Like Kristi Yamaguchi, Chris Caldwell Eckert hails from Hayward, California. He's the son of a quaint little British woman and a one-legged United States Marine, and thus, spent a lot of the 90's drinking tea and doing push ups. He is a graduate of The American Academy Of Dramatic Arts and a founding member of the improv and sketch group, The Gym. He's performed around town at places like UCB, Second City, I.O West, The Improv and The Comedy Store. Chris guest starred on Raising Hope, which won the 2013 GLAAD Award for best episode. Other credits include Doin' It Yourself (pilot presentation), I Snatched Andy Warhol, MAD TV, and Carmen Ghia in The Producers. Chris is extremely honored to be a Groundling. Semper Fi, brother Daniel!
