If you were under age contacting him sending him nudes cause he’s a celebrity now all of a sudden your over him that doesn’t make him a pediphile!”
Canyon News reached out to the Hollywood Laugh Factory night staff as D’elia is known to perform there almost weekly prior to COVID 19. Servers wanted to stay anonymous, but said the following:
“He definitely came off as a NICE guy. As for him with women? I heard he was a player. The usual comedian profile. I’ve never seen him inappropriately with any of the girls.”
“He was always kind to me. A lot of comics would walk up past us like were trash, but he would acknowledge my presence and say hello,” one individual told Canyon News.
A server on staff told Canyon News that one night when the staff was working late, D’elia’s opener, Micheal Lenoci walked over and tipped a few of the girls $100 saying it was “from Chris.”
