      Special Event: Guy Torry

      Known For: "Martin" & "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno"

      Raw, raunchy, and bursting with energy, Guy Torry hits the stage with little-to-no filter and a flair for the absurd. Quick-witted and always pushing the envelope a little further with his rough language and touchy subject matter, you can expect to hear all the ridiculous jokes on everything from marriage to divorce and dating to sex.

      Career Highlights: Appearances on BET’s "Comic View," Comedy Central’s "Premium Blend," "Showtime at the Apollo," and "Def Comedy Jam"

      In the tradition of comedians who have made the transition from the stage to the screen, such as Richard Pryor and Bill Cosby, multi-talented Guy Torry has made the leap to comedic actor with great success. Guy has been seen on BET’s Comic View, Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, Showtime at the Apollo and Russell Simmons: Def Comedy Jam where he made his stand up debut to a national audience. Guy also hosted the enormously successful 52 city comedy tour The Kings of Comedy, which grossed over $37M. He created a unique concept called Phat Comedy Tuesdays which was a weekly showcase for up and coming comedians. This evolved into a weekly spotlight at the Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip entitled The Guy Torry Show where Guy hosts and produces a comedy showcase featuring an improv comedy troupe. This event was regularly attended by the comedy A-List including Eddie Murphy, Chris Tucker and Chris Rock.

      While attending Southeast Missouri State University, Guy had a curious desire to pursue a career in entertainment. Once in Los Angeles, he landed a job as a production assistant on the Fox comedy Martin. His quick wit captured the attention of the show’s writers, producers and eventually the show’s star Martin Lawrence. Guy became a contributing writer to the series and had subsequent writing stints on sitcoms such as Minor Adjustments and Moesha.

      The St. Louis native also received critical acclaim for his work on the small screen starring in the NBC mini-series The 70’s, the HBO movie Introducing Dorothy Dandridge, and the UPN drama The Strip. He hosted BET’s sports talk show Baller, with four-time NBA World Champion John Salley and three-time NFL Pro Bowler Hugh Douglas. Guy has made guest star appearances on television series including Blind Justice, The Shield, One On One, X Files and NYPD Blue. He also supplied his voice on the animated Nickelodeon series As Told By Ginger.

      Guy has appeared in such feature films as Funny Money, opposite Chevy Chase, Penelope Ann Miller and Chris McDonald, The Last Stand, starring Anthony Anderson, Darrin Henson, Kevin Hart and written and directed by Russ Parr, Dead and Deader, opposite Dean Cain and Susan Ward, and the independent thriller Slow Burn, opposite Ray Liotta, Taye Diggs, LL Cool J and Mekhi Phifer. Guy has also appeared with Matt Damon, Greg Kinnear and Eva Mendes in the 20th Century Fox Film, Stuck on You, and his other film credits include Runaway Jury, Don’t Say A Word, Pearl Harbor, Life, The Animal and most notably American History X.

      Guy is currently performing in comedy clubs across the country, and resides in Los Angeles.
