Ray Grady started performing comedy in 2002. Since his debut 10 years ago, he's worked alongside some of comedy's elite and has held his own. He landed his first televised performance four years after he started as a comedian on the TV One show, "Who's Got Jokes?" where he met Bill Bellamy. That same year, he was chosen to be one of the “New Faces” of Jamie Foxx's Laffapalooza in Atlanta, GA. Weeks later he was also a Chicago Semi-Finalist for NBC Stand-up for Diversity.
Born and raised in Chicago, Ray Grady relocated to Los Angeles in 2007. Within a few months of being in LA, famous director/producer, Spike Lee saw him perform at The Comedy Store and told him he had a gift. The comedian performed on the third season of Martin Lawrence Presents: First Amendment, which aired on Starz in Fall 2008 and BET's Comic View: One Mic Stand, hosted by Kevin Hart. Other big highlights of his career include: being featured in Mary J. Blige's video for "Each Tear" featuring Jay Sean, which aired on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2010; and being a guest star on the TV One sitcom, "Love That Girl".
Grady is currently touring with fellow comedian, Corey Holcomb and has upcoming dates with Tony Rock. “I'm so excited to have iT Factor Agency working with me to help build my brand. I've been in this business for 10 years, met a lot of people...some serious about working with me, some not so serious. I felt good about iT Factor from the first business meeting we had. They are serious about their clients, their needs, and what they want for their career. I need somebody who is as serious as I am, so iT Factor was the perfect fit," said Ray Grady about his new PR team.
