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:
  • 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).
  • Helped campaign for 'John Kerry (I)' (qv) in the 2004 Presidential Election.
  • 'Paul Simon (I)' (qv) is one of his best friends. He appeared alongside Simon in the music video "You Can Call Me Al," in which he lip-syncs all of Simon's lines. Due to that video's remarkable success, Chase was asked to return when Simon released his follow-up album. In the music video for "Proof", Chase was accompanied by another of his best friends, 'Steve Martin (I)' (qv).
  • In a 1975 New York magazine cover story, NBC executives referred to Chase as "The first real potential successor to 'Johnny Carson (I)' (qv)" and claimed he would begin guest-hosting _"The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" (1962)_ (qv) within 6 months of the article. It never happened.
  • Won an amateur orchestral conducting contest in Los Angeles, where he and other celebrities (such as 'Alan Rachins' (qv)) competed to inspire appreciation for classical music.
  • Runs five miles a day to stay fit and healthy.
  • 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.
  • Was a favorite comedian of the students in _"Head of the Class" (1986)_ (qv).
