Bonus Bio written by Eugene Mirman

Chris Duffy is a standup comedian, writer, and podcast host. He is the creator/host of You're the Expert and You Get A Spoon! Chris has appeared on National Geographic's Explorer, performed standup on Dreams TV (which I've never heard of), and written for numerous shows and pilots. He used to teach 4th grade and that should not surprise anyone that has met him. He does not know how to change a tire, but he does speak Greek and Korean, which are basically the same language with a few different letters.
