From The Newton Theatre:
Pound for pound, Brad Williams is the funniest comedian in the country right now, and has become one of the most in-demand comedians working today. He takes the stage March 15 at 8 p.m.
A California native, Williams started doing stand-up comedy as a teenager and has been touring successfully ever since, routinely selling out shows all over the country and the world.
Williams has appeared on numerous TV shows and feature films including Legit, Mind of Mencia, Sam and Cat, Pitboss, Dave Attell’s Comedy Underground, Live at Gotham, The Tonight Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. His first one-hour special, Fun Size, was the highest rated on Showtime, and a year later, he followed that up with his second special, Daddy Issues, which was more successful than the first and prompted The New York Times to write “No one is doing it [stand-up comedy] more hilariously than Brad Williams.” His third special in three years was an uproarious one, hosting some of the edgiest comedians in the country from the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Festival. Most recently, Williams recorded a new half-hour special for Netflix’s upcoming stand-up comedy showcase The Degenerates.
In addition to stand-up and acting, Williams has become a dynamic on-air personality as well. His podcast with Adam Ray, About Last Night, is a mainstay on the iTunes charts. He is also a regular contributor on KROQ’s Kevin and Bean Show in Los Angeles, as well as Adam Carolla’s podcast, The Adam Carolla Show.
Williams’ ability to make humorous and inspiring observations on disability, relationships, sex, and race are consistently winning over audiences and proving anyone can overcome their shortcomings. His live performances are always high energy and frequently feature full standing ovations from those in attendance, which prompted the late Robin Williams to call him “Prozac with a head.”
