ability to take seemingly predictable situations and attack audiences with such twists that people are left in shock after their signature surprise endings.
Now International Comedy Winners, The Chris and Paul Show have won such accolades as Best Newcomer Nominee – Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Best Actor in a Comedy (Chris & Paul tied) - New York Television Festival, Best Sketch Comedy Duo - the INNY Awards, Best Newcomer - the Montreal Comedy Festival, Best Sketch Group - the New Jacks Comedy Competition, Best Sketch Group - Jackpot Sketch Festival, & Best Comedy Troupe - Chicago Snubfest Festival. They were most recently finalists on NBC’s inaugural season of “Bring the Funny.”

McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square seats 730 and has become a showplace for live performances.
Uptown’s only historic theater, McGlohon Theater was originally the First Baptist Church sanctuary. The venue was carefully restored and opened in 1980. With its stained glass windows and Byzantine dome, this historically designated space makes each event a memorable experience. McGlohon Theater features the orchestra (stage) level and the balcony level.
The theater is named in honor of the late, legendary jazz pianist Loonis McGlohon of Charlotte.
