LONDALE THEUS JR
Standing at 6'6", with a Dad who was drafted in the NBA, and an Uncle who was an NBA All-Star, I used all that Height Privilege...to tell jokes.
I'm a theatrical, physical comedian who loves using act outs, characters and strong emotion to tackle racial and social issues, as well as as dive deep into my personal life:
Growing up in a Black Vegan Family, Going to Defund The Police protests even though my Dad was a Cop, Being Celibate for 8 years before getting Married, Being the Tallest person in Japan and India, Flying to Africa for the first time, and more!
Keep reading to learn more about my acting career in TV/Film, Commercials, and Theatre as well as my Comedy Career in Stand Up, Improv and Sketch. I also founded the comedy school You Got Jokes Academy where I teach comedy writing and performing.
Listen to my story in this amazing podcast as I share how playing D1 College Basketball (my dream) ended abruptly after tearing my ACL, how divine intervention guided my transformation from a broken athlete to a joyful actor and comedian, and the spirituality that grounds me through this journey.
TV / FILM
I got my first break into TV acting in sketches for "Chelsea Lately", "The Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno", and "Conan".
After that, I started recurring as several characters in IFC's beloved "Comedy Bang! Bang!" with Scott Aukerman, and working on sitcoms like CBS's "2 Broke Girls", FOX's "Grandfathered", playing opposite Zendaya in DISNEY's "K.C. Undercover" & more.
I worked with Directors Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg while guest starring in HULU's "Futureman", and show up as Playa Plumba in Issa Rae's hit HBO series "Insecure."
I was also reunited with my comedy peers Jocelyn Deboer and Dawn Luebbe while working on their IFC film "Greener Grass" which can now be seen on HULU.

I started off my career playing basketball players in several commercials for "Mini Cooper" (which aired during opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics), "Skittles", "Footlocker" w/ Dwight Howard, and "State Farm" w/ Chris Paul.
