About Russ Parr
A true Renaissance man…Russ Parr’s career has evolved from stand-up comedian, to recording artist, to filmmaker, to top-rated, nationally syndicated radio host, heard across America.
Parr has opened for the legendary comedienne Joan Rivers and avoided bombing on stage, thanks to the laughter of friends and family.
Russ landed his own morning show on 1580 KDAY, the first 24-hour, all hip hop station in the country. He used his platform on the airwaves to address gang violence and used the station studios and airwaves to provide gang intervention. He realized that urban radio not only needed to be funny and uplifting, but it also had a responsibility to the black community to be informative.
While at KDAY, Russ launched his own independent record label, Rapsur Records on which he recorded a parody song, called “We Like Ugly Women,” as one of his popular characters, Bobby Jimmy. The record was a hit.
Other hit parodies followed and he later signed with rapper Eazy-E’s label, Ruthless Records. He recorded several EPs produced by Dr. Dre and DJ Pooh. Russ recorded the hit singles “Big Butt,” “Roaches” and “Hair or Weave.” He performed his hit parodies on live shows alongside his label-mates Ice Cube, DJ Yella, MC Ren, World Class Wreckin’ Cru, Michel’le and Yo-Yo.
Russ was later offered the position as morning show host at 93.9 WKYS in Washington, DC. Two years later, the nationally syndicated Russ Parr Morning Show was born and has been syndicated for nearly two decades.
Parr’s forays into television include commercials for major clients like McDonald’s, where he was the original “Big Mac Man“ and later, the dating game show “Get The Hook Up,” which aired on TV One.
With Up To Parr Productions, Inc. in conjunction with Swirl Films, Parr has written, produced and/or directed films and television releases including: The Bobby Debarge Story (2019), Bounce TV’s Saints and Sinners (2017 – current), Ringside (2016), Definitely Divorcing (2016), TV One’s hit series Born Again Virgin (2015), Comeback dad (2014), Hear No Evil (2014), The Fright Night Files (2014), A Christmas Blessing (2013), award winning The Undershepherd (2012), 35 and Ticking (2011), Something Like A Business (2010), Love for Sale (2008), and The Last Stand (2006).
“People feel engaged and part of the Russ Parr Morning Show because they are a part of the show. Our listeners are a part of our family and we’re a part of theirs.” –Russ Parr
