While attending Southeast Missouri State University, Guy developed a curious desire to pursue a career in entertainment. After moving to Los Angeles, he landed a job as a production assistant on the Fox comedy “Martin.” His quick wit captured the attention of the show's writers, producers, and eventually the show's star Martin Lawrence. Guy became a contributing writer to the series and had subsequent writing stints on sitcoms such as “Minor Adjustments” and “Moesha.” The St. Louis native also received critical acclaim for his work on the small screen starring in the NBC mini-series “The 70's,” the HBO movie “Introducing Dorothy Dandridge,” and the UPN drama “The Strip.” He hosted BET's sports talk show “Baller,” alongside NBA World Champion John Salley and three-time NFL Pro Bowler Hugh Douglas. Guy has made guest star appearances on television series including “Blind Justice,” “The Shield,” “One On One,” “X-Files” and “NYPD Blue.” He also supplied his voice on the animated Nickelodeon series “As Told By Ginger.”
Guy has been seen on BET's Comic View, Comedy Central's Premium Blend, Showtime at the Apollo and Russell Simmons: Def Comedy Jam where he made his stand up-debut to a national audience. Guy also hosted the enormously successful 52-city Kings of Comedy tour. He hosts a weekly spotlight at the Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip entitled “The Guy Torry Show” where Guy hosts and produces a comedy showcase featuring an improv comedy troupe. His events have become a huge success and are regularly attended by comedy’s A-List, including Eddie Murphy, Chris Tucker and Chris Rock.
Guy has appeared in such feature films as “Funny Money,” opposite Chevy Chase, Penelope Ann Miller and Chris McDonald, “The Last Stand,” starring Anthony Anderson, Darrin Henson, Kevin Hart, and the independent thriller “Slow Burn,” opposite Ray Liotta, Taye Diggs, LL Cool J and Mekhi Phifer. Guy has also appeared with Matt Damon, Greg Kinnear and Eva Mendes in the 20th Century Fox Film, “Stuck on You,” and his other film credits include Runaway Jury, Don't Say A Word, Pearl Harbor, Life, The Animal and most notably, American History X.
