Very few comedians can make people laugh just by laughing, but Red Grant's infectious signature laugh does just that to audiences everywhere. The comedian then keeps the laughter going with his mesmerizing jokes centered around everyday life that almost everyone can relate to. Red has been making audiences fall out of their seats with outlandish side-splitting humor for over a decade. He is currently serving as the host of The Pimp Chronicles II Tour featuring Katt Williams, Luenell (Borat) and Melanie Comarcho (Three Strikes). The Washington, DC, native discovered comedy when his dream of becoming a professional football player evaporated after being kicked off his college football team for having a bad attitude. "I went back home and began selling cars at 19. It was the worse job I ever had, I hated it. When I thought things couldn't get any worse, my best friend suggested that I should try comedy since I was so funny and the life of the fraternity house parties we used to have. I took his advice and worked the D.C. comedy clubs for six months to hone my skills and I haven't looked back," says Red. During those six months a producer of "Def Comedy Jam" saw Red and invited him on the show. While in New York that same weekend, Red also appeared on "Show Time at the Apollo." Audiences at both venues loved him! From that exposure Red was able to make connections at BET and later guest starred on a comedy show with Monique for the talk show "Teen Summit." That led to a position as "Teen Summit's" New York correspondent for two years. It was at BET where Red learned to produce and direct his own shows. After earning the respect and confidence of BET execs he was asked to write/produce/direct five shows for the network geared toward African Americans. His shows "The Lobby," "21 Questions Reloaded," "The Chubby Man's Show" and "Remix" were well received by audiences. At the same time he was appearing on BET's "ComicView."
