Crackers Comedy Broad Ripple Presents Roy Wood Jr.

Crackers Comedy in Broad Ripple is so excited to have Roy Wood Jr. of TBS’s hit sitcom, ‘Sullivan & Son,’ joining us this week from Wednesday though Saturday, Oct 16 – Oct 19. Joining Roy will be feature act Nate Abshire and opener Matt Clemens.

Though he can currently be seen on the TBS sitcom ‘Sullivan & Son,’ Roy’s journey did not start there. Named by Entertainment Weekly as one of 12 comics to watch in 2009, Roy has been featured on the new season of CBS’ THE LATE SHOW w/ David Letterman, HBO’s DEF COMEDY JAM, TV One’s ‘The Funny Spot w/ Tony Rock’, BBC’s THE WORLD STANDS UP- LONDON, CBS’ LATE LATE SHOW w/ Craig Ferguson, NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and Comedy Central’s BOB & TOM COMEDY TOUR. He’s also showcased at the prestigious MONTREAL COMEDY FESTIVAL and is a regular guest on the E! Network’s ‘CHELSEA LATELY’.

Hailing from Birmingham, AL, Roy’s creative writing and dedicated work ethic has since earned him the right to perform his comedy in front of millions of people coast to coast.

The Montreal Gazette called Roy’s 2006 festival performance on the ‘New Faces’ show “tremendous” and the Hollywood Reporter called Roy a “standout”. Roy has also appeared on ‘COMEDY CENTRAL’S PREMIUM BLEND’, BET’s COMIC VIEW, CBS’ STAR SEARCH (2003) , ‘IT’S SHOWTIME AT THE APOLLO’ and LIVE IN HOLLYWOOD w/ KIKI SHEPPARD’.

Steering clear of predictable topics and premises, Roy delivers comedy that gives an honest look at not only his life, but the world in which we live. The universal appeal of his comedy crosses all race and cultural lines which is why he has opened for an array of comedians ranging from D.L. Hughley, Ron White, Monique, Tommy Davidson, Bill Engvall, and Katt Williams.

A two-time nominee for APCA’s title of ‘Comedian of the Year,’ Roy works numerous college and university appearances into his schedule every year as well. Roy has also carved a niche for himself in the world of radio.

After graduating from Florida A&M University in 2001 he served as head writer and producer of the Buckwilde Morning Show WBHJ 95.7 JAMZ– Birmingham, AL until 2007. He has since returned to that very same station to host his own morning show ‘The Roy Wood Jr Show: Good Morning.’ He is also a regular guest on the ‘Bob & Tom Radio Show, a syndicated morning show heard by more than six million people every morning. His hilarious prank phone calls are also carried in almost 50 different radio markets including stations in Canada and England. In addition to terrestrial radio, his prank calls are a main stay on Jaime Foxx’s ‘Foxxhole Station’ on SIRIUS Satellite Radio. These same prank calls have been compiled into three nationally released CD’s. 2003′s ‘MY MOMMA MADE ME WEAR THIS’ , 2005′s ‘CONFESSIONS OF A HIGH SCHOOL BENCH WARMER’ and his newest CD, “I’LL SLAP YOU TO SLEEP.”

Check him out when he was here last year and then snatch up your tickets as soon as you can. It’s going to be a heckuva week.
