about zack


Zack Chapaloni’s first performance was a solo rendition of “I’ve Been Workin' on the Railroad” in the 3rd grade. He killed. And though there wasn’t a dry eye nor dry pair of pants in the house, Zack craved something more. Nine years later, he performed impressions of teachers at his High School Pasta Dinner. Again, the crowd was completely drenched in liquid remnants of overwhelming astonishment (some say it was the pasta). Three years later, he tried stand up. I’ll give you one guess; Friggin’ obliterated. Then he left home to grow weed with his father... turned out Zack wasn’t great at everything. So he returned to San Francisco to pursue stand up and to go to college so his mom would stop crying.


Since then, Zack has been a semi-finalist in the TBS National Comedy Competition, the San Diego Comedy Competition and runner-up in the Central Valley Comedy Competition. He has established himself as a prominent comedian in the Bay Area, performing regularly at San Francisco’s Punchline and Cobb’s Comedy Club. Zack co-wrote and starred as “Todd Olsen” in the Metacafe series “PausePlay”. He also appeared on season 2 of MTV's "Greatest Party Story Ever". Zack has opened for well-known comedians such as Norm Macdonald, Dave Attell, Jay Pharoah and Chris Hardwick.
