Lafayette Wright is unique in that he is a comedian whose self-obsessions with art and expression fuel who he is both onstage and off. An enigmatic loner offstage, Lafayette has spent close to a decade honing his skill as a favorite on the DC Comedy scene. He now divides his stage time between DC and New York City. Recently he has performed at the prestigious Kennedy Center and hundreds of colleges and universities across the country and on Kevin Hart's new Comedy Central show "Hart of the City", a showcase of different stand-up comedy scenes across the nation.

“We brought Lafayette to our small campus, Wingate University, as our first professional comedian on
campus - and we were beyond impressed! Lafayette had the audience laughing the entire night and
provided a good range of jokes for a diverse group of students to appreciate.”

-Wingate University
