Wood, a native of Birmingham, Alabama, began his comedy career in 1999 at the age of 19 while attending Florida A&M University. In October 2006, Wood made his network television debut on “The Late Show with David Letterman.” In 2008, he appeared on HBO’s historic “Def Comedy Jam” and was later selected by America as one of the top three finalists on “Last Comic Standing” on NBC. Wood has appeared on “The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” TBS’ “Conan,” “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” He also performed for the troops on USO tours to Guam and The Philippines. Wood appeared at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in the New Faces Showcase, an appearance that lead the Hollywood Reporter to call Roy a "standout". He has also been a regular contributor to ESPN’s Sports Nation. His first full comedy CD, 'Things I Think, I Think,' was released in 2013.
