All comedians want to be funny, but few can be described as truly hilarious. Bruce Bruce can claim an elusive ability to make audiences break into laughter not only during his performances, but also for hours afterwards as they recall things he say. Bruce is irreverent and lovable at the same time, with girth to match his huge personality and stage presence. Bruce arrived on the comedy scene with natural talent that eventually garnered the highest ratings ever as host of Black Entertainment Television on its tenth anniversary Comic View program. He is so good at comedy he makes it look effortless. With passion for his craft, he infects his fans with laughter, leaving them wanting more. Bruce Church was born in Atlanta, Georgia, but the date of his birth is a closely guarded secret. Bruce always knew he was funny, but he and his family never thought of it as something he could do professionally to make a living. That's why we have to start paying attention to our kids, Bruce said in an interview with Tavis Smiley on National Public Radio. Bruce develops his comedy skills as he watches his uncles. They also had the ability to keep family in stitches. Bruce would joke about them around the house and emulate them and comedians he saw on Television. Prior to his Comedy circuit debut, Bruce worked as a barbeque chef for several years. He grills rib bones as he tickles funny bones of his customers. Next, he worked for Frito-Lay, selling their products, stocking shelves, and performing at corporate meetings. He told Smiley that he ate as much as he sell, but people laughed the whole time. During that period, Bruce meets man at work that he once thought to be racist. A man called Bruce into his office one day and urged him to try his Comedy on Stage. He had listened to Bruce's jokes for some time and was convinced Bruce could use his talents for profit. Bruce followed man's advice and, from the first time he stepped on stage, he realized that comedy was the path his life should take. In the early 1990s, Bruce landed regular gig performing in Atlanta at the Comedy Act Theater. It was during this time that he caught the eye of talent scouts at BET. BET's Coast to Coast program's search for comedy talent found Bruce as he auditioned several times at various venues around Atlanta. He was determined to get the show's attention and make cut. BET took notice and televised three of his routines. His next break came when he won a spot on HBO's popular Def Comedy Jam Television Show in 1992, solid sign that his star was rising in the business of comedy. In 1994, Bruce appeared on Showtime at Apollo, hosted by comedian Steve Harvey. Bruce was now appearing with big names in business. His performance earned him two more invitations to return in 1995.
