Early life[edit]

After briefly moving to Chicago where he honed his brand of prop comedy, he was tapped as a presenter for the 2002 Comedy Central Roast of Chevy Chase[2]

In 2004, Eaton was in early talks with ESPN2 to act as the sidekick for a late night sports variety show hosted by Scottie Pippen called Just Inside the Arc. ESPN opted to fill the time slot with World Series of Poker reruns.

Eaton was awarded the Don Knotts Memorial Award by the Greater San Bernardino, California, Key Club for his contributions to their 2006 "Suds and Duds" car wash–clothing drive. He is the second recipient of this award.
