Named one of Variety's 10 Comics to Watch in 2021, Kountry Wayne (a.k.a. Wayne Colley) has garnered a loyal following from his widely popular digital sketches and hilarious standup, generating an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers within the entertainment industry as one of comedy's most notable rising stars.
Keeping it real, mining comic gold from the everyday and applying his genius for freestyling, Wayne is a master comic storyteller. In 2017 Wayne embarked on the 150-date national "Child Support Tour," selling out clubs and theaters across America. That wasn't just a clever moniker - he's the dad of ten kids and even as he builds his own entertainment legacy, he's all about securing the future for them.
"My hashtag, my mantra, is 'Help is On The Way!' - that's my slogan, I own it, because I believe God's got my back and your back and whatever is stressing you out today, it won't last because help is truly on the way," says Wayne, whose endearingly funny way with English comes from growing up "Kountry" in Millen, GA (pop. 3500), between Statesboro and Augusta. He was given what became his stage name during a stint living and going to school in Savannah in the mid-2000s.
Wayne, along with Kym Whitley, currently co-hosts "I Love Us," a new comedy clip show on BET+. Additionally, Wayne is set to release his first book "Help Is On The Way" in April 2023 - a memoir covering everything from his childhood, past struggles and path to success. Up next, he will be starring alongside Chloe Bailey, Quavo, Mack Wilds, Druski, and more, in Universal Pictures' "Praise This," produced by Will Packer and directed by Tina Gordon.
With his humble roots and unbridled energy, Wayne continues to build his audience with cutting edge yet clean, curse free material whose appeal transcends all cultural lines and is fit for (and often draws) the whole family. All while still posting content online daily.
