  • Chevy Chase

    Full Episode

    S 25 : Ep 29 - 12/9/12

    He was the breakout star of Saturday Night Live, winning over audiences with his cool, laidback persona and razor sharp wit. He went on to star in some of the biggest comedy hits of the 80's--including Caddyshack, National Lampoon's Vacation, and Fletch. But unbeknownst to critics and fans, Chevy was waging a very personal battle to come to grips with his difficult childhood. This is the story of the two sides of Chevy--a comedy god who scaled Nielsen ratings and box office charts, and a lonely and abused little boy who grew up to be a role model for his children and a consummate family man. Simply put, you can't peg him down--he's Chevy Chase--and we're not.moreless
