Born & raised in Dallas, TX, Crist Guzman attended American Broadcasting School. Shortly after working behind the scenes at Power 108 in Waco, she developed and operated her own radio show, “This & That” so she could be behind the mic. The stage soon came calling in 2015. Hitting the Dallas scene, she has performed at Hyenas, Hat Tricks & Dallas Comedy House. Her brand of comedy includes hilarious tales of marriage & family that “almost” everyone can relate to. She can also be seen making guest appearances alongside the great Poppy Champlin & joining the Queer Queens of Qomedy on the Texas leg of their tour. Crist has performed at Chicago Women's Funny Festival, Memphis Urban Laughs Comedy Festival and also shared the stage with Gina Yashere at Magooby's Jokehouse in Baltimore.
