PREACHER LAWSON IS A STAND UP COMEDIAN, ACTOR, SINGER, HUMAN, PROFESSIONAL BLACK GUY
I was born In Portland, Oregon, but raised most of my adolescence in Memphis, TN. I moved 20 times before age 10, but if you asked me what city I'm from I'd say Orlando, FL. Because that's where I grew as a comedian.
Growing up switching schools all of the time you had to learn how to adapt. Everywhere I'd go I would learn about different people and different cultures, but I noticed the one universal language everyone had in common was laughter. Which is how I spoke and warmed up to most people. Even when I wasn't the funniest I was still the loudest.
I started writing jokes when I was 16 for about a year, then decided to perform for the first time at age 17 as bet between my mother and I. Best decision of my life.
So far I've been blessed enough to meet a few Idols of mine. I've opened up for many well known comedians. I won the 2015 Funniest Comedian In Florida, the 2016 Seattle International Comedy Competition, and I'm just getting started for 2017. Follow my journey on my Youtube/Facebook Blogs.
