Jerry Minor started his comedy career in Michigan, where he did stand-up and wrote and performed with several sketch comedy groups. He went on to join the very first Second City Detroit cast, where he performed in three revues, including the inaugural Power to the People Mover. He came to Chicago in 1995, where he did two revues on the e.t.c. stage, including Farewell my Compuserve. In Chicago, Minor worked alongside Horatio Sanz, Neil Flynn, and Brian Stack. Minor then did one show at the Second City Toronto, What Fresh Mel is This?, making him one of the few performers to perform at three different Second City locations.
Minor started his television career when he was hired by Saturday Night Live in 2000 and is probably best known for his old school rap character, “Grand Master Rap,” on “Rap Street” with Horatio Sanz. Minor went on to perform on the final season of Mr. Show with Second City alum Bob Odenkirk. He was a correspondent on The Daily Show and had a recurring role on Arrested Development. His other TV credits include being a featured comedian on Lewis Black’s the Root of All Evil, Tina Fey’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, multiple roles on Drunk History and Key & Peele and co-starred as the voice of Denzel on Brickleberry.
His film credits include roles in I Love You, Man, Drillbit Taylor, and Beer League. Minor was also one-half on the musical comedy duo L. Witherspoon & Chucky with comedian Craig Robinson. The duo performed several times on Comedy Central and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
