Reviews & Ratings
Guy Torry began his acting career around the age of 23. He made minor appearances on shows such as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Family Matters and Martin. In 1997, he became a regular cast member of UPN's short-lived sitcom Good News. He eventually started touring all around the world doing stand up comedy, with numerous sold-out events and standing ovations.
He appeared on Def Jam Comedy, which featured his brother Joe Torry as one of the hosts, as well as appearances on Comedy Central and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Also, he created and hosted a very successful weekly comedy show called "Phat Tuesdays," at one of America's most famous comedy hubs "The Comedy Store." "Phat Tuesdays" formed in 1995 and lasted for 10 years.
Guy Torry was also an original member of the Kings of Comedy in 1998, where he hosted for the first year. He couldn't continue the second year due to a starring role he landed on the UPN action-drama The Strip. He also wrote for other television series such as Martin and Moesha among others.
He started breaking into films in the mid-90s and has had parts in many films since then such as Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, Life, and Trippin'. His most notable role was as a convict named Lamont in American History X, who helped turn a young Nazi skinhead's life around while in prison. He also works on The Tony Scott Morning Show along with host Tony Scott and Tammy Holland.
