Roy Wood Jr.

The Hollywood Reporter called him “A Standout”, and Entertainment Weekly described it as “charismatic­crankiness”. The thought-provoking comedy of Roy Wood Jr. crosses cultural lines and has entertained­millions nationwide by stage, radio and television. Wood currently appears in the TBS‘ hit comedy, “Sullivan­and Son,” guest-starring as the likable sidekick and best friend of bar owner Steve Byrne, who returns to­Pittsburgh to run his parent’s local pub.

Wood, a native of Birmingham, Alabama, began his comedy career in 1999 at the age of 19 while attending Florida A&M University. ­In 2002, Wood earned a slot as one of 10 national finalists in Comedy Central’s “Laugh Riots” competition in Los Angeles. Roy was­selected for “Star Search” on CBS where he advanced to the semi-finals. He also appeared on “It’s Showtime at the Apollo,”­“Live in Hollywood” and Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and BET’s “Comic View.”

Wood appeared at the 2006 “Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival” in the “New­Faces Showcase” where critics awarded him top honors. The Montreal Gazette said, “Roy­Wood Jr. gives tremendous show” taking “the top spot”. He’s also featured on the “Bob­and Tom Radio Show: The Comedy Tour” a one-hour special, which aired on Comedy­Central. You’ve also seen Roy on “The Late, Late Show “ w/Ferguson and BBC America’s “The World Stands Up“ in London.

In October 2006 Wood made his network television debut on “Late Night with David Letterman.” In 2008, Wood appeared on­HBO’s historic “Def Comedy Jam.” He was also selected by America as one of the top three finalists on “Last Comic Standing” and­followed that up with the first of numerous appearances on “CONAN.”

Wood has recorded three nationally-released prank call CD’s: “My Momma­Made Me Wear This” (2003), “Confessions of a High School Bench Warmer“ (2005) and “I’ll Slap You to Sleep!” (2009). And has recently released his­first comedy CD “Things I think, I think” (2013).
