Meet Chris Collins, WCF Founder and Executive Producer

Chris Collins had the idea of a comedy festival brewing since childhood when he was driven by two conflicting feelings: anxiety and absurdity. He didn’t know what absurd meant, but eventually read Aristophanes and clicked with the playwright’s views: absurdity and comedy. Later, Chris’s wish to work for justice and equity led him to co-found a chapter of Amnesty International, create an adjunct faculty union at the college where he teaches psychology, and pass environmental laws as a Woodstock Town Board member. Now, Chris has founded the Woodstock Comedy Festival, certain that laughter dispels ills, that the festival will be good for Woodstock – a town with a lot to laugh about – as fantastic comedians present the world to us in all its raw absurdity.
