Bruce Bruce is a name synonymous with keeping audiences rolling with laughter, thanks to his captivating improv skills and larger than life comedic style.

In 2005 Bruce released his first book, "Baby James Brown," in which he lets loose on a host of subjects, including family, fat people, church, girlfriends and more.

Bruce's comedy can be traced back to when he was working as a chef directly out of high school. He would entertain his customers with his humor while cooking up mean BBQ dishes. Bruce also worked as a Frito-Lay salesman and did everything from shelf placement to performing comedy sets during corporate meetings. Eventually, Bruce brought his routine to the Comedy Act Theater in Atlanta where he was an instant hit. When BET's "Coast to Coast" came to town searching for new and talented stand-up comedians, Bruce pursued the opportunity to appear on the show and incessantly auditioned at each club in the area. Ultimately, he appeared on the show three times. In 1993, Bruce made his first appearance on HBO's "Def Comedy Jam," followed quickly by an impressive appearance on "Showtime at the Apollo" in 1994. His performance was so strong and impressive that the Apollo asked him to perform two more times in 1995.

His career skyrocketed from there. After receiving the highest ratings ever as the host of BET's "Comic View," Bruce took on hosting duties for BET's highly-rated "Coming to the Stage." Bruce went on to star in his own "Comedy Central Presents" special, which he followed with the release of his one-hour stand-up DVD, "Bruce Bruce Live." His second one-hour comedy special, "Losin' It," aired on Showtime in 2011.

Bruce's bigger-than-life personality has crossed over onto the music video scene as well. He has made guest appearances in videos with Ludacris and the Ying Yang Twins (after being named in their hit song "Salt Shaker"). He appeared in the 1996 summer hit "Come On Ride the Train (Ride It)" by Quad City DJs and can also be seen in Outkast's video for "So Fresh, So Clean."

Bruce's memorable festival appearances include the prestigious Black Film Festival in Acapulco (2001), the Just For Laughs Festival in both Chicago (2009) and Montreal (2000, 2003 and 2008), the Laffapalooza Festival in Atlanta (1999-2002) and the US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen (2002).

When not performing in comedy clubs across the country, Bruce divides his time between his homes in Atlanta and Los Angeles. He is also extremely dedicated to his incredible car collection, which includes two Harley Davidson trucks and four Buick muscle cars, among others.
