I absolutely loved the show! Arnez J was a non stop ball of energy that kept me laughing so hard until my face actually hurt. Some may have disliked his addition of sexual humor, but they need to remember that the show was for 21 years of age and older. Arnez J's return to the IMPROV will find me in a seat, waiting to explode with laughter once more!

Arnez surprised me by including some very vulgar, edgy material. I had invited my parents! We are certainly NOT prudes, but I wondered "why'd you have to go there"?!!!! Needless to say, I was disappointed. Arnez is such a great comedian, his...continued
Arnez J’s charisma and physical agility are unforgettable. His unparalleled form of physical comedy, strong on body language and animation, has been known to evoke standing ovations from crowds at the comedy clubs and concert halls he performs in across the country.
Arnez co-hosted BET’s signature stand-up comedy series Comic View between 2002 and 2003. Comedy Central premiered his half-hour comedy special Comedy Central Presents: Arnez J.
An audience favorite, his one-hour comedy special for BET, named one of the highest rated comedy specials on the network.
Arnez spent years working hard and dreaming of being a professional baseball player. He took a job working as a flight attendant between dreams and it was then that he realized he had the ability to keep the passengers and crew howling in their seats with his dead-on impressions. With some encouragement from friends, he made his first attempt at stand-up comedy. After that first night on stage, he knew what he wanted to do. He left his job with the airlines and made the decision to devote all of his time to a career in comedy. The Harlem Globetrotters took notice of Arnez’s very physical comedy routine at a local celebrity basketball game, and recruited the young comic. However, Arnez suffered a minor knee injury and it was then that he began seriously focusing on comedy, working the circuit in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. He quickly became one of the South’s funniest newcomers.
A finalist in the 1992 Bay Area Black Comedy Competition, Arnez was immediately noticed by the entertainment industry and was asked to make his first television appearance on Showtime’s “Comedy Club Network.” Numerous television appearances soon followed, including appearances on The Keenan Ivory Wayans Show, Louie Anderson’s Comedy Showcase, Comedy Central’s Make Me Laugh, NBC’s Friday Night Videos, Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy Jam, his own BET Comic View Grandstand ½ Hour Special and many others. He hasn’t stopped since then. In keeping with his plan, Arnez keeps up a dizzying pace.
