In 1974 a couple of teenagers decided to skip their post-prom party and go â€˜neckingâ€™ instead. 9 Â½ months laterâ€¦ a star was born. And in the delivery room next to the starâ€¦ Chad Daniels was born. Itâ€™s always been like that. So close yet so far away.
In 1998, after doing open mic at Minneapolisâ€™ ACME Comedy Company, Chad was given the opportunity to be the House MC at the Westward Ho in Grand Forks, ND. Opportunity? Yes, opportunity. Performing six shows a week and having to host karaoke after each show in the dead of winter 60 miles from the Canadian border while living in a 6x8 motel room next to a french fry factory? How could you not agree? When opportunity shows up at Chad's door it shows up as Alan Funt.
All those nights in the frozen tundra paid off. Chad began touring the country performing at clubs, colleges, bowling alleys, and Elksâ€™ Lodges.
Meanwhile, Chad was starting a family. He married a Genetics professor. STAY IN SCHOOL. Even if you donâ€™t learn anything, wait, sex could be right around the corner. Chad has two beautiful children. â€œThey better be. My wifeâ€™s a Genetics professor. Some of my friends have ugly kids. Not fun."
In 2003, Chad performed as a finalist in Comedy Centralâ€™s Laugh Riots competition, the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, which got him enough attention to make his network television debut on the Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn. Since then he has released his debut comedy album â€˜Two Minutes for Stale Hackingâ€™, performed on Comedy Centralâ€™s â€˜Live at Gothamâ€™, recorded his second album â€˜Busy Being Awesomeâ€™ which is due out this spring on Stand-up Records, and taped his own half hour special â€˜Comedy Central Presentsâ€¦ Chad Danielsâ€™.
Chad is 5'10", has the blood type A positive, enjoys Easter because of the cool story and Cadbury eggs (crÃ¨me not caramel), has average looks, doesnâ€™t know enough about computers to put a video on youtube and loves writing in the third person.
Well, I hope we learned something about Chad Daniels here today. Unfortunately for the true fans this bioâ€™s information has probably already been picked through at the public records office.
