Red Grant is an American comedian, actor, writer, and producer. Known for his infectious laugh and his unrelenting work ethic, Red spends a solid forty eight weeks a year on the road doing standup and is currently hosting Katt Williams’ 11:11 RNS World Tour.
Red began his career in 1996 performing at New York’s Apollo Theatre.

Passionate about the world of entertainment, Red took the next step and made a name for himself as a producer, writer and director for film and television. In 2000, he wrote and produced his first film “Family Reunion.” He then went on to create and produce a number of projects for the Viacom Network through his film company MOVIEOS in partnership with Lionsgate Entertainment.
