Davis is enjoying his 9th year in L.A. as a full-time actor, doing everything from film, TV, theater, & commercials, to stand-up comedy, to hosting, and even voice-overs through the William Morris Agency in Los Angeles. It's in the accumulation of this work that Davis finds himself in that odd but respectable place where many people recognize him from something, but they're just not sure what.
Originally from Oklahoma City, Davis directed corporate videos to help put himself through SMU's Meadows School of the Arts cinema production program in Dallas, Texas, and graduated with a B.A., Cum Laude. Then, with a degree to fall back on, Davis rekindled his life long passion for performing, and began touring nationally as a stand-up comedian for 3 years, before settling in Los Angeles.
There he joined Hollywood's premier all-sketch comedy review, ACME Comedy Theater. After two years there in the main company, he joined up with The Groundlings, and graduated from their world renowned 4 level school of improv and sketch.
Along the way, Davis has racked up numerous film and television acting credits, including ABC's Desperate Housewives, Norm, and Politically Incorrect With Bill Maher (sketch-comedy), Sony Picture's feature film, Slackers, Disney Channel's, The Jersey, NBC's Providence, SCI-FI Channel's The Chronicle, UPN's All of Us, and CBS's Walker: Texas Ranger. You may have also seen Davis in his many hero roles for national commercials including Toyota, Budweiser, Circuit City, Sears, and Quaker. Or perhaps you've heard him as the "voice of" companies such as Bank of America, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, and Coors Light.
And of course, Davis was the on-camera host and star of TV Guide's two year running, Best of Late Night TV, a fast-paced mix of original comedy, and highlights from the late night talk show, and sketch-comedy universe (think The Soup, using clips from Letterman, Leno, Conan O'Brien, SNL, etc.).
Now, Davis, who scrimped and saved to make his own little movie, has done just that with his award winning short, Boy-Next-Door, which officially premiered at HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, & went on to win at WorldFest, Hollywood Shorts, Big Bear Lake Intl., and Key West Indie Fest ---- also boasting official selections at 24 other notable festivals, a distributor deal with Shorts International, and a viewer rating of 5 out of 5 stars in the ubiquitous iTunes Store.
Davis is married, has a young son and daughter, continues to live and work in L.A., and attributes his involvement in show business to his Grandfather, Seymour Davis, who was a professional entertainer for 56 years.
