Christina Pazsitzky’s First Onscreen Role was an MTV Show
The hearty comedian was born on June 18, 1976, in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. She was born to Hungarian parents that emigrated from Hungary in 1969. By 1980, Christina moved with her family to the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, California. However, in the year 1994, she became a US citizen.

But like most of the world, Christina Pazsitzky found out that the conservative choice and path of least resistance is not her passion. Unlike most of us, however, she found the courage to quit and pursue her true interest in comedy.
But like anyone who has followed their passion knows, the road is not easy. For the first four years after making the decision, Christina worked 22 jobs to make ends meet and either quit or got fired from them. At the time, Christina’s only onscreen appearance was a starring role in the MTV reality show, Road Rules, in 1995.

Christina has performed at plenty of comedy shows, including Showtime’s special Red Light Comedy, Nuvo TV’s Stand Up and Deliver, and TV Guide’s Stand Up in Stilettos. While her stand up career was taking off, Christina took up writing.

While writing for the show, she also appeared as part of its round table guests, all between 2009 and 2010. She also put her writing skills in action while writing for the TBS show Funniest Wins with Marlon Wayans, among others.
Eventually, with the help of her podcast show, Your Mom’s House, her stand up career took off. No longer stuck behind a desk or the screen, writing for others, Christina Pazstizky has taken charge of her comedy career.

Christina Pazsitzky is married to fellow comedian Tom Segura. They tied the knot in November 2008, and together they co-host the podcast Your Mom’s House. Their union and joint success is a result of a chance meeting at a comedy club in Los Angeles in 2003.
At the time, Tom was still finding his feet in comedy while Christina had spent a couple of years in the local stand up scene. Like a mentor to an upstart, the two struck up a friendship, and for months, they stayed friends. That is until Christina broke up with her boyfriend. After an acceptable period of grieving, Tom asked Pazsitzky out and ended up having their first date at a local bar.
After a few years of dating, they got married. The early years of their marriage were rough, as both comedians hardly saw each other, with work keeping them apart. Eventually, a suggestion by Joe Rogan for the couple to start a podcast together led to the creation of Your Mom’s House, aligning their professional and personal interests.
Since they fixed their marriage and became further established as a couple, they have grown their family. Christina Pazsitzky and Tom Segura welcomed their first child, Ellis, in 2016 and the second, Julian, in 2018. The couple also has two dogs, Theo Huxtable and Bitsy. The comedian and her family all live in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles.
