From his early start hosting high school talent shows, to his honorable stint in the United States Armed Forces, “LAV LUV” has always know that his destiny was on stage, making people laugh. LAV made his way to “open mic night” at Atlanta’s Uptown Comedy Corner, and has been on a whirlwind roll with comedy ever since. He is now one of the four permanent hosts at Uptown Comedy Corner which has showcased for hosts Corey “ZOOMAN” Miller, Earthquake, Chris Tucker, and Don “DC” Curry. “He is one of the best dressed comedians tour right now…” comments radio personality Sexy Wanda Smith of the WVEE 103 FM (Atlanta) morning show. With his suave looks and debonair, no holds barred approach to the stage, LAV has become one of today’s hottest young comedy commodities. His performances on three (3) seasons of Black Entertainment Television’s “COMIC VIEW” still has viewers laughing.
“Lav is a constant professional”, comments Roosevelt Johnson promoter of the RJE Urban Comedy Cabaret Tour, “He is a mixture of Chris Rock and D. L. Hughley. If he was in California at Seven O’clock and we had a concert at Eight O’ clock in Atlanta, Lav would make the concert and would take over the crowd. Lav is one of the few comedians that I can say I have a beautiful personal and professional relationship with. We have never, ever had a problem with one another…”.
Lav is a true student of the art of professional stand up comedy and is a very diverse comedian with jokes dealing with socioeconomic/ politically correct issues to the ambiance of normal relationships and racially provoking thoughts. He consistently polishes his act and has expanded his talents to improvisation.
