In an exclusive OCN interview, we get to know comedian Chris Porter a little better with a get-to-know-you Party Question Interview!
You may recognize Chris Porter from Comedy Central's Live at Gotham or his top-rated Netflix special, Ugly & Angry. The well-renowned comedian has an undeniable talent for making crowds lose it laughing.
We recently had the chance to get to know Chris a little better by way of a party question interview -- because, after all, there's no better way to get to know a person than by asking if they'd rather fight a lion or a bear.
His new comedy special, A Man From Kansas, is set for release on April 16. The pre-order link can be found here.
Here's what Chris Porter had to say to us about cars, unpopular opinions, pets, and more.
OCN interviewer, Ryan Mekkes: What is your favorite free time activity?
CHRIS PORTER: Playing my guitar.
OCN: If you could only eat from one restaurant for the rest of your life, where would you eat?
CHRIS PORTER: Waffle House ... Health-wise, probably a poor choice, but when I’m hammered at 3 a.m. I’m gonna seem like an f****** genius.
OCN: What's your favorite pick-up line?
CHRIS PORTER: Never been a "pick-up line" guy, but if I was gonna use one that I've heard, it’d be this one -- "Ya know, I’ve been looking around this place and I’ve noticed I’m not the biggest guy here, I’m not the cutest guy here, nor am I the most well-off, but I am the only one talking to you.”
OCN: What did you want to be growing up?
CHRIS PORTER: More popular.
OCN: What's one of your most unpopular opinions?
CHRIS PORTER: That Luke Bryan and his music are f****** terrible.

CHRIS PORTER: I can turn off women in a single sentence, but I think that’s pretty well-known.
OCN: Would you rather fight a lion or a bear, and why?
