“Charging Mount Stand-up”

This memoir is a look in front of, and behind the curtain, at what actually happened my first year as a full-time professional stand-up comedian, during the ‘80s comedy boom.


Chip played ABC Sports President Roone Arledge opposite Steve Carell (Bobby Riggs) and Emma Stone (Billie Jean King) in the film Battle Of The Sexes.

He has appeared in over 230 TV shows, movies, and commercials including over 40 different sitcoms. His resume lists such classics as: Seinfeld, Friends, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Family Guy, and The Suite Life of Zack & Cody!

Chip had dramatic turns in NCIS, Homecoming, American Horror Story, and the art-house film Coyote Ugly.

A frequent sketch player on The Tonight Show and Arsenio, Chip was a semi-finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing.

It took me 160 auditions and 3½ years to book my first commercial, and almost four years before I booked my first TV show – 3rd Rock From the Sun.
The good news: That is where I had my first onscreen kiss. The bad news: It was with John Lithgow. Check out some of my nonsense:

Acting Reviews

“Chinery is probably the evening’s most highlighted performer (in) one of the best companies on today’s LA stages.”

Back Stage West

“Plenty of Fun! Damn funny.”

LA Weekly

“Chinery is a particular stand-out, hilarious.”
