Fonseca attended college on a scholarship from Dow Jones by being one of four national winners in a minority journalist writing contest. The journalism department of Trinidad State Junior College was on the third floor with no elevator. He tackled stairs numerous times a day. Upon his graduation, they installed an elevator and named it the â€œChris Fonseca Elevator.
Fonseca began his comedy career following college. He performed at the Kennedy Center for President George Bush Sr. and George W. Bush for the 15th anniversary of The American with Disabilities Act. For more information about the artist, visit www.fonsecacomedy.com.
