Oct 12 Chris “Crazy Legs” Fonseca as seen on HBO & “The Late Show with David Letterman” with LA Lycan
What do you do with adversity? I laugh at it. For three decades, under the stage name, Chris “Crazy Legs” Fonseca I have had the thrill of sharing laughter with audiences. I was born with Cerebral Palsy, due to my mother dying during my birth, so my path has never been an easy one. Adopted by an elderly uncle and aunt, who spoke broken English at best, made the climb a bit steeper. I began doing comedy as a sophomore in college and was soon hitting open mics all around Colorado. After a very successful college journalism career, I did the logical thing. I started a comedy career. Quickly moving up in the comedy circles, I began touring in 1987, and in the ’90s, I began making appearances cable TV shows, The Arsenio Hall Show and The Late Show with David Letterman, and performed at the prestigious Montreal International Comedy Festival and the American Comedy Awards on ABC. Oddly enough I even appeared on the hit series Baywatch. I have done numerous benefits alongside names such as President Jimmy Carter, Amy Grant and more. As a person with a disability, I have received recognition from many places. I got to perform at the Kennedy Center for President George Bush Sr. and George W. Bush for the 15th anniversary of The American with Disabilities Act, also performed on the ABC special “An Evening of Hope—Christopher Reeve”. I know it’s unusual to see a handicapped person up onstage, and if I do well, the crowd may get something out of it besides the laugh. But I’m not out there on any kind of a mission to promote disabled people and demonstrate what they can or can’t do. I’m a comedian, and I’m just trying to be funny.
