About Shuler King

Comedian Shuler King was born Frank Williams III
in Sumter, South Carolina. He knew at an early age
that he was destined to be an entertainer especially
since he was the kid known for cracking jokes. King
grew up in a traditional 2-parent household in the
Bible Belt of the South, where Faith, Hard Work and
Education were the foundations of what his parents
imparted on him and his two siblings. Comedy is his
passion, but he has taken a rather unusual path to
get to where he is thus far. He graduated from the
University of South Carolina with a B.A. in Media
Arts where he joined The Mighty Illustrious Zeta
Zeta Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity,
Incorporated. In 2013 he graduated from Gupton Jones Mortuary College
with a degree in Mortuary Science. When he isn’t on the road performing
at comedy clubs and special events across the country, King works as a
licensed funeral director and embalmer in Georgia and South Carolina at
his family’s funeral business in South Carolina. He wants to keep his
family’s business and legacy alive. He’s probably the only Comedian/
Funeral Director on the comedy circuit. King has opened for some of the
most notable and talented comedians and comediennes in the industry. He
credits his parents strict yet loving upbringing, his harsh surroundings
growing up and the state of the country today with giving him his comedic
style, which he describes as RAW. King says “Comedy isn’t about being
happy all the time. Comedy is just as much about pain that people endure.
When you hear 20,000 people in an arena laugh at a joke it’s because they
all can relate to experiencing that same pain”. His comedy career began
while he was a Freshman in college, after he took the stage for the very
first time at the NCO Club on a military base and the rest is history. King is
one of the most energetic rising comedians in the business. Although the
comedy business can be very tough and filled with ups and downs, King
credits his unwavering Faith in God as the calming force in his life which
keeps him pushing forward. His hilarious videos he posts on his social
media have quickly become fan favorites. His recent video post about
Donald Trump went viral and was even played on a UK television show.
The future is bright for King.
