Coined the “amiable gap-toothed comic” by the New York Times, Williams is renowned for his easy-going style that reveals comically what we’re all thinking but never want to admit.

Biography

A native of Rochester, NY, Lamar Williams attended Brockport College graduating with a degree in Communications. While at Brockport, Lamar developed the hobby of spending his leisure-time performing on amateur night at the local comedy club.

The connection between him and his audience was evident from the start. Lamar’s approach to comedy stems from his roots in western New York, where the long winter months gave way to developing a creative force while stuck indoors. With plenty of time to write, Lamar went on a journey of self-exploration, constructing a
world in which he had all the answers. His cleverly written material isn’t just funny; at times it has the ability to say what we’re all thinking. Lamar has been recognized for a comedic style that allows him to share his opinions without offending. He was quoted in the New York Times, earning him the nickname “the amiable gap toothed comic.”
