Born in the Bronx and raised throughout New York, Dean's travels made it easy for him to communicate with all walks of life. After dividing his college career between classes and a 6-year term in the U.S. Army Reserves, Dean ultimately made the choice to devote his career to comedy. Although his fellow soldiers loved his impressions of their drill sergeant, Dean spent many an afternoon doing push-ups to pay for his comedic talent. That talent paid off and Dean found his career after participating in a college talent show.
Armed with a degree in communications, Dean became an in-demand comic, and landed his first big break on Russell Simmons' “DEF COMEDY JAM.” Though the show is renown for it's blue humor, Dean found a way to break the traditional mold with his mainstream appeal.

tour of the Middle East, performing in front of more than 10,000 comedy fans: beginning in Cairo, Egypt
and ending in Kuwait.

Director Malcolm Lee also chose Dean to finish Bernie Mac's voice/ADR work on "Soul Men" after the comedian’s untimely death.
He spent 2 years workshopping and creating the character of Donkey, leading up to Dreamworks’ SHREK THE MUSICAL on Broadway.
