A fifteen year veteran, Rudy Rush has experienced the full spectrum of the entertainment business from touring colleges and clubs to being the youngest host of the longest running African American syndicated show — Showtime at the Apollo.

Rudy’s brand of comedy has enabled him to work with the likes of Dave Chappelle and Martin Lawrence on major projects while also being able to appear on shows featuring young up and coming comics such as Def Comedy Jam, Jamie Foxx’s Laff-A-Palooza and Premium Blend, just to name a few.

Seeing every experience as a major accomplishment, Rudy also has had his own half hour special on Comedy Central and was a comedic force on the long running nationally syndicated radio show, The Doug Banks Morning Show. There, Rudy was able to blend his comedic timing and wit with his uncanny personality to create a fun filled listening experience for listeners across the country.

The doors of the entertainment business have seen so much, but await for so much more from this young seasoned talent.
