He has been described by The Hollywood Reporter as "a standout," and Entertainment Weekly called his brand of thought provoking comedy "charismatic crankiness." In 2016, Variety named him one of "10 Comics to Watch." He filmed his first one-hour stand-up special, Roy Wood Jr.: Father Figure, at Center Stage in Atlanta, which premiered on Comedy Central last year.
