Suli McCullough is a talented writer/actor/comedian whose star is very much on the rise. Most recently, he was a writer on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
However, he’s probably best known for his portrayal of Mouse on The Jamie Foxx Show or Crazy Legs, the dude in the wheelchair, in the Wayans Bros. spoof, Don’t be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood.
"Don’t be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood is one of those comedies that has a large cult following. People come up to me all the time asking, 'Where's your wheelchair?' Or if I will do the Crazy Legs signature laugh for them. It’s one of those movies fans love to watch over and over again.”
McCullough’s stand up career began while he was still a student at the University of California, Los Angeles. He opened for Jerry Seinfeld and was immediately signed by his managers.
Since then, his comedy has been showcased on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Last Comic Standing, and Comedy Central.
He has also appeared in the feature films Scary Movie 2, Run Ronnie Run, The Cable Guy with Jim Carrey, What’s Love Got to Do with It, and Terminal Velocity with Charlie Sheen. Television credits include Seinfeld, Angel, The Larry Sanders Show, My Wife and Kids, and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
In addition to McCullough’s work in front of the camera, he has amassed some impressive writing and producing credits as well. He’s worked for the past six years as a consulting producer on the ESPY Awards. He has written for past hosts Samuel L. Jackson, Jimmy Kimmel, Lebron James, Matthew Perry, and Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx. He was the head writer the two years Jamie Foxx hosted.
He was a writer on the American Music Awards and DL Hughley’s Weekends at the DL. Other writing credits include the BET Awards 2009, Last Comic Standing season six, and the MTV Video Music Awards 2001. He was also a consulting producer on Jamie Foxx’s HBO special Jamie Foxx: I Might Need Security as well as Cedric the Entertainer’s HBO special Cedric: Taking You Higher.
Finally, he co-authored a book entitled 150 Ways to Tell If You’re Ghetto. A humorous look at those little things we all do that can ultimately be traced back to the ghetto. For example, “You know you’re ghetto…if you put sugar on Frosted Flakes.”
This fall, McCullough begins writing on George Lopez’s new talk show for TBS, Lopez Tonight.
