With a dynamic energy and almost tangible onstage presence, Edwards remains one of comedy's most in demand performers worldwide. As one of the stars of Guy Code, he has helped it become the most successful in network history. He has made several late night appearances, including The Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Last Call with Carson Daly, and is a frequent guest on Comic Unleashed.
Edwards first made his mark in comedy during two successful seasons as a cast member on Saturday Night Live. With such memorable impressions as Don Cheadle, Michael Jackson and Denzel Washington, as well as original characters including "Man in Elevator" and "Cop#2," he always pushed himself to the limits of creativity. Feature credits include "Spiderman 3," while his first comedy CD, "Real Talk with Fake People, Volume 1" debuted at the top of iTunes comedy charts in 2009.
Edwards' first big break came on Russell Simmons' Def Comedy Jam, and he was subsequently featured on Showtime at the Apollo a few years later. He also worked with Spike Lee on the hit feature film, "The Original Kings of Comedy," and has since earned a reputation at comedy clubs and colleges across the country. An international sensation, he has attended comedy festivals worldwide, and more recently, completed a tour of the Middle East.
