He may not have an impressive personality, at first sight, that is, if you go by his height, but you just have to give him a mic, put him on a stage, and Brad Williams will certainly not make it easy for you.
The American comedian and actor are one of those stars who for one reason or another wouldn’t have shone. For Brad, he just happened to be in the right place at the right time. While he was attending one of Carlos Mencia’s live comedy shows as a pure event goer, Brad suddenly found himself on stage when the popular comedian made a few jokes that impressed Mencia, and the rest became an interesting story. Consequently, many people would remember him for his performances in many movies and shows.
Who Is Brad Williams The Comedian? Brief Biography
The actor cum Comedian was born on January 13, 1984, in Orange, California, where he grew up, but the identities of his parents and other family members are not currently available online. For his education, he attended Sunny Hills High School in Fullerton, California, where he graduated and moved to the University of Southern California. Before he could graduate from the university, Brad retired and gave up his studies to give acting and comedy a chance, and that decision seems to have paid off immensely.
After his birth, Brad Williams was found to suffer from a condition known as achondroplasia, which is a type of dwarfism. Although this would have prevented many people from pursuing their dreams or making public appearances in any form, Brad seems to be using his disease to great advantage. In particular, the fact that he was born with this disease has become indispensable for his current success as a stand-up comedian and actor. Apparently, he has twisted his fate in his favor. He is standing at a height of 1.32 meters.
It’s not clear when and how the two met, but Brad has been married to his girlfriend Jasmine Gong for almost a year. The two have taken their relationship to the next level in 2017, after they signed the Covenant for Life on September 2, 2017. We have yet to find out if they have already welcomed a child or if they have any plans to do so.
Before fame and the limelight found him, Brad Williams was a normal boy trying to get his university degree. The tide turned, however, when he went to one of the live shows organized by Carlos Mencia, who stood up after he made a joke about dwarves that made people around Brad uncomfortable. When he saw this, Mencia invited Brad to join him on stage, and after a few jokes, he couldn’t help but be impressed by what came out of his mouth. After that Brad stayed in the industry (stand-up comedy) and became Mencia’s support act and has been in this job ever since.
Subsequently, Brad Williams began performing in Mind of Mencia, where he played many roles. He also appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Kevin and Bean Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live!
To his right as a stand-up comedian, Brad Williams has released his debut full-length album Comedy, Coming Up Short (2011). Later in 2014, he became co-host of the podcast About Last Night with his comedian/actor colleague Adam Ray.
In 2015, Brad released his first one-hour comedy special entitled Brad Williams: Fun Size, while the second was titled Brad Williams: “Daddy Issues” hit the airwaves in 2016. They were both broadcast on Showtime.
So far he has worked with talented comedians such as Bob Saget, Jim Jeffries, Eddie Izzard, Jay Mohr, and Bill Burr. In all his performances with the above mentioned, Brad has always stood out from the crowd and left the stage with a standing ovation each time.
It is important to note that Brad Williams and Wee Man from Jackass are two different people, often mistakenly thought of as one person. This is because of their similar appearance.
Although not one of the most famous and highest-earning in the industry, Brad is a comedian who has made a name for himself in the highly competitive industry and has established his credentials. His last estimated net worth is estimated at $500,000, which is not bad for someone who hasn’t been in the business for many years.
