For those who are unfamiliar with him, Lavell Crawford has quickly climbed the ranks of comedians. Having performed on stage for specials such as "Russell Simmons' Def Comedy JAM" on HBO, and "Showtime at the Apollo," his big break came from his stint on NBC's reality show "Last Comic Standing."
Since gaining a national audience, Lavell has also appeared on the big screen in "Baby's Mama Drama," and, "Beverlyhood." He has also been seen on E! Entertainment's "Chelsea Lately," and just recently landed a recurring role on AMC's Award-winning show, "Breaking Bad."
Lavell brought his stand up act to the Improv Louisville November 16 and 17, but if you couldn't make it, you can see him on WAVE 3's Live from 725 South Floyd.
