Thanks for a GREAT show on Saturday night... I know I had a great time, and the students have been talking about it all weekend! You were a great sport - and I think that keeping it very real with the students was most appreciated - and damn funny! Dean of Students, Dominican College

Vince Morris is surrounded by ignorance everyday, and is afraid he is the only one who sees it. With his smooth charismatic style, this Columbus, Ohio native delivers passionate views on race, family, relationships and life. Vince brings his audience into a world where the ignorance we accept daily is challenged by his dangerously funny and controversial material. the best way to describe Vince Morris: "If Malcom X did stand-up comedy."
When asked if Black athletes advertising shoes are role models; Vince responds, “I don’t give a damn what kind of shoe an athlete wears…what kind of shoes do Black surgeons or lawyers wear? What shoe is Johnny Cochran advertising? Now that’s the commercial! When you can get a brother off of a double homicide and the whole world knows he’s guilty- that is a bad ass shoe!”
Vince’s voice is strong and spreading quickly, hitting the road headlining at comedy clubs, theatres, and colleges around the country. Now a Los Angeles resident, Vince has flourished into television on such shows as Comedy Central’, The Late Late Show, NBC’s Friday Night, Premium Blend, BET’s Comic View and HBO. Vince has also been featured at the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival and U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colorado.
Vince Morris provides an even bigger departure from the “Def Comedy Jam” norm. Bespectacled and soft-spoken, he neither looks nor sounds like the stereotypical black comic, and that in a way is the point of his very smart act. New York Times

It was this "edgy" material that got people laughing. "I thought it was wonderful," said a freshman.
One of his jokes was about how he is disgusted by the fact that white CEOs think that the only way to market to young African-Americans is by having music in the background of the commercial, no matter what they are trying to sell.Westminster College- Utah
