Londale Theus Jr. is a native of Los Angeles, California where he is an actor, stand-up comedian, improviser and writer. Standing at 6’6” and making rooms full of people erupt with laughter on a regular basis; everything about him is Tall, Dark and Funny.
Growing up, his first love was basketball. He was an accomplished athlete and played Division 1 NCAA Basketball, where his team made it to the NCAA Tournament his freshman year. Junior year he tore his ACL which ended his hoop dreams. For the first time in his life he wasn’t able to play basketball, but it was also the first time in his life he stepped into the acting and comedy world. Shooting comedy skits in his dorm room peaked his creativity and passion for performing, which ultimately led him to enroll in the theatre program at CSU Long Beach. He finished his last two years at CSULB and appeared in such productions as Shakespeare’s As You Like It and Sarah Ruhl’s Late: A Cowboy Song, among others.
Since finishing school, he has dedicated himself full-time to stand-up comedy and has performed at the World Famous Comedy Store, Flappers, and other venues around the Los Angeles area. Much of his material derives from his unique life experiences, especially growing up as a vegetarian since birth that has NEVER eaten any meat, chicken, fish, or eggs.
