“Padgett is a virtuoso guitar player and a deft actor who portrays characters with warmth and compassion.”CBC
Chase Padgett has been a professional actor and musician for most of his adult life. While attending the University of Central Florida Chase studied and worked at the Sak Comedy Lab in Orlando Fl, one of the best improv companies in the southeast. After graduating in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music he worked at Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in various comedic and musical roles including custom song writing for special events.
In 2010 he premiered his first solo show ‘6 Guitars’ which quickly became one of the most successful shows in the history of the North American Fringe Festival circuit, receiving numerous awards and setting box office records in almost every town it has played in. His second solo show ‘Nashville Hurricane’ went on to receive the same level of awards and audience numbers. In 2014 Chase was hand picked to perform a sketch comedy showcase for NBC in Los Angeles where he got to work with some of the best comedy talent in the field. When not touring or auditioning in LA he resides in Portland, OR where he can be seen working with the Curious Comedy Theatre as a writer, performer, improviser, and musician. He loves his girlfriend, his dog, and Portland’s insanely good coffee. For real, it’s incredible.
