Justin Williams
Justin Williams
Hailing from Kansas City, Missouri, Justin Williams is black and comfortably middle-class. Justin developed his sense of humor as a defense mechanism because moving between divorced parents caused him to always be the “new kid” in school. So it was either be the nerd or the funny nerd. Justin chose the second option, mainly because Steve Urkel was huge back then. Since moving to New York City, Justin parlayed that awkward energy into a unique stand-up act, complete with deadpan delivery and a knack for sarcastically pointing out the absurd. As one of New York City’s funniest up-and-coming comics, Justin has performed at comedy festivals across the United States and Canada. He has also been featured on Comedy Central’s Jokes.com, Mashable, SiriusXM’s Raw Dog Comedy/Foxxhole Radio/Dean Obeidallah Show, The Elite Daily, Men’s Health Magazine, The Kansas City Star, ‘Morning Buzz Live‘ on VH1, ‘Trial by Laughter’ on Comcast, ‘Laughs’ on Fox and ‘The Comedy Show Show’ on Seeso.

Justin was the host of “Late Night New York” on www.latenightnyc.com and in 2012, released his debut comedy film, “Justin Williams: Black and Comfortably Middle-Class.” It has screened at the Philadelphia Independent, Best Shorts (Award of Merit for Humor) and Friars Club Comedy Film Festivals.

In 2016, Just released his latest project, the humorous documentary “Newark: The Comedy,” which screened at the 2016 Atlantic City Cinefest.
