To those in the know Arnez J. is quickly emerging as one of the hottest,
most talked about comedic artists in the game. His raw energy, talent
and comedic skill quickly landed Arnez the coveted hosting slot on
BET’s longest-running comedy series “Comic View” for two seasons
joining the ranks of hosts such as D.L. Hughley and Cedric the
Entertainer. His hilarious new comedy special “Racially Motivated” is
now available on Netflix.
Arnez J.’s charisma and physical agility are unforgettable. “J is a
whirling dervish on stage–he runs, jumps, spins, slides, slips, and mugs
through a performance, acting out many of his bits while describing
them,” wrote Doug Kaufman in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Arnez
admits of himself “I’ve always expressed my things through mannerisms
and facial expressions rather than speaking.”
On his own at age 14, Arnez lied about his age to get a job at a gas
station to work his way through school. With dreams to become a
professional baseball player, Arnez began working as a flight attendant
when those baseball plans fell through. It was while working as a flight
attendant that Arnez discovered his comedic talent. He realized that he
had the ability to keep the passengers and crew laughing and, upon
encouragement from friends, he made his first attempt at stand-up
comedy. After that first night on stage, he knew what he wanted to do.
He left his job with the airlines and made the decision to devote all of his
time to a career in comedy.
Arnez got a chance to combine his ambitions as both an athlete and
performer when he was recruited by scouts for the famed Harlem
Globetrotters basketball team who saw his very physical comedy routine
at a local basketball game. However, after several months, a knee injury
ended his Globetrotters career, finally clearing the way for him to devote
himself full time to standup comedy.
An Atlanta native, Arnez began working the comedy circuit in Georgia
and quickly became one of “Hotlanta’s” funniest newcomers. A finalist
in the “Bay Area Black Comedy Competition,” he was immediately
noticed by the entertainment industry and was asked to make his first
television appearance on Showtime’s “Comedy Club Network.”
Numerous television appearances soon followed including appearances
on “The Keenan Ivory Wayans Show,” “Louie Anderson’s Comedy
Showcase,” Comedy Central’s “Make Me Laugh,” NBC’s “Friday Night
Videos,” “The Mo’Nique Show”, Russell Simmons’ “Def Comedy Jam,”
his own BET “Comic View Grandstand Hour Special,” and “Comedy
Central Presents: Arnez J.” He was most recently seen headlining
Showtime’s “Shaquille O’Neal Presents: All Star Comedy Jam.”
Today, Arnez is widely considered one of the best working artists, with
a polished and highly entertaining standup routine that keeps his
audiences entertained without having to use profanity. In keeping with
his plan, Arnez keeps up a dizzying pace performing for sold out
crowds at arenas and other venues across the country.
