"7- Minute Upgrade: Justin"

"This Weekend: Comedy on Cookman in Asbury Park"

Justin Williams really wants to be Batman, because, he says, "according to 'The Dark Knight Rises,' he can heal a broken back with a rope, survive a nuclear explosion and not be late for dinner with Anne Hathaway in Milan.''

A lofty goal for sure. But until the estimate comes back on the tights and utility belt, Williams is more than happy making people laugh. Saturday night finds him performing amid a gaggle of up-and-coming comics at The Showroom in Asbury Park:

"Dallas Comedy Festival 2012: Day One"

Justin Williams kicked things off nicely with an intelligent set that played off of his black intellectual persona to big laughs. He covered the bases of family and social dynamics, shared some strange experiences about living in New York and finished with a bit of local humor. - Improv Wins


Still working on that hot first release.



Hailing from Kansas City, Missouri, Justin Williams is black and comfortably middle class. Justin developed his sense of humor as a defense mechanism. Moving between divorced parents caused him to always be the "new kid" in school. So it was either be the nerd or the funny nerd. Justin chose the second option, mainly because Steve Urkel was huge back then.

Since moving to New York City, Justin parlayed that awkward energy into a unique Stand Up act, complete with deadpan delivery and a knack for sarcastically pointing out the absurd. As one of New York City's funniest up-and-coming comics he’s performed at The Gilda's Club 10th Annual Laugh Off (Finalist), The 2009 Boston Comedy Festival (Semi-finalist), 2011 & 2012 Cape Fear Comedy Festival, The 5th Annual Laugh Your Asheville Off, The 2012 Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, The 2012 Dallas Comedy Festival, The 2013 North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival and was recently featured on Comedy Central's Jokes.com and SiriusXM's Raw Dog Comedy. He is also the host of "Death Comedy Jam" at the Creek and the Cave.

Justin can also be heard on the weekly comedy podcast "3 Dudes and Broad," with fellow comics Wilson McDermut, Jordan Elizabeth Korabic and Marshall Stevenson on www.3dudesandabroad.com

This Fall, Justin released his debut comedy DVD, "Justin Williams: Black and Comfortably Middle-Class" for $.99 on Youtube.
