Guy Torry: June 6-8

A native of St. Louis, Guy Torry moved to L.A. in pursuit of an entertainment career. He premiered his stand-up talent nationally on Russell Simmons’ hit “Def Comedy Jam.” His success quickly resulted in a return appearance which parlayed the young comic into a staff writer for the HBO late night show and eventually a spot on the “Def Comedy Jam” national tour for three seasons. Guy’s resume includes writing credits for “Martin,” “Minor Adjustments,” and “Moesha,” among others. He also appeared at HBO’s 1997 Aspen Comedy Festival which he continues to receive critical and industrial acclaim. Torry created and produced “Phat Tuesday,” as a weekly showcase for upcoming comedians. Always working to refine his own craft, Guy can regularly be seen performing at comedy clubs around the country while aspiring to become a positive role model and an inspiration for people from all walks of life.
