What is Chico Bean’s real name?
Anthony Jamal ‘Chico’ Bean was born in Washington, DC, USA, on 20 February 1987 – his zodiac sign is Pisces and he holds American nationality; it was his uncle who nicknamed him ‘Chico’.
He is a stand-up comedian and an occasional actor, who might be known best for his appearances in the comedy show “Wild ‘N Out”, which has been airing since 2005 and was created by Nick Cannon, who is also the show’s host – it won Nick two Teen Choice Award nominations for Choice TV: Personality in 2006 and 2007.

Early life and education
Chico was raised in Washington, DC as an only child by his mother, as his father was killed in the streets when Chico was only two years old. His mother worked multiple jobs to financially support herself and Chico, but life wasn’t easy as the two also lost six family members, all of whom were involved with street gangs.
Chico obviously grew-up in a rough neighborhood, but after some of the people closest to him were killed, he shied away from the same path as them, to focus on his education and comedy. He began doing comedy while attending high school, and after matriculation in 2004, Chico enrolled at a college in North Carolina, from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2008. It was in Greensboro when he performed in the show Fresh Faces of Comedy Stand-Up, and was noticed by Nick Cannon, who then helped launch his career as a stand-up comedian.
Career as a comedian and TV personality
In 2013, Chico made his debut film appearance when he portrayed one of the lead characters in the comedy “Wild ‘N Out: Wildest Moments”, directed by Tony Ducret, and which also starred Anthony Bean and Nick Cannon – in the same year, he appeared in a single episode of the comedy series “Guy Court”.
2014 saw Chico appear in an episode of the news talk show “HuffPost Live Conversations”, hosted by Ricky Camilleri and Marc Lamont Hill, and in 2016, he was invited to appear in both the talk show “Uncommon Sense with Charlamagne”, and the TV special “MTV’s Epic Fails of 2016”.
He could’ve been seen playing the lead character in four episodes of the reality TV series “Wild ‘N on Tour”, and in 2017 Chico appeared in the talk show “Steve Harvey”. He also competed in two episodes of the game show “Trivial Takedown”, winning once, and his most recent appearance has been in a 2019 episode of the talk show “Sister Circle”. He has recently been invited to co-host the event BET Hip-Hop Awards, and so appear in the eponymous TV special.
He is very active on Instagram as he has gathered nearly two million followers, while he has uploaded more than 3,200 pictures onto it, most of which have been taken during his everyday life. He’s been active on Twitter too since February 2010, and has gathered close to 300,000 followers.
Love life and wife
Chico is very secretive when it comes to his love life, and hasn’t talked about any women he might have dated. It was believed by many that he’s gay but after it was revealed that Chico has a daughter, the same people are now considering the possibility of Chico being bisexual.
Chico’s daughter, Pierce Chanel was born in 2009 but he hasn’t talked about her mother in public, and its believed that it was only a short relationship of several months, and because the woman is allegedly poor, Pierce is mostly being raised by Chico. It’s believed by some that Pierce’s mother is actually Chico’s wife.
He hasn’t talked about anyone he might be seeing today, and as of October 2020, Chico is offivcially single and hasn’t married, and has one daughter.
