Chris Morris, who honed his comedic skills at Archbishop Carroll High School, is starring alongside George Wendt of Cheers fame in the indie film Stealing a Survivor, writes Rick Cawley for Montgomery News.
Morris also finished a second independent film, Sagacity, in early October.
Morris grew up in Roxborough in a devout Catholic family. He’s the son of former La Salle University basketball coach Speedy Morris, but his talent was comedy.
He refined his stand-up work at La Salle, where he and his dad, playing the straight man, developed a comedy act.
He landed his first post-college role in the 2005 film Kids in America, then later a supporting part in 99 Percent Sure.
In between comedy gigs, Morris trained as a Therapeutic Staff Support worker with the Philadelphia School District and paired with an autistic student. That gave him a deep empathy for children with special needs, which helped him in his role as an autistic adult in Sagacity.
He’s been busy promoting an anti-bullying science fantasy book he wrote and self-published on Amazon, Planet Legasy.
For now, he continues pursuing his comedic dream.
“I’m never gonna stop doing what I love to do,” he said.
