While on a standup comedy tour in 2014, Morgan was critically injured in a serious car accident that prevented the comedian from continuing to work and tour.

Kountry Wayne

Raw, real and wickedly-hilarious, “Kountry” Wayne Colley’s microformat digital videos have catapulted him from life in small town Georgia to mega social media superstar and comedy sensation, selling out clubs and theaters across America.

Kountry Wayne

Since his first Facebook post in October 2014 went viral, the charismatic comic has amassed millions of followers across Facebook and Instagram, generating an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers within the entertainment industry for being one of the funniest emerging performers to hit the comedy scene.

Kountry Wayne

Keeping it real, mining comic gold from the everyday and applying his genius for freestyling, Wayne is a master comic storyteller. In 2017 Wayne embarked on a the 150-date national “Child Support Tour” throughout the U.S. That wasn’t just a clever moniker – he’s the dad of nine kids and even as he builds his own entertainment legacy, he’s all about securing the future for them.

“My hashtag, my mantra, is ‘Help is On The Way!’ – that’s my slogan, I own it, because I believe God’s got my back and your back and whatever is stressing you out today, it won’t last because help is truly on the way,” says Wayne, whose endearingly funny way with English comes from growing up “Kountry” in Millen, GA (pop. 3500), between Statesboro and Augusta.

He was given what became his stage name during a stint living and going to school in Savannah in the mid-2000s. In January 2020, Wayne began his “The People’s Champ” North American tour, travelling to cities across the U.S. and Canada including Miami, Pittsburgh, West Palm Beach, Phoenix and more.

In addition to his comedy tour, Wayne performed alongside comedy heavyweight, Mike Epps, along with an all-star lineup, on the “The Fabulously Funny Comedy Festival” arena tour, in major cities such as Los Angeles, Detroit, Miami, Chicago, New York, Houston, Nashville, Atlanta and Dallas, to name a few.

With his humble roots and unbridled energy, Wayne continues to build his audience with cutting edge yet clean, curse free material whose appeal transcends all cultural lines and is fit for (and often draws) the whole family. All while still posting content online daily.

Shuler King Comedian-Funeral Director

The influence of his parents as well as his harsh surroundings gave him his own perspective on his life, his country, and the troubles of his people. The style of the young comedian is RAW, plain and simple. “I give it to the audience the same way life gives it to me. I pull no punches on stage, that is what I am most comfortable with and the people love it.”

“People think comedy is about just being happy, comedy is more about pain than anything else. You can see 20,000 people in one place laugh at the same joke because they have the same pain.”

Shuler King aka Frank Williams III

Throughout his youth Shuler King was known as the one with all the jokes, despite all of his personal obstacles. Growing up, he and his siblings were exposed to domestic violence and drug abuse. By the time he was in middle school most on his friends sold drugs. At age 15 Shuler King had joined them. “I wanted to make my own money and feel like my own man, and at that time it felt ok.” As time went on he started to feel different about what he was doing, and slowly he departed from it.

Coming out of high school he never wanted to go to college, because he felt he wouldn’t get accepted anywhere. ” I was smart, but I never applied it in school. The curriculum was boring to me, because I felt that it was useless to everyday life.” Shuler attended Sumter High School were his mother, Mrs. Williams teaches English. His mother was the reason that he filled out a collage application at all. To the surprise of many he ended up attending and graduating from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Media Arts in 2007. During his attendance he joined the Mighty Illustrious Zeta Zeta Chapter of Omega Psi Phi in the Spring of 2007.

Regardless of any experiences that Shuler King has had or will have in his life, one thing that has always been concrete is his gift of comedy. On April 14, 2004, when he was just 19 years old he decided to take the stage at the NCO Club at Shaw Air Force Base. The Acts that night were Big Kenny, Barbra Carlyle and Sugar Bear. That night was proof that Shuler King could do just what he thought he could. Ever since then he has been stirring up a fuss at the comedy clubs around him. He has made appearances at the Comedy House Theater in Columbia, SC, The Uptown Comedy Corner in Atlanta, GA, Billy D’s in Columbia, SC, Fat Katts in Hinesville, GA, Club 118 in Sumter, SC, NCO Club in Sumter, SC, Omega Psi Phi Frat House Comedy Night in Charlotte NC, Club Rolex in Greenville, SC, The University of South Carolina in Columbia SC, and is now permanently booked for the Capital City Ques All Black and All White Affair at the South Carolina State Museum in Columbia, SC.

“When I’m on stage I feel more alive than at any other time. I belong on stage, and I belong in comedy. With every performance I feel the spirit of God working through me.”
