Quotes & Highlights
Ever since Chicago native Aries Spears was 14 years old, he has been a force to be reckoned with in the comedy scene throughout America. His quick wit, charisma and ferociously aggressive style of comedy have earned him critical acclaim, high accolades, and above all, a busy schedule. From being a regular on Fox’s “Mad TV,” starring in feature films, appearing on a number of national talk shows, and continually touring the country with his stand-up, Aries’s talents are becoming recognized and appreciated throughout the entertainment industry.
As a principal cast member on Fox’s hit sketch comedy show “Mad TV,” Aries brought a fresh, hip style to the already-edgy program from the third through the tenth season. The producers made full use of many of Aries’s talents by calling on him frequently to create new hilarious characters and write sketches. Some of the many recurring characters that Aries is famous for on the show include: Belma Buttons, Bill Cosby, Jesse Jackson, Mike Tyson, Walter (Crackheads), Dollar Bill Montgomery, Shaquille O’Neal, The Klumps, Michael Jackson, Sisqo, Evander Holyfield, El Diablo Negro and more. Aries also boasts a number of uproarious impersonations on the show that include James Brown, Al Pacino, and his childhood idol Eddie Murphy. The Aries-branded sketch “Talkin’ American” was “Mad TV’s” most popular bit, keeping fans tuned in and boosting ratings impressively on Saturday night.
Aries can also be seen in guest appearances on Fox’s “The Best Damn Sports Show Ever,” where he has created some of the show’s funniest characters. Most recently Aries can be heard on his two live comedy albums, and had a memorable guest appearance on “Mind of Mencia” where he did a parody of a Kanye West video with Carlos Mencia. Spears is also working on a new sketch comedy program with Damon Wayans entitled “The Underground.”
