LANCE CROUTHER (Pootie Tang) was an Emmy and Cable Ace award-winning writer for his work on
"The Chris Rock Show." His career began in Chicago, while a student at
Lindblom High School, as co-founder of the sketch group later known as Mary
Wong. The troupe quickly developed a loyal following, touring American colleges
until the early 1990's. During this time Crouther relocated to New York and
began working regularly as a comedian at the Comic Strip. After conquering the
club and college circuit, Crouther moved to Los Angeles and began working in
low-budget comedies like "Talkin' Dirty After Dark." Ultimately, he
found work as a comedy writer, working on BET's "Comic View" and
Comedy Central's "Comic Justice." His first real break came when he
and his writing partner Ali Le Roi landed a writing gig on "The Chris Rock
Show." Since that time, they have written for countless Chris Rock projects
including "Saturday Night Live," the 1997 and 1999 "MTV Music
Video Awards" and the Grammy winning albums Roll With the New and Bigger
and Blacker. Crouther's film credits include "Class Act" and
"Fear of a Black Hat." He was recently co-wrote the feature film
"Down to Earth," starring Chris Rock.
