Chris Tallman

Chris Tallman is an actor and improviser who you’ve probably seen on Reno 911 on Crossballs. I really like those shows. He’s also appeared on the Superego podcast, which I really like. He was also really really good in The Sarah Silverman Program and Chocolate News and Kitten vs. Newborn. He’s really really great, if you haven’t gotten that yet.
