Overview

Chevy Chase is a much-loved Hollywood star. His success as a writer and actor on Saturday Night Live in the 1970s made him a household name, but it had been a long, hard route to the top for Chevy—behind the fame lay a childhood riddled with abuse. But his remarkable strength and determination helped him rise above it and find his talent as an actor, writer, comedian, and musician. Best known for his role in the National Lampoon's Vacation series Chevy has starred in some of the greatest comedies of our time. Now, for the first time, Chevy speaks openly and candidly about his career, his personal struggle with drugs, his friendships with three presidents, and his family life. Honest, funny, and informative, this is the complex and fascinating world of Chevy Chase.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Chevy Chase's first reviews as a comedian were not encouraging. He was expelled from New York City's Dalton School and the prestigious Phillips Exeter Academy because of pranks and was dismissed from Haverford College after he led a goat up to the tenth floor. (Because goats can only walk up steps, not down, the college was obliged to hire a helicopter to bring the animal back to terra firma.) Before becoming a world-famous writer, actor, and comedian, this 14th-generation New Yorker worked as a truck driver, a fruit picker, a supermarket produce manager, a construction worker, and a theater usher. This authorized biography recaps the roller-coaster life of this original Saturday Night Live funnyman.

    I have been a Chevy Chase fan for as long as I can remember and this candid glimpse into his life was quite a treat! His family, along with his many friends, give praise to a man who overcame many odds and made a name for himself. A great book that I hardly put down!

    A very revealing look into the life of one of the funniest people in the world. It's interesting to see a different side of him. Highly recommended!
