In the standup and acting worlds, Smoove has been featured on “Tough Crowd,” “Jamie Foxx Presents: Laffapalooza,” and several “Saturday Night Live” and  “Late Night with Conan O’ Brien,” sketches. He was a recurring character on “Everybody Hates Chris” and later became a cast member on the Brad Garrett  sitcom “’Til Death.”  He will next be seen as host of the new Comedy Central standup series, “Russell Simmons Presents: The Ruckus,”.
