Wali has played in R&B, Pop, Funk and Jazz bands. Wali toured with the award winning Lawrence Bagwell Gospel Choral before graduating High School. And he was the youngest to ever join the New England Jazz Society. After College, Wali was working on being the best Architect New England has ever known. But the calling for show business was too strong. He played in bands, did session work, but that wasn’t enough. He needed more.
Always having a keen sense of humor, his parents urged him to try stand-up comedy. His first time on stage Wali was convinced that he had bombed, but the manager paid him and asked him to come back every week as a featured act. Wali Collins has been going strong ever since. Wali moved to New York City to work on a show for Comedy Central called “Stand-up Stand-up”. He hosted the largest funniest, most varied collection of stand-up comedians in the world.

Wali Collins is a regular at all of the main stream Comedy clubs in New York City and Los Angeles. He even headlines and tours at Comedy clubs in of all places, Holland.
Collins’ television stand-up credits include HBO, ABC’s “The View”, Comedy Central’s “Tough Crowd”, Commentary on VH1, to name a very few. David Letterman caught Wali’s act and recruited him to warm-up for his show. Later that season Wali was a featured performer on the “Late Show with David Letterman”. Quoted by GQ magazine “Wali’s true purpose becomes evident”.
What about acting? Wali’s one of the lead actors in Independent films, “Clair Makes It Big” and the award winning “Maybe Means No”. He’s also landed a role in the Jerry Brucheimer film “Coyote Ugly”. Walialso was featured in the hit sitcom “Spin City” and is the host of the new PBS series special, “Wild TV”. If Wali’s face looks familiar to you it’s because you’ve seen him in endless amount of national television commercials.
In the words of Robert Klein, “Wali Collins is versatile, smart and very, very funny.” Wali is headed only one way, Stardom. If you haven’t seen Wali do his thing in either stand up or acting, you’re missing out on one gifted man.
