In an interview, he said his mother always said, “Get your education, because they can never take that away from you. Dream as big as you can dream.” So he tried never to get confused with his academic path.
Racist attitudes are ubiquitous around the world and cannot be erased. Racism never ends until the white cars have black tires. As an African American, he had to tolerate the racist encounters.
But with his painstaking effort, despite his complexion, he achieved tremendous success. His parents always showered him with their blessings and now his life is enriched with successful events.
That’s why his mother always advised him not to jeopardize his studies, because education is the one thing none of us can steal. His interest in economics shows his clear career path. “When I graduated, I thought I was going to work on Wall Street.
That was the image I had. A nice job at a good company and working my way up”. He recalled in the Los Angeles Times. His cousin is the famous basketball player Shaquille O’Neal.
Bill Bellamy Career Begins
His career started when his friends noticed his way of comedy, his flair and his ability to deal with comedy. They always said Bill is a fool and that he is retarded. When he experienced his abilities on stage, he convinced himself that he had a chance.
Bellamy realized his prowess in comedy when he joined a male Pageant at Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. “Everyone was dancing and singing and playing instruments for the talent segment of the program and I just came out and made people laugh and it came out”. He informed the Cincinnati Call and Post.
While gaining confidence as a stand-up comedian, Bellamy clings to the traditional American dream of getting a good job, getting married, having kids and pets. But he soon realized that he wanted to continue his career in entertainment rather than become an economist and with the blessings of his parents, he started to walk in a different direction in search of a light.
By doing his job and performing in amateur stand-up competitions and winning them all, Bellamy made his way into the world of recognition.
“When I started winning, I realized comedy was my calling,” he says. The win, where he scored $5,000 in a comedy contest at the Manhattan club, opened several doors for him. His big break came when he appeared on the television show Showtime at the Apollo.
His steadfast refusal to rely on profanity set him apart from other comics of his day. Cosby’s stark influence was reflected in Bellamy’s comedic approach. “Funny is funny. You don’t have to curse people to death to be able to laugh.”
The things I talk about in my comedy are my experiences. I’m not making a conscious effort to make any particular kind of comedy. I just do what I know.” Bellamy quoted. The biggest call came for Bellamy, to host MTV Jams, an R&B/Hip-Hop video and interview show that gave him the opportunity to chat with superstars during the day. Hosting Jams was indeed a dream come true.
From there, Bellamy received immense love and ardent affection and he eventually made his career soar with his unencumbered modesty and he never had to return to his life.
