Big Dumb Show Flashback 69: Bert “Chili” Challis

Chili was cool enough to hang out with us a few times; this time was August 15, 2002, and he shared some fun riffs on drinking, driving (not together!), and the Amish.

He was a thirty year comedy veteran, and for a time, a staff writer for the Tonight show with Jay Leno, who dubbed him “Chili”. He was a teacher and mentor for budding comedians around the world, and famous for his comedy do-jo workshop.

Chili left the planet on October 9, 2018 after a sudden illness. It is a pleasure to remember him for a few moments here.
