REVIEWS


“What happens when a clever young pro golfer walks into a comedy club? If the fugitive from the pro golf tour is Chris Fuller, look for laughter and tears – because he’s funny – genuinely funny – and he’s been plagued by Bi-polar mood swings for years. Engagingly honest, Chris Fuller delves deep into his garage full of hopes, dreams, disappointments, and memories, compassionately displaying the inventive, often self-deprecating timing some comics are naturally blessed with. Directed by Mark S. Graham, “Cheese Fries & Chili Dips” is enormously touching and a rollicking good time.” …. Susan Granger, SSG Syndicate, Inc. Member of broadcast and film critics association, Drama Desk, etc.


“I was so inspired by Chris’ story and performance! It will stay with me for a while!” ….

Dr. Mohini Ranganathan, Associate Professor, Dept of Psychiatry, Yale School of Medicine; Staff Psychiatrist, VACHS


“Very few things are fantastic. Cheese Fries and Chili Dips is. It’s funny, tragic and full of humanity. A truthful and insightful look at two of the toughest things in the Universe. Living and Golf. Mr. Fuller has done a grand job!"….. George Gallo, Academy Award winning producer, writer, director – Bad Boys, Midnight Run, 29th Street
