‘Underground Comedian’ is a phrase Louie Christie coined to describe being a new comedian who is not successful.
Louie Christie does not perform live regularly. He prefers to do comedy on this new thing called…
So catch him if you can, doing stand-up comedy in small basements.
Below and above pubs.
In London, United Kingdom, and other places.
“Always ready to ask questions about why/how we do things.”
– Pete Camp
Louie Christie does stand-up comedy only very occasionally.
Usually leaving just enough time between gigs to forget any jokes and/or stage craft.
His stand-up comedy style is alternative, observational, irreverent, a bit dry, and multi-layered.

Alternative: Following in the footsteps of the British 1980's comedy movement that offered an alternative to the racist and mother-in-law jokes that were popular at the time. The term ‘alternative’ has somewhat lost it’s meaning ever since punk rocker Johnny Rotten started doing butter adverts. And since shop owner Malcolm McLaren manufactured the Sex Pistols boy band. This story has been corroborated by a woman in a pub, and she should know, she was a groupie at the time, and “alternative”.
Observational: Not one-liners
Irreverent: Not reverent
Dry: Not sure (computer thinks dry is a bit like Bill Murray)
Louie Christie basically stands on stage and tells people how he sees the world.
Funny-odd, and, funny “ha ha”.

Louie Christie has never won a comedy competition, let alone entered one.
Except once by accident in Margate.
He didn’t win.
It was won by his arch nemesis, and ex-comedy-partner, ‘musical’ comedian Boris Witzenfeld.
