After honing his chops at Philadelphia’s premiere comedy club, The Laff House, Clint Coley moved to New York City to embark on his quest to become a full-time comedian. Inspired by legendary and greats such as Chris Rock, and George Carlin, Coley won Amateur Night at the world famous Apollo Theater within months of arriving in the Big City at age 23.
With talent for both comedy and business, Coley went on to organize the All Jokes Aside College Tour, visiting 14 colleges and universities throughout the country including UCLA, University of Maryland and Penn State University. He also produced and headlined Babylon Cartel Presents: Clint Coley’s All Jokes Aside in front of a sold out crowd at the Freedom Theater in his beloved Philadelphia.
Coley’s drive got him opening gigs during the Royal Comedy and Mike Epps & Friends tours, landing him on stage with the likes of Sommore, Bruce Bruce, Tony Rock, and Sheryl Underwood.
In September 2011, Coley launched his own comedy series, Chill, It’s Just Jokes at Philadelphia’s Helium Comedy Club. The series quickly expanded to include Los Angeles’ prestigious Hollywood Improv in January 2012. Since then, Coley has opened for fellow Philadelphia son, Kevin Hart, and been crowned “the prince” by King of Comedy, D.L. Hughley.
Coley will host Stand and Deliver, his first headline special for Netflix, on September 22, 2012. Constantly raising the bar, Coley now resides in Los Angeles building on the early successes he’s had in his career. Coley’s distinct storytelling, dramatic punch lines, quick wit and undeniable charisma keep his shows popular attractions within the L.A. comedy circuit and beyond.
