Bill Bellamy

Using his experiences growing up in Newark, Bill Bellamy started doing stand-up while he was a student at Rutgers University. Bellamy quickly discovered how much he enjoyed making people laugh and began honing his skills at small comedy clubs around the country. Shortly after, Bill was making waves in the New York clubs like The Improv, The Comic Strip, and at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles.
In less than two years of launching his stand-up career, Bellamy earned a spot on HBO’s, "DEF COMEDY JAM" where he notoriously coined the phrase “Booty Call.” The now famous late-night rendez-vous moniker became the name for his first comedy special for Showtime; “Booty Call” and it was instantly one of the network’s top-rated specials.
Bellamy became a staple on MTV as one of the first “VJs” on the network. He hosted several of their programming blocks, including "MTV JAMS" and "MTV BEACH HOUSE", while interviewing everyone from the late Kurt Cobain to Janet Jackson. In 1996, Bill landed his own series, “The Billy Bellamy Show.” He debuted his second comedy special, "CRAZY SEXY DIRTY" in May 2012, it was one of the highest rated comedy specials of their respective years on Showtime. In 2017 Bellamy co-starred with Shemar Moore & Nadine Velazquez in the romantic comedy, "THE BOUNCE BACK".
Bill was a recurring co-host on "THE RACHAEL RAY SHOW" and Bill has also filled in for host Billy Bush on "ACCESS HOLLYWOOD" Live and hosted the "ESPY AWARDS" red carpet for entertainment tonight. In 2018, Bellamy had a key recurring role on HBO’s "INSECURE". Amongst his many accomplishments, Bill also headlined a nation-wide comedy tour, "THE STANDING OVATION TOUR", with Tommy Davidson, Sommore, Marc Curry & Tony Rock. Bellamy can next be seen in the horror/thriller film, "A DARK FOE", opposite Selma Blair and Graham Greene. Bill is currently shooting a series regular role in the ABC pilot, "NANA", alongside Katey Segal.
