COMEDY: Brad Williams
They say luck is when opportunity meets preparation and thats exactly how Brad Williams became a comedian. While attending a show by Carlos Mencia, Williams was called up onstage to chat with the veteran comic. Williams killed and gained the confidence to do comedy himself. However, it wasnt his natural cleverness that helped him win the audience over that night, so much as a lifetime of using humor as a defense mechanism. Williams credits his father, an attorney by trade, for bringing humor into his life. My dads one of the funniest dudes I know. Hes funnier than me. Hes great with comebacks and zingers, so he gets me a lot. The elder Williams made fun of his son, who was born with achondroplasia, but not in a mean-spirited way. He did it because he knew other kids would make fun of me, so he did it first to get me prepared for it.
