Using his experiences growing up in Newark, Bill Bellamy started doing stand-up while he was a student at Rutgers University. Bellamy quickly discovered how much he enjoyed making people laugh, and began honing his skills at small comedy clubs around the country and was soon making waves in the New York clubs like The Improv, The Comic Strip, and at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles.
Two short years later, Bellamy earned a spot on HBO’s DEF COMEDY JAM where he notoriously coined the phrase “Booty Call.” Bill has appeared on recurring episodes of Tyler Perry’s MEET THE BROWNS on TBS and has also guest-starred on ABC’s CASTLE, USA’s ROYAL PAINS, USA’s WHITE COLLAR & TNT’s MURDER IN THE FIRST. Previously, Bill hosted four seasons of the TV One comedy competition show WHO’S GOT JOKES? and two seasons of NBC’s Emmy Nominated LAST COMIC STANDING.
In December of 2016, Bill co-starred with Shemar Moore & Nadine Velazquez in the romantic-comedy THE BOUNCE BACK.
In 2017, he joined the Tom Joyner Morning Show as a co-host every Wednesday morning.
Bellamy resides with his wife and two children in Los Angeles.
