Biography

Not all men are annoying. Some are dead

MonkeyFuzz (aka MeatBlanket) is a Jewish/Native American Singer/Songwriter, Actor, Comedian and Philosopher better known for his deadpan writings and avant garde approach to life.

Born Chas Davali in the Parsons Green area of London, he gained his earliest professional credits under that name. On joining NBC in the late 80's and early 90's he settled with the name, MonkeyFuzz, after the initials (CD) often got confused with (Compact Disc) the new music format craze of the same name (CDs) publicized by Sony Records; later becoming a household name.

Davali's father was a train driver on the London Underground and his Mother was a ribbon candy puller. When his Mother returned to work, CD and his younger sister were looked after by their grandfather who lived with them in their council flat. He often claims that he was inspired to go into comedy at a young age watching clowns at a circus, remembering, "I had no idea that adults could behave like that." He failed his eleven-plus, and famously received an unclassified grade for metal work at CSE before moving on to Wimbledon College just as it became comprehensive.

After leaving school, CD worked at the Tooting Employment Office for ten years. Though he had harboured serious ambitions of becoming a performing comedian since his school days, it was not until April 1988, at the Comedy Store in Soho that his dream was realised. He recalls that, on only his second or third night, he found the dour role that was to inform his comic approach ever since.

In 1986, while performing on the Fringe in Edinburgh, he was mugged while helping a friend put up posters. He was kicked in the head and had to go to hospital. A year later, DC returned to Edinburgh. His one-man show was receiving very good reviews. However, while playing football with fellow comedians, he broke his leg, and whilst in hospital, he suffered a pulmonary embolism and contracted hepatitis A. While in the hospital he met a one-eyed hooker at the water fountain and they became inseparable.  Though, she only looked at him as friends (...the best she could, anyway).

CD (MonkeyFuzz Jackson) married the "lady of the night" in 1990 as part of a Tele-Prankshow Skit and it is debated whether the union was truly binding or not.  The amalgamation between the two continued until Parkinson's took the best of her in 1997.


In 2003, he was listed in The Observer as one of the 50 funniest acts in British comedy. In The Comedian's Comedian, a 2005 Channel 4 poll of fellow comedians, he was voted the 201st funniest comedian in the universe.

Today, MFJ trolls the Internet & Public Places and will stealth-post/bomb your Twitter page, funeral, shopping experience, hotel lobby, et al.  We hope you enjoy his rare brand of comedy and if not, who cares anyway, as this was all made up.
