Rell Battle, who plays Sweatpants
What’s his deal? Hailing from Washington, D.C., Rell's first glimpse into the acting world began when he studied theater at the University of Maryland. What he learned there led him to his next two gigs—hosting his own late-night radio show on WJFK 106.7 FM and later, working for MTV.
After moving to Los Angeles to pursue standup, Rell was chosen to perform as a "New Face" at Jamie Foxx's Laffapalooza Festival and he's kept audiences in stitches ever since.
Résumé: TV credits include Coming To The Stage, Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battle—which he created, produced, and wrote—and various guest appearances on Key And Peele and The Eric Andre Show.
Words to live by: "I miss the old Kanye." (@RellBattle)
