Bio

Chevy Chase is an American actor, writer and comedian best known for his role as Clark Griswold in four National Lampoon's Vacation films.

He also plays the role of Pierce, a man whose life experience has brought him infinite wisdom, in the television sitcom Community.

Chase first came to national prominence as a writer and performer with the original cast of NBC's Saturday Night Live, for which he won two Emmy Awards.

Soon after he had endeared himself to television audiences, Hollywood beckoned and Chase made his feature film debut in the comedy-thriller Foul Play with Goldie Hawn.

His many films include: Caddyshack, Seems Like Old Times, National Lampoon's Vacation, Fletch, National Lampoon's European Vacation, Spies Like Us, The Three Amigos, Funny Farm, Fletch Lives, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Memoirs of an Invisible Man, Cops and Robbersons, Man of the House, Vegas Vacation, Snow Day, Ellie Parker and Funny Money.

In 1992, Harvard's Hasty Pudding Theatricals, America's oldest undergraduate dramatic group, honored Chase as its Man of the Year.

Chase began his career in comedy as a writer and performer for Channel One, a local New York underground revue that satirized television. Channel One later became the basis for the film The Groove Tube.

He has written for Lily Tomlin and the Smothers Brothers, and earned a Writers Guild of America Award for writing Alan King's Energy Crisis, Rising Prices and Assorted Vices TV special. In addition, he won an Emmy Award for co-writing The Paul Simon Special.

In 2007, Chase received critical acclaim for his guest-starring role on NBC's award-winning series Law and Order. He followed that return to the small screen with a two-episode guest-appearance on the drama series Brothers and Sisters.

Chase also guest starred on the NBC series Chuck.

Chase resides in New York with his wife, Jayni, and their three daughters. He moved to the Northeast in the late nineties to be continually accessible to the needs of his family.
