In the tradition of comedians who have made the transition from the stage to the screen, such as Richard Pryor and Bill Cosby, multi-talented Guy Torry has made the leap with great success.
Fresh out of college, Guy landed a job as a production assistant on the Fox comedy Martin. His quick wit captured the attention of the show’s writers, producers and the show’s star Martin Lawrence. Guy became a contributing writer to the series and on the sitcom Moesha.
With notebooks full of original comedy material, Guy set out to perform on BET’s “Comic View,” Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” “Showtime at the Apollo” and “Russell Simmons: Def Comedy Jam.”
Torry stepped out as an actor to receive critical acclaim for his work starring in the NBC mini-series The 70’s. Guy has made guest star appearances on television series including Blind Justice, The Shield, One On One, X Files and NYPD Blue.
Guy has appeared in such feature films as The Last Stand, starring Anthony Anderson and Kevin Hart and written and directed by Russ Parr. His other film credits include Life starring Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence and most notably American History X.
