On his 21st birthday, he took up blues guitar, drawn to the emotional content of the art form “I believe musicians can be the greatest communicators, because they touch our hearts without the restraints of language, or visual effects”. Beaz, as his friends call him, played lead guitar. One night, while playing a solo, someone shouted- “that was Killer, Beaz!” THE NAME STUCK!! When he made the move to the comedy stage, he took the name with him!
Biker bars, pool halls, and Blues rooms were the only venues available in his home state of Mississippi. He did them all. During his first 317 performances on this “Chitlin Circuit”,Beaz’s KILLER stage presence was quite obvious. He was named Showtime Cable Networks’ “funniest Person in Ms.” 3 years running!
After years of “trial by fire” in the worst stand-up environments on the planet, Beaz traveled to Chicago, where he saw his first live comedian, Jay Leno! While Leno’s performance was awesome, Beaz was equally thrilled to discover that there were places people came for the sole purpose of seeing stand-up comedy! Within months, Beaz had relocated to Nashville, Tn.
Beaz has made numerous appearances on such networks and television/ radio shows as Showtime, Entertainment Tonight, Comedy Central, A&E , CMT, Nashville Network, Speed Channel, Outdoor Channel, Bob & Tom show, John Boy & Billy show, Rick & Bubba show, Bob & Sherry show, Phil Valentine show, XM radio, WTF with Marc Maron, CNN, Turner South, ESPN, GAC, The Lia show, & E! He has also been featured in Rolling Stone magazine, Southern magazine, USA today, & Country Weekly
Beaz continues to use his formula of high energy with universal appeal as one of the nation’s top comics. He recently recorded a new CD with Warner Brothers which is home to his pals, the Blue Collar Comedy guys. Don’t miss an opportunity to catch “The Best Buzz in Town
