Chinedu is a comedian, actor and writer best known for his stand up appearances on Television, internationally and around the United States. Most currently Chinedu was seen on the new season of the hit comedy series The Mindy Project (FOX/HULU) and just came back from an overseas tour performing for the US Troops stationed across the Middle East. 
Born and raised in south Los Angeles with direct Nigerian roots, Chinedu is making his way through the comedy scene. He got his start in comedy after a friend in college dared/encouraged him to try stand up. Chinedu, always down for a 360 degree life change, told himself “Why not?” After a successful enough first show 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 graduating, Chinedu moved back to LA to put his education in Sociology to good use by pursuing his entertainment dreams. Chinedu began performing nightly anywhere he could, while completing grad school at LMU 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 Laugh Factory, The Hollywood Improv, The Comedy and Magic Club, THe Comedy Union, The Comedy Store, and many more. You might have seen his name on the same line up with other renown comedians such as: Mike Epps, Dom Irrera, Dane Cook, Deon Cole, Chris D’elia, Ian Edwards, Marlon Wayans and the list goes on. As well as independently 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 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 latest Ventura Harbor, Burbank, San Diego and the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival (2014). Chinedu comedic talents were also seen 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 lead writer on comedy specials that were aired for SHOWTIME.
“Appearing on numerous stages, Chinedu provides the audience with a fresh point of view, a welcoming persona  and hilarious flips in logic that you often don’t see coming. Having performed everywhere there is a mic: clubs, colleges, corporate events, wedding receptions, etc. across the country, Chinedu has been labeled by audiences, comedians and bookers as clever energy with an array of jokes that are original, universal and as someone who is ready for primetime” (Chinedu’s Uncle).
Chinedu’s overall goal is to “just become successful enough to the point where spell check will stop trying to convince me I spelled my name wrong.”
