He is the son of Edward Tinsley Chase, a writer and editor and Cathalene Crane Chase, a concert pianist. His parents divorced when he was nine.

He moved to Los Angeles that year where he wrote TV material for Alan King and the Smothers Brothers, winning a Writers Guild award. In 1975 he began writing and acting for the hit "Saturday Night Live." After a year he felt burned out and returned to Hollywood to marry Jacqueline Carlin who refused to relocate to the East Coast. He starred in a series of comedy movies and threw himself into his work.
Chase had a first marriage he refuses to talk about. Chase married Jacqueline Carlin 12/04/1976, a model and aspiring actress. They had an unpleasant divorce in 1980.
