ATL Comic Profile: Lavar Walker

The comedian/doctor will take care of you


Whether the key to a long life is laughter or medicine, comedian and doctor, Lavar Walker, can take care of you. That’s right - the man known for doing the best T.I. impression in America also has a doctorate degree in pharmacy. His dynamic combination of book and street smarts have made Walker one of the most sought-after performers working the urban circuit today. Fortunately for Atlanta’s comedy fans, Walker brings his commentary on political headlines and hood happenings to Uptown Comedy Corner every week as the host of “Wildout Wednesdays.”
