Sam Fels was born and raised on the North Side of Chicago. He's been a die hard Cubs and Hawks fan all his life, which probably explains why he's warped in the head. He also grew up in Chicago rooting against Michael Jordan for reasons only known to him, which is why that warped head is irreparable. It also explains his cynical view. He graduated from Emerson College in 2003 with a degree he no longer can find or remember what is was for. He has been a stand-up comedian since 2004, and there might even be five people in Chicago who can recall seeing him on stage. He moved back home from LA in 2008 to relaunch the independent Blackhawks fanzine The Blue Line, renaming it The Committed Indian. He joined Second City Hockey in November of that year, and has been wasting his and the time of others ever since.
