The self-proclaimed leader of the Sweater Vest Army burst onto the stand-up comedy scene in Los Angeles in the summer of 2004 and hasn't looked back. His famous trademark outerwear has gotten him national recognition, and even publicly acknowledged by former Ohio State head football coach and original Sweater Vest wearer Jim Tressel.
Chad Zumock is a proud 2.4 GPA General Studies graduate out of Kent State University, the same University that produced famous comedians such as Arsenio Hall, Steve Harvey, and Drew Carey. He captivates audiences with his high energy humor, brutal honesty about his life, and quick slacker wit. His likability is what connects him with all kinds of people and makes him a strong draw for all over the country, and also a strong social media presence.
His stand-up comedy has led him to appearances on Gotham Comedy Live on AXS TV, Comedy Central, The Artie Lange Show, Spike TV, Cinemax, E!, HBO, numerous low-budget commercials, and even a writing spot on the 2006 Comedy Central Roast of William Shatner. In 2015 he released his Top 20 iTunes ranked comedy album "Reckless Operation" which also can be heard on Sirius XM Raw Dog, SLACKER and Pandora Radio.
For Cleveland audiences Chad was an everyday voice on the legendary 100.7 WMMS for over three years, taking his drive-time talk radio slot to number one in several key demographics. He was also correspondent for Tailgate 19 during the 2011 Cleveland Browns season and was honored by the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers franchise in 2012 with "Sweater Vest Night"
Chad's Podcast "The Sit Down Zumock Podcast!" has a huge-cult following and is on the Punch Drunk Sports Network: A Division of "All Things Comedy" Can be heard on iTunes, Stitcher, and at www.chadzumock.com
He hopes his stand-up comedy will one day lead him to his dream job of being in 'The Beastie Boys," replacing the late, great Adam "MCA" Yauch R.I.P.
