About Walter Latham

Walter Latham Biography

Walter Latham is known as "The King of Comedy" because of the everlasting mark he has left on the world of urban comedy. Latham changed the comedy landscape by taking urban comedy out of small theaters and into large-scale arenas and stadiums. He is credited with launching the careers of award-winning actors and comedians such as Tyler Perry, Chris Tucker, Steve Harvey, MoNique, Cedric The Entertainer, and the late Bernie Mac. His "Kings of Comedy" tour sold out all major arenas throughout the country, outselling all Pop and R&B events at the same time, and was one of the highest earning tours in US history. "The Queens of Comedy," featuring Academy Award winner Mo'Nique, and "The Latin Kings of Comedy," starring George Lopez, were both conceived and produced by Latham. He and MTV Films co-produced the award-winning film The Original Kings of Comedy, directed by Spike Lee and released by Paramount Pictures. It was the first urban comedy tour film to top box office in the United States, and it still ranks second to Eddie Murphy's Raw to this day. The film made over $38 million and is regarded as a comic classic, while the soundtrack was published by Universal Records and garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Spoken Comedy Album. The Crown Royal Comedy Soul Festival, a 20-city tour including chart-topping musical performers like as Earth, Wind & Fire and The Isley Brothers, as well as comedians Rickey Smiley, Adele Givens, and Earthquake, was created and produced by Walter Latham Entertainment. Executive Latham Produced two seasons of HBO's smash comedy series "P. Diddy Presents the Bad Boys of Comedy," as well as five one-hour highly rated "toasts" of some of pop culture's greatest celebrities. Latham Entertainment projects have grossed over $250 million globally to date. In 2012, Latham partnered with YouTube on a new comedy channel that delivers urban comedy programming 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and features content from Lathams previous productions such as Bernie Mac, Tyler Perry, MoNique, and others, as well as new content from Michael Blackson and Tara Miss P Powell, in addition to original programming such as Comedy After Dark, a standup special hosted by hip-hop Queen Trina, models Rosa Acosta and Carolina Catalino, Latham continues to sign distribution partnerships with Hulu, Daily Motion, Vessel, and others, and at 45 years old, he is still a trendsetter. Latham has nearly single-handedly revolutionized the face of urban humor, leaving an everlasting impression on the evolution, creation, and global effect of urban comedy. Latham is the founder and chairman of The Walter Latham Foundation, which yearly awards scholarships to deserving youngsters and promotes youth-oriented activities.
