Guy Torry began his acting career around the age of 23. He made minor appearances on shows such as  Martin. In 1997, he became a regular cast member of  UPN's short-lived sitcom  Good News. He eventually started touring all around the world doing stand up comedy, with numerous sold out events and standing ovations. He appeared on Def Jam Comedy, which was another successful comedy show that featured his brother  Joe Torry  as one of the hosts, as well as appearances on  Comedy Central  and  The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Also, he created and hosted a very successful weekly comedy show called Phat Tuesdays, at one of America's most famous comedy hubs The Comedy Store.  Phat Tuesdays  formed in 1995 and lasted for 10 years. Guy Torry was also an original member of the  Kings of Comedy  in 1998, where he hosted for the first year. He could not continue the second year due to a starring role he landed on the UPN action-drama  The Strip. He also wrote for other television series such as  Martin  and  Moesha  among others. He started breaking into films in the mid-1990s and since then has had parts in many films, including  Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood,  Life, and  Trippin'. His most notable role was as a convict named Lamont in  American History X, who helped turn a young  Nazi-skinhead's life around while in  prison. In 2003 Torry's brother founded a film production company called MO Films, and Guy is slated to be an actor, writer, and producer of various projects from the company. He also works on  The Tony Scott Morning Show  along with host  Tony Scott  and Tammy Holland.
