Ralph Harris

Ralph Harris is one of today’s hottest comedic and acting talents! He made his feature film debut in Dreamgirls, a film that has struck gold of the Golden Globe Awards variety. Harris kicks off the movie as the Detroit MC that helps Jamie Foxx hook up with The Dreamettes. Harris recalls with special fondness the nearly 50 takes needed to perfect his character’s gentle caress of Beyonce Knowles' well-known bootylicious behind, but really, who’s counting?

Not one to slow down, Harris has continued his film career momentum, immediately landing his second feature role in the film Evan Almighty starring Steve Carell and Wanda Sykes. No word on whether Harris' gentle caress of Sykes' behind made the final cut.

Harris' jump to the big screen comes after years of successful television work, including appearances on Seinfeld, Parenthood, Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher, Living Single, and In Living Color. No stranger to late night, Harris has been featured on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with Conan O’Brien. However, Harris is probably best known for his starring role in the ABC sitcom On Our Own, which aired during the immensely popular TGIF block on Friday nights, and still currently airs in syndication on TV One.

You can also catch Harris on television in airings of his two previously recorded cable television specials, Comedy Central Presents and the HBO Comedy Half-Hour special.

When he’s not filming, Harris continues to tour the country and perform to sold-out audiences as a stand up comedian, his first career and love. Harris' comedy is character driven, and is influenced by many of the greats, including his idols Bill Cosby and Jonathan Winters.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Harris spends what little time he’s not on the road performing at home in Los Angeles.
