To begin with, he was taught at The Bronx High School of Science, and later educated at Miles College, and graduated from Lehman College. Talking about his career, he rose to fame in the late 1980s after starring in the hip hop musical entitled “Kid’n Play” alongside his stage partner, actor Christopher Martin – also known as Play. In 1990, the two starred in the comedy film “House Party” directed by Reginald Hudlin, abd due to the critical acclaim received as well as the box office grossing $26.3 million (with a budget of just $2.5 million) the sequel “House Party 2” directed by Doug McHenry and George Jackson was released in 1991. The film debuted as number one at the box office, although the critical response was mixed. “House Party 3” (1994) directed by Eric Meza was also well received by critics and cinema goers. In 2013, “House Party: Tonight’s the Night” was released directed by Darin Scott but it wasn’t as successful as the previously mentioned ones. Regardless, Christopher’s net worth was steady.

Moreover, hip hop duo “Kid’n Play” starred in the comedy film “Class Act” (1992) directed by Randall Miller. Due to the huge popularity, they have released several studio albums “2 Hype” (1988), “Kid ‘n Play’s Funhouse” (1990) as well as “Face the Nation” (1991). It is worth saying that Reid was well known for his typical hi-top fade haircut.

Furthermore, Christopher landed roles in such films as “The Temptations” (1998), “Straight Out of L.A.” (2010), “Supah Ninjas” (2011) as well as “MAD” (2013). As a guest he was invited onto a number of television shows, including “Sister, Sister”, “The Dawn and Drew Show”, “Comics Unleashed”, “Martin” and others. Additionally, he has hosted contest shows, for example “It’s Showtime at the Apollo” and “Your Big Break”.

What is more, he constantly tours as a stand-up comedian, and Reid has also appeared as 1st Lieutenant Alphonso Adams in the third-person shooter video game “Spec Ops: The Line” (2012). All the previously mentioned engagements also increased the outright size of Reid’s net worth.
According to the media, Reid has experienced some legal problems, accused of driving under the influence of alcohol. Later on, he was sentenced to probation.

Finally, in the personal life of the actor and comedian, Christopher Reid married Kimberly Turner in 2004, and they have three children.
