Chris Bolton has yearned for the spotlight ever since he was a boy. He would often put on shows in the living room after the big Family Sunday Dinner. Belting out the Commercial “Wonderful, Wonderful Wonder Bra-aw-aww” was his Fave. Later he attended Gastown Actors Studio where he was inspired under the tootle age of the phenomenal Jessica Van Der Veen. Developing a character named Conni Smudge has been a twenty year journey and it has been his most rewarding to date. “She” has taken him all over the Globe. Conni’s wit, charm and approachable nature has afforded her the honour of performing in the most unlikely of places. From the Biker Bars of Nanaimo to the Grand Theatres of Europe, Mz Smudge has done them all. Chris/Conni adores being a reporter with Outlook TV. It gives “Her” the ability to show the World what an amazingly Inclusive, Loving, Entertaining city Vancouver is!
