Crazy Legs Heads to Burque: Chris Fonseca is ready to laugh

It was the '90s, and comedian Chris “Crazy Legs” Fonseca was at the height of his career. Diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a youth, he uses a wheelchairhence the nickname “Crazy Legs,” which is often the starting point of his comedy. With his dry humor and well-crafted one-liners, Fonseca “was on every sitcom in that decade,” he says, but “I started to drink, and things changed.” Fonseca, now two years sober, is prime for a comeback.

Positioning himself in this new world of comedy based on social media has been an interesting transition for the comic, but he says, “Comedy hasn’t changed. Where we get comedy has changed, but comedy is still comedy. I make people laugh, and that’s always wanted.” Now touring much more frequently, Fonseca brings his wit to The Stage Aug. 14 at Santa Ana Star Casino (54 Jemez Dam, Bernalillo). The 21+ show gets underway at 7:30pm. Cost is $10. Opening for Fonseca are John Mark Gard and Albuquerque’s own Keith Breckenridge.
