American comedian and actor Red Grant has remained one of the top comedians on television over the years, gaining millions of fans from all walks of life. Born and raised in Washington, DC, Red has gone to heights many performers can only dream of, doing things that few comics have done since Robert Townsend. Getting his start at the Apollo Theatre and HBO’s Def Comedy Jam in 1996; Red Grant is best known for his contagious laugh and appearances in American Hustle (which he starred next to Katt Williams), First Sunday and Martin Lawrence First Amendment. Red Grant has become synonymous with 'real, raw comedy.' He can be seen most recently on Shaq’s All Star Comedy Jam, as well as his hour Showtime special "Caught Red Handed" and Comedy Central Presents 'Red Grant' (half hour special).
