 Guy Torry Biography

In the tradition of comedians who have made the transition from the stage to the screen, such as Richard Pryor and Bill Cosby, multi-talented Guy Torry has made the leap to comedic actor with great success. Guy Torry moved to Los Angeles, CA to join his two older brothers, famed comedian/actor Joe Torry, and now US Army Lt. Colonel Ramon Torry in 1992. Actually moving to Southern California to finish his education in pursuing a degree in marketing. After moving there and being inspired by HBO's "Russell Simmons Def Comedy Jam," Guy decided that's the career path he should take.

Guy started hitting the comedy pavement, performing at comedy clubs in Los Angeles, sometimes going up three or four times a night. Focused and dedicated to stand up, Guy won his first comedy competition while competing with seasoned pros after only six months of doing comedy.

That gave him the confidence to continue to pursue a career in the field of stand up comedy. After only a year and a half in the game, Guy had a chance to audition for the very show inspired him to try stand up. After careful consideration, Guy along with his brother Joe decided that maybe a little more time was needed to hone the craft and try out the next season. That proved to be golden. Martin Lawrence, the show's host, stepped down, and Guy's brother Joe was named as the new host. Bob Sumner, the show's talent coordinator, gave Guy the green light for his stand up television debut.

Guy went on to join the national Def Comedy Jam Tour and play to sold out theatres around the country. He continued to perfect his craft while not on the DCJ tour in local clubs and other comedy clubs around the country. After securing a manager and agent, Guy started booking acting jobs, which raised his global profile.

In 1995, after seeing a lack of industry coming down to the urban neighborhoods to scout some of the other black comedians, Guy created Phat Comedy Tuesdays at the world famous Comedy Store. Guy wanted to bring the "hood" to Holly"wood" to showcase some of LA's up-and-coming black talent. The show was a hit and lasted for 10 years. The name was later changed to "The Guy Torry Comedy Show" because of all of the other clones around the country.

During this time, Guy has toured the country and abroad displaying his brand of comedy and bringing laughs to everyone. All of this attracted the attention of "The Kings of Comedy" creator Walter Latham, who hired Guy to host the tour. The tour did 52 dates with Guy as the host, along with other veteran comedians, Cedric The Entertainer, the late Bernie Mac and Steve Harvey. After a year of touring, Guy decided to leave the show to pound the comedy pavement again and work on his craft. He also booked a one-hour action/drama show on the now defunct television network UPN that wouldn't allow him to tour.

He now tours the country, hitting comedy clubs and theatres, working on a comedy album and putting together the right set for a comedy special.
