Raised by politically and socially active parents, Williams did well in school receiving outstanding grades and a slew of academic honors. It was late in his teens that he moved to San Francisco where he temporarily joined the Nation of Islam and honed a standup act at local nightclubs. Some of the notable venues that Williams hosted in the late ’90s included the Hollywood Park Casino, The Icehouse, and The Improv, as well as he became a staple on BET’s standup programs.
