 Roy Wood Jr [Twitter] is a stand-up comic, radio host, and actor.  He's performed comedy on TV shows like Last Comic Standing and Late Show with David Letterman.  Now he can be seen on my show, Sullivan and Son, on TBS.  Season two returns on Thursday June 13th and 10pm!  Roy's great comedy career all started when he was in college and facing jail time thanks to federal charges for credit card fraud.  And it all started out with just wanting some free pizza.

  • Credit card fraud in the '90s.
  • Stealing credit card numbers. 
  • Buying pizzas and food for everyone at college.
