Chip Pope is an accomplished comedian-actor-writer who also enjoys pancakes. He was one of the stars and writers for MTV�s �Austin Stories�, a television show that was acclaimed by the New York Times, USA Today, and TV Guide; although a dude who writes reviews for the Orlando Sentinel didn�t much like it. Chip has performed stand-up on NBC�s �Late Friday� and Comedy Central�s �Premium Blend�, which his parents didn�t watch. He�s appeared in the films �Clockstoppers� and �Simone�, opposite Al Pacino, a lauded actor whose breath actually smells fine. He was cut out of the Jim Carrey movie �Man On The Moon.� Snippety-Snip. Chip�s written, produced, and starred in TV pilots for HBO, ABC, FOX, Comedy Central, and NBC (who recently killed their 8PM programming. Yay!) He will record a split CD with comedian and raconteur Howard Kremer. It will be released sometime in the future. Assuming there is one. He most recently wrapped a stint as a panelist on VH-1�s �SuperSecret Movie Rules.� You didn�t see it. He appeared in a pilot this fall for the G4 network, which someone must watch. (The network, not the pilot.) He also performs as legendary British 80�s new waver R.O. Manse. www.myspace.com/romanse He lives in Los Angeles, where there�s gold in them thar hills.
fearless, high energy and crazy, chip is someone who i hope to see more of at the live shows. he was maybe a bit too quick to self depricate when the audience didn't immediately respond. i just think they needed a second to breathe.
