Picture Bill Cosby raising his kid’s in the hood. If you needed a license to be a comic, this guy has one! Get this… his father was a notorious and very volatile pimp and his mother was a Jehovah’s Witness… a schizophrenic Jehovah’s Witness. Which means, if she knocks on your door, she'll answer it too! Need I say more? If that doesn’t earn him the right to do stand up, then nothing will! As a skilled and accomplished screenwriter Amaru can adapt to his environment and make any situation into a humorous story. His comedic story telling can be mesmerizing at times. The screenwriter in him makes him visual but the kid and the quick wit in him makes for a good time at any comedy club.
Amaru spent most of his life in abusive situations and in and out of foster care homes. At first he thought being in a foster home would be cool. He thought, “Hey it worked for Annie”, but he forgot one thing, she was a cute little red head white girl. The struggle began for this untapped and talented youth right out of high school. Amaru joined the military and when he got out he prayed to God and asked him to send him a beautiful woman so he may blame her for his miserable life. He didn’t know he had to be specific, he just said beautiful.
Later on Amaru experienced everything from being a flight attendant, chemical engineer, to
being a body guard. At the same time he began to explore his talents in screenwriting and acting, Amaru was fortunate to be at Hollywood premieres and rubbing elbows with the likes of Wesley Snipes, Jamie Foxx, Stephen Dorph and Shaq himself. He worked on sitcoms and music videos such as THE PARKERS and JURASSIC 5s, THE INFLUENCE. Not bad, huh?
As you know, with sudden success at a young age, a young wife, three kids, no guidance and real knowledge about life, came the problems of being a man without direction. Having children at a young age stunted and hindered his Hollywood success. But as we all know, with failure comes success. In the mean time Amaru began writing for a female comic known as Celia Fox. He found Stand-up as a way to bring back his quick-witted high school, class clown antics. He saw how exciting and challenging Stand-up was and hopped on stage immediately. Three weeks after he began Stand-up Amaru opened up for, Jurassic 5 at the HOUSE OF BLUES in Hollywood. This is almost unheard of in the business of Stand-up.
Well, now you have him, a man who wasn’t handed a silver spoon in life. Being blessed with all of these God given talents. A writer, poet, music producer, music publisher (SESAC), author, and a Comic. Amaru learned about life the hard way and is able to turn tragedy into humor. He gives you his POV the way it needs to be said. Here is a man who is on the brink of stardom, who will definitely leave a mark in the entertainment world and spread his comedic message. It's only impossible until you do it!!
