Wil Sylvince, a Haitian-American comedian, launched his career with hilarious tales of teenage angst, using frenetic gestures and facial expressions to provoke laughs.
His comic hero, Richard Pryor, inspired Sylvince to use Haitian family life as comic fodder. He connected with audiences on a universal level, his growing popularity leading to Comedy Cellar gigs, and tours with Damon Wayans.
He is now preparing a script for filming about a Haitian man in America, who dreams of becoming a fighter.
