opposite Ray Liotta, Taye Diggs, LL Cool J and Mekhi Phifer. Guy appeared with Matt Damon, Greg Kinnear and Eva Mendes in the 20th Century Fox film, "Stuck on You" and his many feature film credits include "Runaway Jury," "Don't Say a Word," "Pearl Harbor," "Life," "The Animal" and most notably "American History X."

He has made guest star appearances on television series including "Blind Justice," "The Shield," "One On One," "X Files" and "NYPD Blue." He also supplied his voice on the animated Nickelodeon series "As Told by Ginger."

While attending Southeast Missouri State University, Torry had a curious desire to pursue a career in entertainment. Once in Los Angeles, he landed a job as a production assistant on the FOX comedy "Martin." His quick wit captured the attention of the show's writers, producers and eventually the show's star Martin Lawrence. Guy became a contributing writer to the series and had subsequent writing stints on sitcoms such as "Minor Adjustments" and "Moesha."

Torry's televised stand up credits include recent performances on BET's "Comic View," Comedy Central's "Premium Blend," "Showtime at the Apollo" and "Russell Simmons: Def Comedy Jam" where he made his standup debut to a national audience. He also hosted the enormously successful 52-city comedy tour "The Kings of Comedy" which grossed over $37M. He created a unique concept called "Phat Comedy Tuesdays" which was a weekly showcase for up and coming comedians. This evolved into a weekly spotlight at the Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip entitled "The Guy Torry Show" where he hosts and produces a comedy showcase featuring an improve comedy troupe. This event was regularly attended by the comedy A-List including Eddie Murphy, Chris Tucker and Chris Rock.

Torry also co-hosted BET's sports show "Ballers," a series that talks about sports in a sexy club environment, along with four-time NBA World Champion John Salley and three-time NFL Pro Bowler Hugh Douglas.

He is currently performing in comedy clubs across the country.

Guy, you should "snope" your info, not just google it. If you "snope" your story of the KKK endorsing Obama, you'll see that it is FALSE. Sorry. You got very defensive after your set, during the judging. Keep your cool.
