Chad Riden’s comedy is about his chaotic reality. A full time road comic since 2006, Riden’s last few years have featured bankruptcy, divorce, foreclosure and the best shows of his life. Chad has appeared on “The Daily Show on Comedy Central“, the Late Show with David Letterman’s “Tony Mendez Show”, ABC’s “Nashville,” and is featured on CMT-Canada’s upcoming “Mississippi Snake Grabbers.” Biding time until his “snake money starts rolling in” when he is “super duper MF’ing Canada Famous” – Riden continues to tour the nation using his smart-ass super powers for good, not evil.

“Chad’s a good guy. He’s been through a rough divorce and his heart is heavy; he’s got a burden. That burden makes him funny.”Marc Maron, WTF episode 209 (September, 2011) & in Marc’s book “Attempting Normal,” on page 175.

Over the course of a weekend in February 2011, Doug Stanhope called Chad Riden “wicked funny” once, “fucking brilliant” twice, and “stupid” only one time.
