Chinedu loves entertaining. Having superstar comedians he grew up admiring share the stage with him and call him hilarious, funny, or a great writer has been one of his career highlights and a dream come true.
Hailing from the Los Angeles area, this American born Nigerian is making a huge wave on the comedy scene. In addition, with his two degrees collecting dust from UCSB and LMU, he’s also a respected writer, and earth shattering youtube actor. CHINEDU has established himself as an intelligent comedic presence performing regularly at some of the country’s most renowned comedy clubs: The Hollywood Laugh Factory, The Hollywood Improv, The Comedy Store, The Comedy Union, The Jspot Comedy Club, Ventura Harbor Comedy Club, Comedy Hideaway, and Flappers just to name a few. As well as independently touring colleges nationwide annually.
Chinedu competed in NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity 2013 making it all the way past the 3rd round and waiting to hear back if he made the finals in November. In addition, he has just been confirmed to be on NUVO’s TV second season of Stand Up and Deliver Comedy Show being taped at The Hollywood Improv in September. Chinedu’s comedic talents were featured on television in his own comedy special on The Africa Channel (Time Warner), which still continually airs internationally. He has also been a featured performer of The Ventura Harbor Comedy Festival for 3 years straight and counting; performing for all of the following showcases: TV Showcase, Black Friday, International Comics, etc. Furthermore, Chinedu produces his own sell out show once a month in Los Angeles called The Comedy Kickback at Echoes Under Sunset in Echo Park and has written for 2 comedy specials on SHOWTIME. Appearing on numerous stages, Chinedu provides the audience with a fresh point of view, a welcoming persona, hilarious flips in logic, sugarless eye candy, and classic jokes that will make you want to repeat them to a group of friends the next day at work and or school or on the couch to yourself.
A writer for televised comedians and viral YouTube sketch comedy groups; Chinedu has been labeled by audiences, comedians, bookers, and his mother as clever energy – with jokes that are original, universal, hysterical, and as someone who is ready for primetime.
Chinedu knows what’s FUNny plain and simple; when he is performing for shows always trust you will get your money and time worth. Just give Chinedu a spotlight and a mic, and enjoy the GENIUS.
…Glad that’s over. Typing in third person has always been awkward for Chinedu, I mean for me.
