Bruce’s comedy can actually be traced back to when he was working as a chef directly out of high school. He would entertain his customers with his humor while cooking up mean BBQ dishes. Bruce also worked as a Frito-Lays salesman and did everything from shelf placement to performing his comedy sets during their corporate meetings. Eventually, Bruce brought his comedy routine to the Comedy Act Theater in Atlanta and was an instant hit. When BET’s Coast to Coast came to town searching for new and talented stand-up comedians, Bruce would pursue the opportunity to appear on the show and would incessantly audition at each club in the area. Ultimately, he appeared on the show three times. In 1993, Bruce made his first appearance on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam; followed quickly by an impressive appearance on the Showtime at the Apollo hosted by Steve Harvey in 1994. Bruce was asked back to the Apollo two more time in 1995. His career skyrocketed from there. After receiving the highest ratings ever as the Host of “BET’s 10th Anniversary Comic View” for two seasons, Bruce returned to the BET family as the two-time host “Coming to the Stage.” Bruce went on to star in his own “Comedy Central Presents” special which he followed with a release of his one-hour comedy special DVD “Bruce Bruce Live”(2003) and more recently on “Losin’ It” (Showtime 2011). On the big screen, Bruce has created crazy characters like the “Lime Pimp” in Hair Show starring Mo ‘Nique, and “Dewayne” the lovable security guard in The Wash starring Snoop Dog and Dr Dre. He also appeared in Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector, XXX: State of the Union and as the memorable “Golf Ball Eddie” in Who’s Your Caddy. Bruce’s bigger than life personality has transcended his personality onto the music video scene as well. He has made guest appearances in videos with Ludacris and the Ying Yang Twins (after being named in their hit song “Salt Shaker”). He appeared in the monstrous 1996 summer hit “Come On Ride the Train (Ride It)” by Quad City DJs and can also be seen in Outkast’s music video “So Fresh, So Clean.” Most recently, Bruce appears with Anthony Anderson in the KEM music video, “You’re On My Mind.”
