BHL: Stand-up, Sit-down — In this episode, Black Hollywood Live host Nick Perdue interviews comedian Chaz Rodgers on the business of Stand Up Comedy and all of his current projects.
Chaz started stand up at 18 years old in Lansing, Mi. After winning a contest, he moved to Chicago to study acting at Columbia of Chicago. After half a semester and some encouragement from peers, Chaz moved to Los Angeles in a van to pursue acting and standup professionally. That shit didn’t work…and he struggled for 10 years. When luckily after classes at UCLA, Groundlings, Second City Theater, and Upright Citizens Brigade, Chaz started making a name for myself and was hired to write for Bounce TV shows “In The Cut”, and “Family Time”. Both created and directed by Bentley Kyle Evans, Executive producer of Martin and Jamie Foxx Show.
