Chad Opitz
Chad Opitz
Chad Opitz is a comic whose unique takes on often times odd subject matters are making him an oft booked staple at Bay Area clubs and showcases. Chad was the winner of Bay Area legend Jimmy Gunn's "Best Newcomer" award, 2nd place finalist at the 2016 Sacramento Comedy and 1st place winner of the Walk the Plank comedy competition. Veering between one-liners, short story jokes and sometimes even song, Opitz' writing is as well-regarded as his character and performance work. He's opened for Neil Hamburger, Gad Elmaleh, Scott Thompson and Michelle Wolf.
