I am the youngest of two boys and as a child I spent a lot of time playing with my GI Joes and that’s when I learned to do all of the silly voices and imitations that have become a trademark of my comedy. As I got older, I continued to do my impressions of other people in church and in school causing me to get several whippings and earn the moniker of “class clown.” One of my teachers suggested that I use my budding talents in the theater by playing Mercutio in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and that was when I was bitten by the acting bug.
I went on to act in several plays in high school and college while playing sports and having several odd jobs along the way. I have been everything from a boxer to a car salesmen and even a cop. After my short stint as a law enforcement officer, I began performing standup comedy and fell in love with the stage again. From there I was able to travel as a comedian, perform in some great plays, and was even lucky enough to land a few television roles on some great networks like:
Through my travels in theater, boxing, law enforcement, standup, and life; I have learned a lot about relationships, success, and failure and over the past year I have been passing on some of my own life experience on my YouTube Channel called Ask Chazz Ellis. Every week, I am answering questions and trying my best to help people avoid some of my mistakes, learn from my many success and failures, and having a great time doing it. The success ofAsk Chazz Ellis has also prompted me to take on another endeavor called The Chazz Ellis Project, which is a sketch comedy series allowing me to exercise my acting muscles and give people a deeper look inside of the mind of Chazz Ellis….I hope I don’t scare anyone, lol.
