Roy Wood Jr.

 

Remember his name and see him perform up-close before he assumes his rightful place at a larger, more impersonal venue. Roy Wood Jr. has an acerbic charm and quotable, elite wit that I have not seen before (live) from someone of his anonymity; his punchy Birmingham accent and warm, fearless humor make him one of the most promising comedians of the year. He commands the crowd with confidence in the intelligence and substance of his jokes, without resorting to gimmicks or well-trod motifs, and his obscurity adds to the surprising inimitability of his comedy - which is imperfect only in its lack of life-altering enlightenment. However, Wood is best known for his cutting, hilarious prank calls that are available on YouTube and his Web site, RoyWoodJr.com.
