Old York Cellars Welcomes Back Headliner: Chris Monty

With over 20 years of stand-up comedy and television under his belt, Chris Monty continues to delight audiences worldwide. His latest high-profile projects include his stand-up comedy special titled “Just Be Happy” which can be found on and “What’s the Worst That Could Happen” (Amazon Prime). He has also had many television & film appearances such as Vinyl (HBO), Red Oaks (Amazon Prime), Paul Bart: Mall Cop 2 (Sony Pictures), Kevin Can Wait (CBS), and Orange is the New Black (Netflix).

In his stand-up, Chris Monty channels a refreshing and unique style of the 1960’s cool funnyman mixed with a modern chic. His unique take on current topics and storytelling are reminiscent of the comics that would keep The Rat Pack in stitches for weeks. He spans generations in that older crowds love his cool, retro style and younger crowds see a cadence that they haven’t seen on stage. It is truly something unique to experience.

Chris’s experience as a stand-up lends itself to his wide-ranging acting work also. He uses his quick improvisational skills and ability to use physical slapstick and timing to enhance his lead and supporting actor’s roles.  Whether on screen or stage, Chris Monty has the chops to make your creative endeavor something to be remembered for months and years to come.

Featured Comedian: Kevin Israel

Kevin Israel at Old York Cellars, May 6, 2023.
Kevin Israel has a resume that will make you look twice. If you can think of a job, Kevin has probably worked it during his 40 years on earth. He was a lawyer, a political operative, a communications specialist, and, of course, a stand-up comedian. For over 15 years Kevin had been entertaining audiences with an act forged at his family’s dining room table, in his fraternity house, and in the halls of law school. Kevin has an act unlike any other, because it is his story and his alone.  With razor sharp wit and the ability to improvise that only a lawyer could possess – once you see him, you won’t forget him.
