Italian-American, with roots in Agrigento, Sicily.
Is a frequent caller to WFAN sports radio in New York.
Began as a long-haired lead singer for a band called "Razzamachazz."
Although "A Bronx Tale" was his first play, he had written skits for a comedy troupe for about four or five years prior to that.
He was initially offered $250,000, then a seven-figure amount, for the film rights to his play "A Bronx Tale," but he refused to sell out, insisting that he write the screenplay and play the lead, which he did (A Bronx Tale (1993)).
Chazz used to bounce at The LimeLight in New York City.
[re his Bronx childhood] The big guys used to beat up the little guys, and the little guys used to beat up the real little guys. If you were a little guy, you'd become a big guy and then beat up the little guys underneath you. Kids now, all they do is sit down and play Facebook. I was on the stoop, and I saw a man kill another man right in front of me. People go, 'You must have been traumatized!' I really wasn't. I just saw this guy kill a guy, and my father dragged me upstairs, we talked about it, I didn't rat on the guy, and that was it.
I think the lessons I learned growing up in the streets in the Bronx were never tip your hand too soon. Always keep your cards close to the vest.
I speak as much as I can about the working man in the Italian-American community. It's the working man who makes up the heart of the community. The Italian-Americans I play are mobsters who have a heart or a positive element.
