Staying busy is not a problem for Bill Bellamy, whose flourishing career encompasses the worlds of feature film, television, comedy and more. His career is on the rise, yet his feet remain firmly planted on the ground. He can currently be seen in the urban comedy "The Lottery Ticket" with Bow Wow, Ice Cube and Brandon T. Jackson. Directed by Erik White, the story revolves around a young man (Bow Wow) living in the projects who wins $370 million in the lottery. He must survive a three-day holiday weekend, when his opportunistic neighbors discover he still has the winning ticket in his possession, before he can claim his winnings. The film will be released on August 20th. Bill is currently in production on Tyler Perry's TBS series "Meet The Browns" where he will guest-star on several episodes this season.

Bellamy made his feature film debut in the spring of 1997, opposite Nia Long and Larenz Tate in the critically acclaimed romantic comedy LOVE JONES for New Line Cinema. He successfully followed that with his leading man debut in the hit comedy, Def Jam's HOW TO BE A PLAYER for Gramercy Pictures in the summer of 1997.

Bellamy also starred as the voice of Skeeter in Nickelodeon's hit action-comedy series Cousin Skeeter. He was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for his outstanding performance on the show.

Bellamy continues to keep his comedy chops sharp with regular stand-up appearances at comedy clubs and arenas across the country. His intelligence and infectious humor landed the comedian a guest-correspondent stint on Entertainment Tonight.

Also appearing on this show will be the Who's Got Jokes Allstars: D'Lai, J Reid, and Ali.

Bill will be bringing his national "Ladies Night Out" tour to the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, IN this Friday, September 10th
