Raneir Pollard: As a Miami, FL native, Raneir Pollard found his home in entertainment. It all started with getting the lead in his preschool play as MLK Jr. Admittedly it wasn't too hard scoring the part as the only black kid in class... nonetheless, the entertainment spark was ignited and he's never looked back since.
Now living in L.A. he performs regularly at The World Famous Comedy store and has appeared at other popular Los Angeles comedy clubs such as The Hollywood Improv, The Laugh Factory and Flappers Comedy Club. He recently made it to the final round of NBC's Stand-Up for Diversity Showcase. He can currently be seen as a feature on the Showtime Stand Up special "Pride Comedy Jam."
