PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Best known for roles in the films Friday, Elf, The Replacements, Made, and Couples Retreat was raised in San Diego, California and Newark, New Jersey because of his father's career in the United States Navy. Love got his start as a stand-up comedian and made his acting debut in an Off-Broadway at the age of 19. His motion-picture debut, Bebe's Kids, had him providing the voice of comedian Robin Harris, who died before production began on the film; Love offered a close vocal impression of Harris. He then had a role in The Meteor Man, starring Robert Townsend. Townsend then cast Love in a co-starring role on his sitcom The Parent 'Hood. He followed up this role with a breakout performance as the drug supplier Big Worm in the 1995 film Friday. Follow-up films have included 3 Strikes, Elf, Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, Money Talks, Wonderland, The Fighting Temptations, and Idlewild. Love co-starred in Couples Retreat (2009), a comedy film chronicling four couples who partake in therapy sessions at a tropical island resort. In 2012, he played the role of Stringer Bell in the satirical trailer for The Wire: The Musical. Most recently, Love can be seen on Mr. Box Office, ABC’s Black-ish, along with the much anticipated New Edition: The Movie TV series on BET

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Comedian Marcus Combs’ advice for aspiring comedians about other comedians: “As soon as you start getting funny, no one is ever going to help you again,” he said. He’d know — he’s been a comedian for two decades. You may have caught Combs on Def Comedy Jam, BET’s “ComicView” or in “The Bad Boys of Comedy.” This week, he headlines Chuckles Comedy House for 6 shows, June 18-21 fathers Day Weekend.


LEO: You’ve done shows for military. Are they different from other comedy shows?
Marcus Combs: They’re really not that different, because they’re all American. They get the culture and the references. It’s kind of like traveling to Florida to perform for your neighbor. Amsterdam was the only time when I feel like they didn’t understand my culture. They do, but they don’t get it like we do. They don’t really know African American culture, because when they see a black guy, he’s African.


Was your family funny?
My dad had a sense of humor, but he wasn’t silly. You’d be like, ‘How ya doing?’ And he’d say something dry like, ‘Trying to pay the rent and probably kill the landlord.’


Coming from a background as an athlete, how did you move to comedy?
I was playing football for University of Langston but got in a car accident and injured my foot. I was lying there in a hospital bed and got a taste for stand-up. I had won class clown two years in a row, and I was tired of hearing about how I needed to be a comedian. So, after I healed up, I found an open mic


How did that first show go?
I bombed. It was going OK until one of the house favorite comedians came in. [S]he’s a [transgender person] who performs as Flame Monroe [and uses female and male pronouns]. It was my very first time doing this, and [s]he decided to start heckling me hardcore. I went down in flames — pardon the pun. We’re friends now, but [s]he never lets me forget that. I was also a huge fan of ‘Def Comedy Jam,’ and going to that open mic, I saw all of these comedians I had seen on there. That really inspired me.


So, comedy wasn’t even in your purview until the accident?
Actually, I used to sneak in and listen to my dad’s Richard Pryor albums on wax. Then, Eddie Murphy came out with ‘Delirious.’ We watched that shit on Betamax. My parents would be like, ‘Get out of here. You can’t watch this, kid.’ I’m like, ‘OK, cool. I’ll watch it tomorrow while you’re at work.’ Then, I’d go to school quoting Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor jokes. So, comedy was always a part of me.


You’re married and father of two daughters.
Actually, I’m also a grandfather of two granddaughters. I have a 9-year-old granddaughter and a 7-year-old daughter. Ain’t that some shit? And they’re all women! I told my wife, ‘I gotta get rid of at least one of you all. And you’re the easiest.’ I don’t even know how to be a grandfather. I’m not going to start fishing or anything like that.


What advice would you give a young comedian that no one ever gave you?
As soon as you start getting funny, no one is ever going to help you again. Remember that. They’ll help you until you’re funny, but once you’re funny, you’re on your own. Comedians are like parents: They’ll raise you to a point, then you gotta take care of yourself.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, comedian-turned-actor DeRay Davis can most recently be "scene" starring opposite Taraji P. Henson's "Cookie Lyons" as her go-to hitman/cousin "Jermel" in seasons 1 and 2 of the Lee Daniels and Danny Strong, creative collaboration, Empire on the FOX network. After his wildly successful 1 hour Showtime Comedy Special, DeRay Davis: Power Play that aired to rave reviews, Davis continues to ascend on what can only be described as the Samuel E. Jackson Formula; a path and pattern of consistent, feature film and network television roles! After his first, single card credit, as "Spooner" in John Carpenter's remake of The Fog (2005), it has been eleven years (and counting) of back to back, prominently featured/starring roles in both film (32+) and television (50+) staring opposite Hollywood heavy hitters. License to Wed opposite John Krasinski, Semi-Pro opposite Will Ferrell, Imagine That opposite Eddie Murphy, Life As We Know It opposite Katherine Heigl, Old Dogs opposite Robin Williams & John Travolta, 21 Jump Street (2012) opposite Channing Tatum & Johnny Depp, G.I. Joe: Retaliation opposite Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson - just to name a few. Between takes, on the afore mentioned nationally released feature films, Davis continued to star and sometimes contribute as producer/writer in a steady stream of network television movies, mini-series, variety shows and sitcoms. One of DeRay's first credited writer/ Voice Over roles was on Kanye West earlier Albums (and you thought that was Bernie Mac, didn't you?) Davis contributed 5+ Voice Over Character roles on Multi Seasons of The Boondocks , Adult Swim's Black Dynamite and continued sharpening his comedic craft by starring on almost every season of Nick Cannon's Wild n Out from its conception to current airing on MTV as well as Hip-Hop Squares, Short Circuitz and Hosting the game show Mind of a Man on GSN. This led to his currently starring as Host on MTV2's Joking Off currently in its second season (release date TBA)! Davis transformed his torridly rough upbringing, status as a working actor and fatherhood into a live show that stays fresh and ever changing according to whatever is happening in his daily life while he continues to develop and hone his streetwise mentality smoothly and efficiently onto the comedy-club circuit. He achieved his career breakthrough at the Laffapalooza Festival in Atlanta, GA, and then scored a 3-peat by winning the Comedy Central Laugh Riots Competition and landing covetable spots in the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival as well as the Budweiser Def Comedy Jam Competition. From the Hood to Hollywood - nothing is off limits and no one is safe from DeRay's hilarious, sidesplitting anecdotes. He continues to sell out venues both domestically and internationally. His highly anticipated 1st ever Netflix special "DeRay Davis: How to Act Black" smashed the cultural landscape on November 14, 2017 and was so popular it shut down the Netflix server TWICE! Davis is continuing to ascend.
