Audience favorite Brad Williams will return to Pasadena’s Ice House Comedy Club for one night on Thursday, July 3. Comedian Brad Williams has lived a true comic Cinderella story. Born with Achondroplastic dwarfism, Brad would endure countless taunts and gawks from classmates and random people on the street. Instead of crying about it, Brad turned to humor. He has appeared on numerous TV shows including Mind Of Mencia, Live at Gotham, The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Pitboss. Brad has also performed for the troops all over the world.
Brad was born and raised in Orange County, CA. He dropped out of college and started doing comedy at the age of 19. He toured as Carlos Mencia’s opening act for 5 years. Brad’s big break came when he would appear in numerous sketches on Comedy Central’s Mind Of Mencia TV show. Brad’s memorable roles on the show include playing a whore dwarf (“whorf”), the leader of an all dwarf basketball team, joining Mencia at a Renaissance faire, and giving a speech about his hatred of podiums.
Brad’s show is high energy. Robin Williams called him “Prozac with a head.” Brad’s ability to make humorous observations on disability, relationships, sex, and race are winning over audiences and proving that anyone can overcome their shortcomings.
