Chevy Chase was bornon 8 October 1943 in New York City, American, is Comedian, Actor. Chevy Chase is a famous comedian, film and TV actor and writer. He became a house-hold name with his television debut on Saturday Night Live. His big break, however, did not turn him into the big celebrity which many dream of when coming to Hollywood. Among several roles he played on television and in films, his portrayal of ‘Irwin M. Fletcher’ in the Fletcher film series and his role in the National Lampoon series were the best. However, his failures and obtuse decisions while picking roles overshadowed his comic brilliance. Chase has a great knack and passion for music - a fact not known to many. He played the drums for a few years with different college and church bands. Like many other struggling actors, Chase did a host of odd jobs to support himself before realising his passion for comedy and films. Even after his constant career setbacks, he made effective comebacks. He is presently working on a couple of new film projects - one of them being a sequel to his movie ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’. His impeccable comic timing and a career filled with triumphs and tribulations, makes him an interesting comedian who has also managed to inspire younger talents like Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell.
