Lavell Crawford        

Stand-up Comedian Best Known for his Role in "Breaking Bad"

Funnyman Lavell Crawford is quickly climbing the comedic ranks and becoming one rising comedy star to watch. From his numerous television appearances and on- stage performances, audiences are becoming increasingly familiar with Lavell's giant sized talent. Now, Lavell's audiences have just gotten bigger. After making it as runner-up winner (and clear audience favorite!) on NBC's hit reality series "Last Comic Standing," Comedy Central took note and offered him his own half-hour standup special. "Comedy Central Presents: Lavell Crawford" premiered in 2008. Lavell also headlined Jamie Foxx's "Laffapalooza" the same year, which was shot live from the Las Vegas Comedy Festival and aired on TBS. In addition, Lavell recently appeared on the reality TV spoof "Reality Bites Back!" on Comedy Central.

Always a favorite at comedy clubs and theatres across the country, Lavell has appeared at HBO's US Comedy Arts Festival (Aspen, CO), The Comedy Festival (Las Vegas, NV) and the prestigious Montreal Just for Laughs Festival.

Endeared by audiences far and wide, Lavell has built a very strong fan base playing theatres, comedy clubs and colleges across the nation. He has appeared at such comedy clubs as The Improv, The Laugh Factory, Carolines on Broadway, The Stardome and The Comedy House Theatre just to name a few.

Lavell has also made the jump to television with comedic appearances on "NBC's Last Comic Standing," "Comic's Unleashed with Byron Allen," "Martin Lawrence Presents 1st Amendment," "Comedy Central's Premium Blend," "The Jamie Foxx Show," "Steve Harvey's Big Time," "Motown Live," "Showtime at the Apollo," "BET's ComicView" and "Russell Simmons' Def Comedy Jam" and has appeared in the films "Baby's Mama Drama," "Beverlyhood" and "Ghetto South Problems."

He most recently appeared in "Workaholics" and the hit show "Breaking Bad." He's also been a round-table guest on "Chelsea Lately."

On stage, he played Ben in the hit play "Men Cry in the Dark" based on the Michael Baisden best seller. Lavell also recently appeared on stage with the critically acclaimed production "Friends and Lovers," a stage production based on the novel by author Eric Jerome Dickey. Crawford played the scene-stealing "Bobby." The play also featured notable actors such as Miguel Nunez, Leon, Monica Calhoun, Mel Jackson and Maia Campbell.

Lavell is currently touring and has released his own comedy CD "Takin' a Fat Break."
