Chad Zumock
Chad Zumock
The self-proclaimed leader of the Sweater Vest Army burst onto the stand-up comedy scene in Los Angeles in the summer 2004 and hasn’t looked back since. His famous trademark outerwear has gotten him national recognition, and even the public acknowledgement of former Ohio State Buckeyes Football Head Coach, the original member of the Sweater Vest Army, Jim Tressell, himself.

Chad Zumock is a proud 2.4 GPA General Studies graduate of Kent State University, the same University that has produced famous comedians, Arsenio Hall, Steve Harvey, and Drew Carey. He captivates audiences with his high-energy humor, brutal honesty about life, and quick-slacker wit. His likability is what connects him with all kinds of people and makes him a strong draw all over the country.

Zumock’s stand-up comedy has led to appearances on Comedy Central, Gotham Live on AXS TV, Artie Lange Show, BENNINGTON, Spike TV, Cinemax, E!, and numerous low budget-awful commercials. He was even a writer on the 2006 Comedy Central Roast of William Shatner. In 2015, he released his comedy album “Reckless Operation,” which ranked in the Top 20 on iTunes and can be heard on Sirius XM Raw Dog, Slacker, and Pandora Radio.

Chad Zumock: Cleveland Proud

For over three years, Clevelanders knew Zumock as an everyday voice on the legendary 100.7 WMMS, taking the drive-time talk radio show to number one in several key demographics. During the 2012 Cleveland Browns season, he was a correspondent for Tailgate 19, and that same year, he was celebrated by the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers franchise with “Sweater Vest Night.”

His comedy podcast, titled, “The Sit Down Zumock: A Bunch of B.S.Podcast” has a very loyal- cult following. It can be found on iTunes, Stitcher, and www.chadzumock.com

Zumock hopes his stand-up comedy will one day lead him to his dream job, becoming a member of “The Beastie Boys,” replacing the late, great Adam “MCA” Yauch (R.I.P.), or a roadie for Guns N Roses.
