With his place cemented as one of the true legends of comedy, comedian Bruce Bruce continues his
career as one of the best in his craft. With a recognizable name and an impressive reputation, Bruce’
steady style of comedy has been showcased across the country – on stage, on TV, in film and on the
written page. His wit, ability to improv, and infectious personality set him apart from other standup
comedians. Although known for his adult comedy, Bruce prides himself on not using vulgarity to win
laugh. He is no stranger to winning over new audiences - young, old, from all backgrounds - with every appearance he makes.
Bruce is one of the nation’s favorite standup comedians and can currently be seen on three national
comedy tours, "LIT AF Tour" with Martin Lawrence, "The Real Mike Epps Tour,” and the “Royal
Comedy Tour” with Sommore. When not on tour, Bruce can be found performing at premiere comedy
clubs across the United States. He is also featured on the Netflix original comedy series “Family
Reunion” as "Brother Davis", a hilarious foil for Loretta Devine's character.
On the feature film front, Bruce has made cameos in Ice Cube’s “XXX: State of the Union”, “Idlewild,”
and “Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector.” He also appeared in the Steve Harvey comedy “Think
Like a Man,” the Chris Rock- directed, “Top Five,” and most recently in "The Trap," "Undercover
Brother 2," and “Miracles Across 125th Street” with Nick Cannon.
In addition to standup comedy, film and tv, Bruce Bruce can also add author to his list of credits. Penguin Publishing released Bruce’s first memoir Baby James Brown, which regales its readers with hilarious stories from his childhood and experiences that shaped Bruce Bruce into the comedian he is today.
Bruce’s comedy can be traced back to when he was working as a chef directly out of high school,
entertaining his customers with his humor while cooking up mean BBQ dishes. He then worked as a
Frito-Lay salesman and managed to get hired to do standup comedy sets for their corporate meetings. Eventually, Bruce brought his comedy routine to the Comedy Act Theater in Atlanta, where he instantly became an audience favorite. When BET’s “Coast to Coast” came to town searching for talented up-and coming comedians, Bruce was selected and ultimately appeared on the show three times.
His career skyrocketed from there. In 1993, Bruce made his first appearance on HBO’s “Def Comedy
Jam”; followed quickly by an impressive appearance on the “Showtime at the Apollo.” BET executives
noticed and signed him on as host for two seasons of “Comic View”, and then as host of the popular
comedian competition show on BET “Coming to the Stage.”
Bruce’s bigger than life personality has transcended onto the music scene as well. He has made guest appearances in music videos with Ludacris and the Ying Yang Twins (after being named in their hit song “Salt Shaker”), Quad City DJ’s “Come On Ride the Train (Ride It)”and Outkast’s “So Fresh, So Clean.” Most recently, Bruce appeared in the KEM music video, “You’re On My Mind.”
With great skill, Bruce easily weaves real life situations into comedic stories. He is a frequent guest on national radio shows and podcasts, including Kevin Hart’s “Comedy Gold Minds”, Marc Maron’s
“WTF,” “85 South Show,” with DC Young Fly, and Netflix’s “Strong Black Lead.”
Bruce’s memorable comedy festival appearances include the prestigious, Just For Laughs Comedy
Festival in both Chicago and Montreal, Laffapalooza in Atlanta, GA, and the US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, CO.
When not performing, Bruce spends his time at home with his extended family in Atlanta. He is also
extremely dedicated to his impressive car collection, which boasts two Harley Davidson trucks and four Buick muscle cars, among many others.
