Chris O’Brien is a comedian, writer, and contributor to climate change. He can be seen around New York — sometimes panhandling, sometimes doing standup; always doubting himself.

His popular sound/video collage and comedy show on Makerparkradio airs live every other Friday at 6pm and travels immediately and smoothly through electromagnetic waves into most devices.


O’Brien is the creator/producer of the “Hidden Treasure” podcast with Robert Funaro and Mike Bocchetti. The show looks into historic anomalies, myths, legends, and other nonsensical conundrums. Chris is the creator and host of “Ghost Tales,” a live story-telling talk show at Historic Richmondtown in Staten Island that focuses on personal histories.

O’Brien’s fiction and non-fiction writing has appeared in publications such as The Brooklyn Rail, Yankee Pot Roast, Edtech Weekly. His work as a teaching-artist in NYC schools was featured on NPR. Chris currently writes and produces videos for several comedians and production companies. His original pilot, “Weird Spiritual Bastard” is currently in production.
