Growing up in Philadelphia, being a comic was one of the last things on the mind of Lawrence Killebrew. Watching others enjoy themselves by engaging in different forms of entertainment always struck a chord with Lawrence.
Lawrence eventually found his niche in the entertainment arts, offering audiences the therapy of a good laugh. The road has had its bumps and bruises along with its triumphs. From getting booed off stages to getting standing ovations; Lawrence has learned to remain humble and continuously work on his craft.
At age 23, Killebrew first burst onto the comedy scene in November of 2004 making his way onto the stages of comedy franchises like the Laff Factory, The Improv, and strings of Rascals Comedy Clubs located all over the United states. Additionally, Killebrew entertained the younger generation at colleges and universities along the east coast.
Since then, he has continued his journey from an amateur open mic performer, to a well-known and respected comedian, touring and opening for a number of comedians, such as Katt Williams, Kevin Hart, and Bill Burr. He has hosted his own comedy show, “Tickle Me Tuesday”, since 2007 and just celebrated its three year anniversary.
In early 2010, Killebrew went on tour in Seoul Korea, along with other comedians to perform for the troops. In addition to comedy, this chameleon is also a guest jockey on Radio One’s 100.3 The Beat on “Philly Home Jamz” on Sunday nights. After successfully surpassing all expectations at Jamie Foxx’s Laffapalooza Comedy Festival in their “New Faces” competition, Lawrence is willing and ready to set his sites on new opportunities and larger projects in order to advance his career in the world of comedy. Lawrence is eager to perform, capable of capturing an audience, and known for his outstanding performances which make the people always want more!
