About Chad Daniels
In 1974 a couple of teenagers decided to skip their post-prom party and go ‘necking’ instead. 9 ½ months later… a star was born. And in the delivery room next to the star… Chad Daniels was born. It’s always been like that. So close yet so far away.
In 1998, after doing open mic at Minneapolis’ 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 Elks’ Lodges.
Meanwhile, Chad was starting a family. He married a Genetics professor. STAY IN SCHOOL. Even if you don’t learn anything, wait, sex could be right around the corner. Chad has two beautiful children. “They better be. My wife’s a Genetics professor. Some of my friends have ugly kids. Not fun."
In 2002, Chad was nominated for Time Magazine’s “luckiest man alive”. Only to find out he lost it to David Carusso after booking CSI: Miami. In 2003, Chad performed as a finalist in Comedy Central’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. This year Chad performed on Comedy Central's new show 'Live at Gotham'. Check him out on www.comedycentral.com.
Chad is 5'10", has the blood type A positive, enjoys Easter because of the cool story and Cadbury eggs (creme not caramel), and has average looks.
