Chris Trew a.k.a Terp 2 it is a nationally touring comedian, rapper and improv teacher. He’s toured the country hosting the Air Sex World Championships and performing at most major comedy festivals in North America. He’s released two nerdcore hip-hop albums (The Freshest Dude and My Wiener Touches the Ceiling) and performs often in Austin at both comedy and music venues. When he’s not in Austin, he’s in Los Angeles filming with Studio8.net, the homebase for all of Chris’ projects.

He cannot wait to get back to New Orleans full time and work his way in the comedy scene.
