Before comedy became a priority, Horton endeavored to play for the NBA and played basketball for Simon Gratz High School in North Philadelphia, the same school retired NBA notables Rasheed Wallace and Aaron McKie played for. Horton’s acting skills and comic charisma resonated so much with his professors in his drama classes that they urged Horton to foray into stand-up comedy as a way to break into acting. It wasn’t until 2001 when a friend dared Horton to take the stage at the Laff House Comedy Club in South Philadelphia that Horton’s love for laughter was ignited to a new level. Horton is currently one of the most respected Headliners in comedy and his career gained major momentum in 2011 when he was featured in the box-office hit movie Laugh at My Pain, starring comedian Kevin Hart, a movie based on the record-breaking comedy tour. Horton made his network debut on BET’s Comic View in 2002, just six months after he started his career as a comedian.

Horton went on to perform at various comedy venues and landed a spot on Coming to the Stage in 2004 and was a semifinalist. In 2005 Horton was a runner up in the Bud Light comedy competition. And in 2008 he returned to BET and performed on the One Night Comedy Stand. Horton has also quickly evolved into one of the most popular and successful college acts, performing at more than 100 colleges and universities. Horton’s extensive tour schedule has taken him overseas and in 2010 he performed for the troops in Korea. Before his big-screen debut, Horton toured with comedian Kevin Hart and was the Opening Act on the I’m a Grown Little Man tour for four years.

He went on to open for Hart on the Seriously Funny comedy tour, and subsequently the Laugh at my Pain and Let me Explain tours. The Laugh at my Pain tour was turned into the successful full-length feature movie with Horton showcasing his acting skills by performing skits alongside Hart and other fellow comedians. This year Horton shot his first independent project, a movie called Sucka 4 Love, due out in 2013. He also filmed another independent film called House Sitter in Los Angeles. He is also slated to appear in the coming movie Ride Along starting Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, due out in 2013. And he will appear in Kevin Hart’s upcoming movie Let Me Explain. He also made a debut appearance in Nick Cannon’s wildly popular Wild n Out. Horton’s punctuated comedic style and sharp material have proven to be greatly appreciated by his audiences, young and old.
