Chad Riden’s comedy is about his chaotic reality. A full time road comic since 2006, Riden’s last couple years have featured bankruptcy, a case of shingles, divorce, foreclosure and the best shows of his life. Chad has appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman’s “Tony Mendez Show”, several Comcast On Demand specials, dozens of independent short films, and was on NBC’s Last Comic Standing for exactly one MF’ing second. He has performed at the Memphis Comedy Festival (2012), Laughing Skull Comedy Festival (2010), and the Laugh Your Asheville Off Festival (2009). In April 2007, he recorded his first cd, “FREEdumb” which has been downloaded over 168,655 times (as of November 2010). Riden continues to tour the nation using his smart-ass super powers for good, not evil.
“Chad Riden – good guy. Been through a lot. His heart’s heavy. World’s weighing on Chad. Weighs heavy on Chad. He’s got a burden.. but he’s a funny guy. It makes him a funny guy. That burden makes him funny.” – Marc Maron, WTF episode 209 (September, 2011)
For those of you unaware of the history of this website, it wasn’t originally called “ChadRiden.com” – at first, it was “AmericaWhoIsYourFavoriteComedianOfAllTime.com” and while, admittedly, we didn’t really have a lot of content at the time.. we were very popular. Now, decades later, the only thingy left over from the old site is the poll that made us famous! Today, we focus on celebrating the life and career of the clear, undisputed winner of our survey: America’s Favorite Comedian Of All Time™, Chad Riden.
