One of America's best known comedians and writers – who began telling jokes when he ran a Chicago sandwich shop – is set to take Birmingham / UK audiences by storm. The multi-talented Damon Williams has maintained to be one of the leading comedians in the US on the stand-up comedy circuit with a universal appeal – BET Live, It's Showtime at the Apollo, Comic Central's Premium Blend, P Diddy's Bad Boys of Comedy, among others.
Damon's popularity and success has enabled him to work with some of the biggest celebrities in the entertainment business to include Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Luther Vandross and Ray Charles.

His goal is to make you laugh till it hurts. And he surely will. He's considered a "killer" in comedy for his creative and monumental set. He is non-other than Kenny Williams, a former actor from Queens, NY, whose credits include ComicView, Wyclef Jean's The Ecleftic album and LL Cool J's G.O.A.T album.
Kenny's comedy is a set of menagerie characters and call phrases with skits, "Only here for an hour", "Peanuts and Popcorn", "The Super Thug", and "his own language" just to name a few. Kenny will have the audience eating out of the palm of his hand with his energetic and outrageous set.
