Jerry Brooks was born on Dec. 16, 1964 in Plymouth, NC and raised in Mount Vernon, NY. He adopted the stage name J.B. Smoove when he began his entertainment career as a hip-hop dancer and stand-up comedian. One of Smoove's earliest onscreen appearances was performing stand-up on "Def Comedy Jam" (HBO, 1992- ) in 1995. After playing minor characters in feature comedies like "Pootie Tang" (2001) with Chris Rock and "Mr. Deeds" (2002) with Adam Sandler, Smoove struck comedy gold in 2003 when he was hired as a writer on "Saturday Night Live." He also had bit roles on the long-running sketch comedy show, which included playing Jimmy "J.J." Walker for a "Good Times" (CBS, 1974-79) parody.
