The Comedy Kickback w/ Chinedu Unaka, Chase Anthony & more!

  • Chinedu Unaka

    Chinedu Unaka

    Stand-up

    Chinedu Unaka is a comedian, actor and a writer, best known for his stand up appearances on television, around the United States, and internationally. In addition, to his newly taped comedy album "Mostly Kidding," which can be found on iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon, Spotify, Pandora, and SiriusXM later this year, Chinedu was last seen in a HBO short film, The Big Chop alongside Simone Missick (Misty Knight, Luke Cage), Island Hoppers (Facebook Watch), Coming to the Stage (HULU), The Mindy Project (FOX/HULU) and in the feature films, “It’s A Party” (Showtime) and “#Twominutesoffame.”  Chinedu also recently returned from a tour overseas performing for the US Troops stationed across the Middle East and a comedy tour of India. 
    Born and raised in south Los Angeles with direct Nigerian roots, Chinedu got his start in comedy after a friend in college dared/encouraged him to try stand up. Chinedu, down for 180 degree life change, told himself “Why not?” After a successful enough first show (didn’t cry or shit his pants) Chinedu became hooked; performing at every talent show, open mic and stand up night he could find at and around the University of California, Santa Barbara. After finishing school,, Chinedu moved back to LA to pursue his entertainment dreams. Chinedu began performing nightly anywhere he could, while teaching students with special needs until he figured out how to make a living through his passion.
     
    A fews years later, CHINEDU is still eating peanut butter everyday, but has established himself as a smooth comedic presence performing regularly at some of the country’s most renowned comedy clubs. Including his local favorites: The Hollywood Improv, The Comedy and Magic Club, The Laugh Factory, The Westside comedy Theatre, The Comedy Store and many more.  As well as touring universities nationwide annually through his “Study Break” College Comedy Tour reaching from USC and UCLA in Los Angeles to Ithaca College and Cornell University in New York.
     
    Chinedu has also competed in NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity competition – being named a top ten finalist out of 1000 + comedians. In addition, he was featured on NUVO’s TV Stand Up and Deliver and was named as a top finalist at the Laughing Devil, Ventura Harbor, Burbank, San Diego and the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival. Chinedu comedic talents were also seen early on TV in his own half hour comedy special on The Africa Channel as apart of Africa Laughs, which still continually airs internationally on Time Warner Cable. Furthermore, his name can be seen on the credits as writer for a comedy project that was aired for SHOWTIME.
     
    Chinedu is also the co-producer of The Comedy Kickback, a once a month stand up comedy show, that happens every second Friday in Los Angeles at The Hollywood Improv in The Lab
