Willie Brown is a nationally known ventriloquist who has appeared several times on BET Comic View, HBO DEF Comedy Jam, Loco Comedy Jam, Phaturdays, The Jenny Jones Show, and most recently in a recurring role on the Showtime Network series Barbershop. From topics such as the family, church, how to deal with the homeless, to current events, Willie Brown and Woody (his wooden partner) bring it home. Willie Brown and Woody now perform largely at churches, theaters, colleges, comedy clubs, and corporate events. Brown and his sidekick have headlined many comedy clubs throughout the country and abroad.
They’ve performed numerous times overseas at U.S. military bases in Korea, Japan, Germany, and Bosnia. They have also performed in England, Amsterdam, South Africa, and the Caribbean. Brown has toured with Cedric The Entertainer, and worked with Steve Harvey, Jamie Foxx, and Mike Epps.

The big screen is no unfamiliar territory for Brown. He’s an avid actor and has appeared in the movie “Tears of a Clown,” starring Don D.C. Curry, and in “All About You,” a romantic comedy starring Lisa Raye, Debbie Allen, and Rockmond Dunbar, The Let Out Guys, which is a comedy short, and his own film Footcops, which he wrote and produced. Brown has also made an impact on the commercial world booking national spots for Kellogg’s Eggo Waffle Syrup, American Airlines, McDonald’s, Skittles, and others. In his hard to find spare moments Willie spends his time writing and developing screenplays. He recently released a new comedy CD titled “Willie Brown and Woody on the Up and Up” (in stores soon). Willie Brown is also a corporate humorist who gives speeches nationally.
