This latest stint of performing stand up comedy began at the open mic slot for Chocolate Sundaes at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood, CA. Two performances later, Walter was shown so much love from the all-black audience that he was a made a Chocolate Sundaes regular. Shortly thereafter, he became a regular at the Laugh Factory. This led to hosting and booking the only comedy show in Koreatown at Cafe Bleu. He was the most bleeped comic on Comedy Zen - an accomplishment he relishes to this day. As a comedy sketch actor, he’s performed with Wayne Brady, Cedric The Entertainer, Mark Curry, Kevin Hart and Damon Wayans. And his voices can be heard on the Tom Joyner Morning Show and the Xbox video game: Bruce Lee: Quest Of The Dragon. Currently, Walter performs at the Laugh Factory, Improv and numerous spots around the country. You may also catch him touring with Slanted Comedy.
