Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, DeRay Davis developed a hip, sardonic, streetwise mentality at an early age. The comedian-turned-actor has appeared in a wide variety of films, including Barbershop, 21 Jump Street, License to Wed, and Meet the Blacks. Davis has voiced multiple characters on the animated television series, The Boondocks. He can also be heard performing comedy skits on Kanye West’s earlier albums. In addition to touring around the country, Davis hosts a weekly show at the Hollywood Improv.
