Shuler King - Special Event

Comedian Shuler King was born Frank Williams III

in Sumter, South Carolina. He knew at an early age

that he was destined to be an entertainer especially

since he was the kid known for cracking jokes. King

grew up in a traditional 2-parent household in the

Bible Belt of the South, where Faith, Hard Work and

Education were the foundations of what his parents

imparted on him and his two siblings. Comedy is his

passion, but he has taken a rather unusual path to

get to where he is thus far. He graduated from the

University of South Carolina with a B.A. in Media

Arts where he joined The Mighty Illustrious Zeta

Zeta Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity,

Incorporated. In 2013 he graduated from Gupton Jones Mortuary College

with a degree in Mortuary Science. When he isn’t on the road performing

at comedy clubs and special events across the country, King works as a

licensed funeral director and embalmer in Georgia and South Carolina at

his family’s funeral business in South Carolina. He wants to keep his

family’s business and legacy alive. He’s probably the only Comedian/

Funeral Director on the comedy circuit. King has opened for some of the

most notable and talented comedians and comediennes in the industry. He

credits his parents strict yet loving upbringing, his harsh surroundings

growing up and the state of the country today with giving him his comedic

style, which he describes as RAW. King says “Comedy isn’t about being

happy all the time. Comedy is just as much about pain that people endure.

When you hear 20,000 people in an arena laugh at a joke it’s because they

all can relate to experiencing that same pain”. His comedy career began

while he was a Freshman in college, after he took the stage for the very

first time at the NCO Club on a military base and the rest is history. King is

one of the most energetic rising comedians in the business. Although the

comedy business can be very tough and filled with ups and downs, King

credits his unwavering Faith in God as the calming force in his life which

keeps him pushing forward. His hilarious videos he posts on his social

media have quickly become fan favorites. His recent video post about

Donald Trump went viral and was even played on a UK television show.

The future is bright for King. For more information about his comedy shows
