If you mixed CNN with Looney Tunes, you have an idea of what it’s like to watch Alvin Williams perform. From the little things in life that truly matter, to the big issues that shouldn’t matter at all, Williams finds the funny in all the places you forgot to look. Whether it’s celebrities, politics, relationships, sports, family, or random tv commercials, you won’t know which direction he’s headed next, you’ll just be glad you took the ride with him.
Born in Chicago, IL, Alvin shared his childhood between Illinois, Tennessee, Colorado, Oregon, Louisiana, and Idaho (yes, Idaho), making him a “native son” in many of his performance destinations. Growing up he learned to rapidly adapt to his ever-changing environment by turning strangers into friends through laughter, a skill that is noticeably on display as soon as he hits the stage. He has wasted no time making his presence felt in both the national and international comedy circuits with a non-stop tour schedule that spans the entire United States and Canada to his credit. In 2008 he hosted the inaugural Mile High Comedy Festival in Denver, CO. Later that year he became the recurring host of the Shades of Black Show, a multi-cultural talent showcase that tours college campuses across the U.S. In 2009, he was invited to perform at the Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival in Asheville, NC, and in 2012 he headlined the Bob 93.7 FM Comedy Festival in Reno, NV.
Aside from live performances, Alvin can be seen in a variety of national network television appearances, including commercials for Big Brother Big Sister, Columbia Bank, and Powerball MegaMillions. Most recently he performed on the new tv series Comedy Unfiltered on NuvoTV as well as the shows Comedy Brew and Quicklaffs on Hulu.com, and is a 4-time Featured Comic on the viral video network Comedy Time TV.
