Old York Cellars Welcomes Headliner: Chris Roach
Christopher Brian Roach is a comedian and actor born and raised in New York. Roach has brought his unique and self-deprecating sense of humor to some of the biggest and best known stages such as The Borgata in Atlantic City. Known for some of his work on television commercials, he has also appeared on Comedy Central, “The Michael J. Fox Show,” and had a recurring role as Rodney, the lovable mental patient on the ABC network soap opera “One Life to Live.” Roach was recently cast on the new Kevin James show, in a multi-camera comedy series for CBS. “Kevin Can Wait” centers on newly retired police officer Kevin, played by James, who looks forward to spending more quality time with his wife and three kids – only to discover he faces much tougher challenges at home than he ever did on the streets. Roach will play Mott, one of James’ friends. Roach also wrapped CBS’ “Limitless” as Maurice, opposite actress Jennifer Carpenter and actor Jake McDorman.
Featured Comedian: Bill Chiang
An immigrant with a traditional Asian background, stand-up comedy is probably the last thing people would have predicted for Bill. In fact, even he doesn’t believe it. Out of curiosity, he tried one night in 2005 and since then, he has quickly become regular in clubs across the East Coast. Bill’s source for comedy comes from the absurdity and silliness of everyday life. His unique views on sex, TV and stories about growing up as an Asian immigrant in NYC makes him a favorite in clubs and benefits. Bill is a comedy competition winner in NYC, has been featured on Comcast On-Demand and has played in historic comedy venues such as the New York Comedy Club, the Comic Strip, Catch a Rising Star and the Comedy Cabaret in Philadelphia.
