RICH WILLIAMS OFFICIAL BIO
As a kid, all Rich ever wanted to be was a platinum selling singer/songwriter. After releasing an R&B album that went “wood in the hood,” (his Mom and 3 of his friends bought copies) Rich parlayed his innate sense of humor into a career in comedy. Rich made his mark in Houston by hosting events alongside a number of celebrities including Gabrielle Union (Bad Boys II) Tyrese Gibson (Transformers), Cedric The Entertainer (Kings of Comedy), Michael Jai White (The Dark Knight), Red Grant (Katt Williams’ “American Hustle”), and Tony Rock (“The Tony Rock Project”). He has appeared in myriad World Renowned venues including the Hollywood and Houston Improv, the Venetian Hotel in Vegas, and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. His first standup DVD “Demotape” has sold thousands of copies, and with his 2nd standup DVD in the works, Rich is taking the comedy world by storm!
This smoky, joke slinging rabble rouser has been delighting audiences for years with his high energy and eclectic take on this weird world we live in.
His comedy career began as just another way for the long-time theater nerd to get his stage fix, but he soon found that stand-up was his greatest passion and only actual skill.
With his love for animals and mediocre editing prowess, you can see Clay any time on his YouTube series: The Zoo Review.
Clay can be found on the comedy club circuit working as a feature at Laughs Unlimited in Sacramento, the Tacoma and Spokane Comedy Clubs, and Seattle Comedy Underground (RIP). You’ll also find him hosting at Punch Line and Cobbs in San Francisco, San Jose Improv, Rooster T Feathers in Sunnyvale, and Punch Line Sacramento, as well as showcases at Flappers in Burbank. He’s recently been seen opening for Eric Andre, Kelsey Cook, Shane Torres, Andrew Santino, Ismo, Aida Rodriguez, Sam Tripoli, Andy Woodhull, and Sheng Wang.
