Funnyman Lavell Crawford is quickly climbing the ranks to become one of the fastest rising stars in the comedy business. From his numerous television appearances to sold-out stage performances nationwide, word of Lavell's super-sized talent is spreading like fire.
Not only has Lavell has headlined the prestigious "Just for Laughs" Comedy Festival in Montreal, but he has also performed at HBO's US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas, and LAFFAPALOOZA, America's longest-running annual urban comedy festival.
Endeared by audiences far and wide, Lavell began building a devoted fan base long before he ever appeared on television. Today he tours clubs and colleges nationwide, appearing at venues including The Improv, Laugh Factory, Carolines on Broadway, The Stardome and The Comedy House Theatre just to name a few.
Lavell's television appearances include his performances on "NBC's Last Comic Standing", "Comic's Unleashed with Byron Allen", "Martin Lawrence Presents: 1st Amendment", "Premium Blend" on Comedy Central, "The Jamie Foxx Show," "Steve Harvey's Big Time," "Motown Live," "Showtime at the Apollo," "BET's ComicView" and "Russell Simmons' Def Comedy Jam." Lavell is a regular guest on E! television's wildly popular "Chelsea Lately," and he has also been featured in the films "Baby's Mama Drama", "Beverlyhood," and "Ghetto South Problems".
On stage, Lavell played Ben in the hit play "Men Cry in the Dark" based on the Michael Baisden best seller. He also recently appeared on stage with the critically acclaimed production "Friends and Lovers," based on the novel by author Eric Jerome Dickey, where he played the scene-stealing character "Bobby."
In case you can't catch Lavell onstage, on TV, or in the theater, he has recently released his own comedy CD "Takin' a Fat Break."
