Everyone knows Chevy Chase, just by his name alone, and this is because he is the true personification of everything funny. He is also one of the very best of comedians ever and has been for a very long time. The very first time that Chase got exposed to comedy was as part of a comedy ensemble called Channel One that was sort of underground in description, and this was back in the late 1960s, and he was one of the people who originally did co-find it.
Before he got into the world of comedy and became a big success. Chase pretty much worked a whole lot of different odd jobs in the very beginning. This is before he began acting in National Lampoon and also became a regular member of the cast on Saturday Night Live. Chase always had a tremendous love for comedy and it was something that did show in everything he did do, very early on.
In addition, Chevy Chase, also did do comedy writing in the beginning of his career, as well. He wrote a one-page skit on Mission Impossible that did appear in Mad Magazine back in 1970 and he was also a writer for the Smothers Brothers Show, which didn't stay on television very long. Nonetheless, Chase was branching out, and the comedy part of his life was something that was very diverse in the world of entertainment.
Chevy Chase was born into a very prominent New York family and his nickname of "Chevy" was something that he got from his beloved grandmother. He did decide to move into comedy full-time in 1973 and this is when he became a regular member of the The National Lampoon Radio Hour. National Lampoon Radio Hour was a syndicated funny radio series. This series did also star regulars such as Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, and John Belushi. Not long after that he moved on to Saturday Night Live, and the rest is comedy history from there, as Chevy Chase did establish a big name for himself in the world of comedy entertainment.
