This week, Chad Daniels is going for somewhat of a comedy hat trick. Today marks the release of his all-new hour-long special As Is as well as his CD You’re the Best. Chad will also be performing on Conan tonight. He’s debuting his hour-long special with Laughspin and it looks great. You can watch Chad’s full, uncensored special below, after the jump. Let us know what you think!
