Bill Bellamy is a stand-up comedian and actor from Newark who started doing stand-up while he was a student at Rutgers University. When he discovered how much he enjoyed making people laugh, he began honing his skills at small comedy clubs around the country and was soon making waves in the New York clubs like The Improv, The Comic Strip, and at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles.
Bellamy quickly earned a spot on HBO’s "Def Comedy Jam" where he notoriously coined the phrase “Booty Call.” The now famous late-night rendez-vous moniker became the name for his first comedy special for Showtime; “Booty Call” and it was instantly one of the network’s top-rated specials. In between acting in feature films, TV shows and hosting duties, he debuted his third Showtime comedy special, "Ladies Night Out" in 2013 and appeared as a featured player in Shaq & Cedric the Entertainer's "All Star Comedy Jam," which aired as a Showtime comedy special in 2017.
In 2018, Bellamy had a recurring role on HBO’s "Insecure" and can be seen next in the upcoming horror/thriller film, "A Dark Foe," opposite Selma Blair and Graham Greene.
