Chatman was born in Brooklyn, New York. He is of mixed race, half Euro-American and half African-American. Chatman attended San Francisco State University, from which he graduated in 1994.

In 1996 Chatman began his career as a stand-up comedian and eventually a comedy writer, producer, musician, and television creator. Chatman previously wrote for television shows such as The Chris Rock Show (for which he won an Emmy), Late Night with Conan O'Brien, That's My Bush! and The Downer Channel. Before Wonder Showzen, he and long-time friend and PFFR collaborator John Lee created the Snoop Dogg comedy series Doggy Fizzle Televizzle for MTV.

Along with Lee, he is the co-creator of the MTV2 series Wonder Showzen as well as the Adult Swim shows Xavier: Renegade Angel and The Heart, She Holler. The two met as undergraduates at San Francisco State University. One of his most high-profile voice acting roles is as Towelie, the marijuana-smoking talking towel on South Park, where he also serves as a staff writer. In 2012, he became a producer on the third season of the FX series Louie. In 2017, Adult Swim ordered The Shivering Truth, a "darkly surreal anthology comedy" from Chatman. In January 13 2022, it was announced that he will write an untitled comedy film with involvement from Kendrick Lamar, Dave Free, Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
