CHRIS LANNAN : Writer, Actor

Humble and modest are the best words to describe Chris Lannan. That’s why he won’t tell you he’s a vegan, or that he’s a non-dues paying member of Mensa. His penis is also slightly larger than average, and he talks about THAT all the time. He says he’s proud to have been in every Company sketch show so far.
