Bill Bellamy entered comedy as a lark. While at Rutgers University, he entered a male beauty pageant and won after he showcased a hidden talent –
comedy. After winning numerous amateur competitions, Bellamy moved on to work his act in some of the top comedy clubs across the country. He made his national television debut as a featured guest on Showtime at the Apollo.
His success with the “toughest audience in the world” caught the attention of comedy producers Bernie Brillstein and Russell Simmons. The two immediately signed him on as a guest star of HBO’s Def Comedy Jam. Soon after, Bellamy starred in his own Showtime comedy special BOOTY CALL, which became one of the network’s top-rated specials. The rest, as they say, is history.
