Brad Williams is a comedian and actor from Orange County, California who got his start after a chance encounter with fellow comedian Carlos Mencia. While attending one of Mencia's comedy shows, he was invited onstage and impressed the veteran funny man with his quick jokes and ability to laugh at himself. Williams was subsequently invited to join Mencia on tour as an opening act and the two comedians have been touring together ever since. Using comedy as a way to make light of the everyday challenges and encounters he faces, William largely focuses on dwarfism in his brand of comedy. He released his debut full-length album Coming Up Short, in 2011 and shortly after began hosting a podcast called About Last Night with Adam Ray.
