Austin Russell, more commonly known by his nickname, Chumlee (born September 8, 1982), is an American ...
As Corey's devoted childhood friend, Chumlee is just like a son to Rick and he's been around the shop since he was a kid. Everybody loves Chum, but he is often the butt of the boys' jokes. Part of the reason he isnâ€™t taken seriously is that he constantly begs Corey to buy items that entertain him--like video games and circus paraphernalia-- that usually doesn't make good business sense. And, although his heart of gold makes him a pro at customer service, it's continually proven to be bad business for the shop. Chumlee always wants to give his patrons the best deal and often takes their side--a trait that never fails to push Rick's buttons. Where did Chumlee get his nickname? Friends in elementary school took the name from cartoon character Tennessee Tuxedoâ€™s sidekick, a walrus named Chumley.
