Hosted by Doc Willis
Doc Willis grew up on the mean streets of Detroit. Doc moved to California to get out of the gang life and pursue his dream of acting and performing as a stand-up comedian. Doc's comedy derives mostly from his past where he talks about when he was in a gang, sold drugs, etc... You can see him on Jeff Garlin’s “Handsome: A Netflix Mystery Movie”, Youtube’s “Daddy Knows Best” with Steve Rannazzisi, his voiceover work on Adult Swim’s “The Jellies” with Tyler The Creator. He’s been on the podcasts of Ari Shaffir’s “Skeptic Tank”, “The Church Of What’s Happening Now: with Joey Coco Diaz", “Bad Friends” w/Bobby Lee and Andrew Santino, and his own podcast “La Vida W/Doc Willis.” Doc has become an amazing human being and an absolutely hilarious comedian. There is no one else we would rather have to host this awesome SLOFunny lineup.
