Chris Allen was an original troupe member, serving as the narrator for It's All Been Done Radio Hour from its inception through February 2020. Starting in early 2018, Chris also became the editor for the It's All Been Done Radio Hour and It's All Been Trekked Before podcasts, the latter of which he dropped at the start of 2020.
Originally from Chicago, he now lives near Columbus, Ohio and works as a Financial Adviser.
Chris worked at two radio stations in southwestern Michigan and the Chicago 'burbs. He was an on-air personality and a production voice for commercials for eight years. He currently runs a hobby internet station, "OffTheCharts!", featuring pop and rock music from vinyl.
The narrator is the only role Chris originally auditioned for, though he has earned a couple of additional parts. He has rarely missed a performance, having narrated all but two monthly and special shows through the end of 2018. In 2019, however, he sat out five monthly shows and all the specials before resigning as narrator after the February 2020 show. He continues to be the podcast editor and first substitute narrator for the show.
Chris's Meet the Cast was the thirteenth in the series, released as podcast episode 74.
