This is more of an AutoBio than a Bio. The truth is most comedians write their own bios. I’m not judging. It’s a lot easier to brag about one’s own accomplishments while hiding behind third person. They are very well written. It seems comedians either 1. Have a Masters in English, or 2. A Thesaurus, and a lot of free time. I have neither.
I could write things like: Chad’s devilishly naughty nature shines through like comedy gold when he takes the stage. Chad’s disarming personality allows him to push boundaries only the truly funny attempt. His edgy style usually begins by splitting the room into two equally stunned fractions and then miraculously ends up with everyone leaving the club with a new favorite comedian. But that’s lame.Or I could write: Plenty of comics have jokes about marriage and children, but few speak about the experience with such uncompromising honesty. “Babies are miracles. Think about it. When they’re born their feet are tiny. Yet, they can somehow step on all your hopes and dreams.” It’s this acidic material, cut with underlying sweetness and served up with a knowing smirk, that perfectly encapsulates Daniels's take-no-prisoners style of comedy. Even though he was born and raised there he’s not interested in Minnesota Nice. With his onstage swagger and arsenal of incisive, uproarious material, he practically bullies the audience into loving him. Sounds awesome, but that’s not how I talk.
The truth is I’d rather you come see me to check it out for yourself. To get you to the club I’ll tell you this.
In 2004 I performed in the New Faces show at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. I’ve been on the Late Late show on CBS. In 2006 I was on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham. I have two CDs. Two Minutes for Stale Hacking which was self-produced, and my latest Busy Being Awesome on Stand-up! Records. I was named “Artist of the Year” in comedy by City Pages in 2009. I’ve been seen numerous times on “The Bob and Tom Television program”. I performed at the Aspen Comedy Festival for Rooftop Comedy and was named the Comic’s Comic. I have a half hour special called Comedy Central Presents… Chad Daniels, which was voted #5 of all time in 2010. I was invited back to the Just for laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal to perform in The Masters Show. And I am one of 13 comedians that have the honor to say they were on the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.
I’m funny. If you’re still not willing to come to a show you’re just being difficult.
Benny has as many personalities as he does voices, and not one of them is the voice of reason. He makes the joke sound simple but you will still be thinking about it a hour later. Benny highlights the humor of everyday life, along with the humor of lives you never imagined.
Benny Quash has been wanting to make people laugh since he can remember. Growing up in small town Wisconsin he knew he wanted a chance to get out. Otherwise, the only option was to continue weighing potato trucks at the Ore-ida plant.
He used the false facade that he wanted to be a radio dj, so he enrolled in ‘A’ ’school’ in Minneapolis. After arriving in the Twin Cities, Benny tried his hand at stand-up comedy and has nowperformed all over the United States and Canada. He has done venues from a hole in the wall bar, to a 50,000 seat stadium (but there were only 800 people there. Who are we kidding?)
