Default Bill Bellamy is the most underrated stand up comic from the past 20 years.




Bill has been killing the game for over 20 years. I think his body of work speaks for itself.

He mad his stand up debut in 1990 on an episode of "Showtime at the Apollo" and left that night with a standing ovation and a career in his back pocket. Around the same time, up and coming comics Dave Chappelle and Jamie Foxx were boo'd off the very stage.

The next year, he was contacted to appear on a new stand up series on HBO, "Def Comedy Jam." He went on to be the first comics to perform, on the first episode of the first season. He performed once more, than hosted the series 2 time in the mid 90s'. Not only that, but he was the first comic to become a star from Def Jam. It wasn't Chris Tucker, Eddie Griffin, Chappelle or any of the Kings of Comedy, it was Bellamy.

Shortly after he was making a names for himself on "Def Comedy Jam" he performed on "The Aresnio Hall Show." His first special was on Showtime in 1994, the highly rated Booty Call.
Bellamy became an MTV VJ starting in 1993 and lasted well into the late 90s on the network. That led him to get many roles on TV and in film. His first film was "Who's The Man." He made his feature starring role in the cult classic "How To Be A Player" in 1997. Other films included "Love Jones" "The Brothers" and "Any Given Sunday." He had a short lived series "The Bill Bellamy Show" in 1996. Fastlane came in 2002.

After MTV, he became a Nickelodeon regular as the voice of Cousin Skeeter, and many appearances on Kenan & Kel. But comedy was always where his heart was.

He hosted and roasted Shaq (who is his cousin) in 2001. In 2005, the comedy central special "Back To My Roots" aired to amazing ratings. The next year, he was the host of two comedy competitions' NBC's Last Comic Standing and TV ONE's Who's Got Jokes.

The past two years, hes been killing the game. He was back on Showtime for the special "Crazy, Sexy, Dirty" late 2012 and last week, his new special premiered "Bill Bellamy's Ladies Night Out" featured him and his three protege's. He was also the host of Centric's Comedy All-Stars.


Give it up for a living legend who's performed with everyone from Bernie Mac to John Lovitz to Damon Wayans to Chris Rock to Jery Seindfield.
