| LIL REL
"I got a ‘70‘s Father‘. Every time he talks he points, bends down, and steps back ...and still uses 70‘s terms like turkey."|
“Get married when you can afford it. The worst wedding reception I‘ve been too was in the gym.“|
“You can always tell how bad a high school is by the valedictorian‘s speech - “we did it, yep we did it. This was long six years for me.“|
|Just when you think you‘ve heard every joke about families there is, along comes Lil Rel Howery with a family so funny they should have their own sit-com. With an explosive style and keen ability to make real-life characters come to life, he‘s one of the most exciting new comics on the scene.|
On his New Wave Dynamics‘ album, I KNOW YOU HEAR ME, BUT ARE YOU LISTENING? (a phrase coined by his Uncle Jimmy), we get to meet his cigarette smoking, tough, lovable Mother, his 1970‘s Father, snuff-addled Grandma, and of course, Uncle Jimmy.
As Lil Rel‘s comedy moves from home to the streets, he shares his hilarious encounters about Hoodrats, Riding the Bus, Man Toy Parties, and a Bad Obituary Reading.
The Chicago native was recently cast for the FOX Television re-boot of In Living Color and was named one of Daily Variety‘s “10 Comics to Watch“ 2012.
Howery, who excels at character comedy, has gained a high amount of recognition over the past couple of years as he has appeared on numerous stand-up television shows highlighted by performances on NBC‘s Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central‘s Russell Simmons Presents and Starz Martin Lawrence 1st Amendment Stand-Up.
Last year he also performed at Chicago‘s Just For Laugh‘s “New Faces Show“ and “Bad Boys of Comedy.“
He co-starred in the indie comedy feature “Get A Job,“ and has appeared on Sean “Diddy“ Combs HBO series “Bad Boys of Comedy II,“ “BET‘s “Comicview,“ and TV One Bill Bellamy‘s “Who‘s Got Jokes?“ He released his own DVD “The Lil Rel Show“ volume one in 2007.
His inspirations are some of the greats such as Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, but Lil Rel continues to create his own lane with his original brand of comedy. With his roots being in Chicago, he commits himself to being House MC at Jokes and Notes comedy club where he hosts shows every Friday and Saturday.
