BIOGRAPHY:

Born Cornelius Crane Chase, he changed his name to Chevy Chase, joined the Saturday Night Live crew, and embarked on a highly successful movie career. Chase scored in the eighties with hits such as Caddyshack (1980), the National Lampoon movies and the Fletch movies. All his films show his talent for deadpan comedy. Sadly, his career has generally worsened throughout the nineties, starring in flops such as the wholly mediocre Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992), and Cops and Robbersons (1994).


TRIVIA:
  • His mother Cathalene Parker Browning was the only daughter of Capt. Miles R. Browning, Admiral Halsey's Chief of Staff for much of WW2.
  • Before his breakthrough as a comedian, he worked as a cab driver, truck driver, motorcycle messenger, waiter, busboy, construction worker, audio engineer, produce manager in a supermarket, salesman in a wine store and theater usher.
  • Runs five miles a day to stay fit and healthy.
  • Was a long-time class clown expelled from private schools like NYC's Dalton but did well at Stockbridge School in Massachusetts. Expelled from Haverford College after bringing a cow into the third floor of a campus building. Transferred to Bard College, where he dated actress 'Blythe Danner' (qv) and graduated in 1967.
  • Attended Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.
  • Chase is a member of the exclusive Hollywood Gourmet Poker Club. Members included fellow card players 'Martin Short (I)' (qv), 'Steve Martin (I)' (qv), 'Carl Reiner' (qv), 'Barry Diller' (qv), 'Neil Simon (I)' (qv) and the late 'Johnny Carson (I)' (qv).
  • Has a street named after him in New Orleans, Louisiana, possibly due to the Southern U.S. setting of _Fletch Lives (1989)_ (qv); and another street named after him in Cochranton, Pennsylvania.
  • Chevy Chase is the name of a 16th century ballad about the battle between Earl Douglas and Earl Percy, as well as the name of a city in Maryland.
