Christopher Piatt is a dramatist, actor, journalist, activist, and spoken word artist born in Kansas. He migrated after college, first to New York City where he was part of the local theater scene, then to Chicago, at least in part to escape New York. He continued his work as a writer and performer thereafter from 2002. He quickly found a home for his storytelling as a regular feature on the Partly Dave Show, a revue hosted by Dave Awl. Piatt's narrative and social commentary have also been heard on Chicago Public Radio.
