Comedy with Alvin Williams
If you took CNN and mixed it with Looney Tunes, you've got an idea of what it's like to watch Alvin Williams perform.

From the little things in life that truly matter, to the big issues that shouldn't matter at all, Williams finds the funny in all the places you forgot to look.  Whether it's celebrities, politics,  relationships, sports, family, or random tv commercials, you won't know which direction he's headed next, you'll just be glad you took the ride with him. Born in Chicago, IL, Alvin shared his childhood between Illinois, Tennessee, Colorado, Oregon, Louisiana, and Idaho (yes, Idaho), making him a "native son" in many of his performance destinations.  Growing up he learned to rapidly adapt to his ever-changing environment by turning strangers into friends through laughter, a skill that is noticeably on display as soon as he hits the stage.  He has wasted no time making his presence felt in both the national and international comedy circuits with a non-stop tour schedule that spans the entire United States and Canada to his credit.  In 2008 he hosted the inaugural Mile High Comedy Festival in Denver, CO.  Later that year he became the recurring host of the Shades of Black Festival,   a multi-cultural talent showcase that tours college campuses across the U.S.  In 2009, Alvin became a member of the Shades of Laughs Comedy Tour, and was invited to perform at Laugh Your Asheville Off, the nation's largest comedy festival in the southeastern United States. In 2010, he was listed by TV Guide as "one of the nation's best comedians".

Aside from his live performances, Alvin can also be seen in a variety of national network television appearances, including commercials for Big Brother Big Sister, Columbia Bank, and Powerball MegaMillions. Most recently he has appeared on the new tv show Comedy Unfiltered on Nuvo TV, as well as the shows Comedy Brew and Quicklaffs on Hulu.com, and is the first 4-time Featured Comic on the viral video network Comedy Time TV.
