About the Author

Professor Ray Grant has an MFA in poetry from the University of Iowa's world renowned Writers Workshop and he became a published poet while a student there. The U of I is also where he received his BA in English. After leaving Iowa he began a teaching career, teaching creative, screenplay and composition writing for 17 years at Tuskegee University, Spelman College and Morehouse College. While teaching at Spelman, a comedy club owner was visiting the campus and he and the young Professor struck up an amusing conversation. The comedy club owner invited The Professor to try his hand at standup comedy at his local Atlanta comedy club. In one year of failing and trying over and over again week after week to make the most time hostile audiences laugh, he was discovered by a TV comedy scout and The Professor was selected to make his TV standup comedy performance debut on HBO in 1996. Since then he's gone on to travel the world performing standup while continuing to teach. He also continued writing and performing poetry as well and made a TV appearance on TVOne's Verses & Flow. He met his wife, Paula, while performing standup at an Atlanta comedy club. Three years later they married and had two children, a girl, Rae, and a boy, Donovan.
