Joe Torry is the host of Bounce TV's stand-up comedy series "Uptown Comic."

Joe Torry burst into the Hollywood forefront early in his career with a unique skill to connect with various audiences. Before his claim to fame as the host of "Russell Simmons Def Comedy Jam," Torry starred in hit comedies "House Party" and "Strictly Business" and made television appearances on "ER" and "NYPD Blue." From here, he continued to gain significant movie roles in "Poetic Justice," "Sprung," "Tales from the Hood," "Motives" and its sequel "Motives 2," and "Mannsfield 12."

Torry essentially transformed the camera into his own stage as he retained the whimsical characteristics that he utilized as a stand-up comic. Eventually, his talented acts caught the attention of numerous corporations worldwide. In turn, he earned endorsement spots for Anheuser Busch, Pepsi, Nike and Gold Beer.

Prior to Torry's rise to stardom, he was humbly raised with five siblings as Army brats and successfully earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communications at Lincoln University. As a philanthropist, he utilizes his talent and strong family values to benefit communities worldwide but specifically in his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri, when he established the Giving Back the Love Foundation to sponsor youth and community programs. The foundation has assisted in mentoring over 30,000 children and families on the importance of health care awareness and education. His passionate determination to inspire the community to excel has allowed Joe to reach millions through his persistent endeavors.

Currently, Torry is writing his debut book entitled "The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly." The manuscript will detail his journey through the entertainment industry and the many people who have had a tremendous effect in his career and personal life. In addition, he is developing a clothing line specializing in male sportswear and undergarments and recently inked a voicetone/ringtone deal with Universal Music Group. Torry is also exploring his producing side with his first feature film "Pawn Shop," starring legendary actor/comedian Garrett Morris.
