Chris Redd is an actor, writer, and standup comedian. You’ve seen him as Andy Samberg's rapper nemesis Hunter the Hungry in "Popstar." Complex Magazine called his character the film's best part.

He’s also in the series "Love" and "Lonely and Horny," and you’ll soon be seeing him in the upcoming films "The House," opposite Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell. He moved to LA from Chicago, where he played Second City all the time.

How does he feel to be in Los Angeles now? "A man threw up on my shoes, like the first week I was here," he said. "I was so mad. But also, I was like 'here I am! LA!'"
