Staying busy is not a problem for Bill Bellamy, whose flourishing career encompasses the worlds of feature film, television, comedy and more. His career is on the rise, yet his feet remain firmly planted on the ground.
Bellamy just completed filming the independent feature GETTING PLAYED starring opposite Vivica A. Fox, Carmen Electra and Stacey Dash. The romantic comedy revolves around three beautiful women who make a game of trying to seduce a random male target played by Bellamy.
Bellamy continues to keep his comedy chops sharp with regular stand-up appearances at comedy clubs and arenas across the country. His intelligence and infectious humor landed the comedian a guest-correspondent stint on Entertainment Tonight. Bellamy also co-hosted the prestigious Malibu MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Awards and the Diversity Awards with Kathy Griffin for the Multicultural Motion Pictures Association.
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.
