Bill Bellamy

September 10, 2009 His career is on the rise, yet his feet remain firmly planted on the ground. Over the last decade Bellamy has been a staple in the world of comedy, performing hundreds of shows to sold-out audiences across the country. For the past two seasons, Bill has brought his humor and comedic expertise to NBC as host of the hit comedy competition series "Last Comic Standing" which aired its sixth season last summer. In addition, Bellamy also hosts the TV One network series, "Bill Bellamy's Who's Got Jokes?" which airs its new season this October 10th. Premiering in the fall of 2006, the show searches the nation for the hottest rising comics who will compete to be crowned "Jokes" champion. The unique twist is that the comics must keep it clean or be docked points for swearing and raunchiness. Bellamy also headlined the 2006 season of "Def Comedy Jam," back on HBO after a nine-year hiatus.

In September 2005, he released his debut comedy DVD "Bill Bellamy: Back To My Roots" from UrbanWorks Entertainment's prestigious Platinum Comedy Series. The DVD showcases Bill's unique brand of "in your face" comedy with his hilarious perspective on dating, politics and the overall state of America. In addition, his DVD aired as a one-hour special on Comedy Central last October. More information on Bill can be found on his website
