AKA: Eddie Brown Hometown: Houston, TX Occupation: Actor, Stand-up Comic, Teacher When it comes to the art of stand-up, Comedian Eddie B is fast becoming one of comedy’s masterpieces! The Houston native, born Eddie Brown, exploded on the comedy scene intent on breaking the rules and changing the game. Eddie began honing his comedic skill in front of a packed house at his beloved TEXAS A&M University-
Kingsville College. There he discovered his disarming knack for physical comedy and developed the raw, edgy humor that's become his trademark. Since then he has blazed a trail through the industry, performing across the nation and leaving a flood of awestruck audiences and fellow comics in his wake. Today, Eddie’s comedy is synonymous with blistering sets that engage, enchant and thoroughly entertain. With each show, audiences are reminded that he is a dedicated artist whose passion for comedy far transcends a typical passing interest.
Eddie B’s professional resume is enviable. His one-hour comedy special “Stage Therapy” garnered critical acclaim. He has developed a stockpile of unique, outrageous characters that handily rival the best-known personalities made famous by his idols Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence. Eddie’s spot on parodies of world-famous singer and songwriter Justin Bieber and the popular “Insanity” video craze that he cleverly transformed into the internet sensation “Eddie B Mansanity Workout” solidifies him as one of the most talented and versatile performers of his generation. The self-made artist is also the most irreverent member of the groundbreaking group the “5 Degrees of Comedy”. Fans from the Houston Improv to the River Oaks Theater and other renowned venues love the hilarious bad boy who has been called reality in frenetic motion.
Personally, Eddie B is as down to earth as they come. The doting single father is one of Houston’s most recognized educators. Always on a tireless path toward growth and success, he earned his Master’s in Business Administration while raising his son and building two solid careers.
There is a comic wisdom behind those deep brown eyes. He serves it up with powerful energy. Critics and fans agree, you will be hard pressed to find a more multi-faceted entertainer.
