Comedian Lavell Crawford is quickly climbing the comedic ranks and becoming one of the hottest stars in the biz today. He filmed a new one-hour special in his home town of St. Louis, “Can A Brother Get Some Love?,” which is on DVD from Entertainment One. In addition, he filmed an episode of “Workaholics” for Comedy Central and he’s been cast in a recurring role on AMC’s Emmy Award-winning “Breaking Bad.” If that’s not enough, he also been seen as a regular panelist on E! Entertainment’s “Chelsea Lately” and a regular on “Lopez Tonight.”

As one of the hottest touring acts in the country, audiences are becoming increasingly familiar with Lavell’s giant-sized talent. Lavell gained huge national exposure on NBC’s hit reality series “Last Comic Standing” which also caught the attention of NBC execs who signed him to his own holding deal. Plus Comedy Central also took notice offering him his own half-hour standup special, “Comedy Central Presents: Lavell Crawford." Lavell’s stand-out work includes appearances on "Shaquille O'Neal Presents: All Star Comedy Jam," Russell Simmons’ "Def Comedy Jam” on HBO, “Showtime at the Apollo,” “Martin Lawrence Presents 1st Amendment,” “Comic’s Unleashed with Byron Allen,” “Steve Harvey’s Big Time” “Comedy Central’s Premium Blend,” “Motown Live” and “BET’s Comic View.”

In addition, Lavell has appeared in the films “Baby’s Mama Drama,” “Beverlyhood,” “Ghetto South Problems,” and on the televised series “The Jamie Foxx Show.” On stage, he played Ben in the hit play “Men Cry in the Dark,” based on the Michael Baisden best seller. Lavell also recently appeared on stage with the critically acclaimed production “Friends and Lovers,” a stage production based on the novel by author Eric Jerome Dickey where he played the scene-stealing Bobby. The play also featured notable actors such as Miguel Nunez (“Juwana Man”), Leon (“The Five Heartbeats”), Monica Calhoun (“The Best Man”), Mel Jackson (“Soul Food”) and Maia Campbell (“In the House”). Endeared by audiences far and wide, Lavell has built a very strong fan base playing theatres, comedy clubs and colleges across the nation in addition to festivals including HBO's US Comedy Arts Festival, The Comedy Festival and LAFFAPALOOZA, America's longest-running annual urban comedy festival.
