You might know comic actor Reginald Ballard best as “Bruh-man from the fifth flo” on the Fox sitcom Martin. (Bru-man wasn’t real smart; he usually held up four fingers when he said “fifth flo.”) Ballard grew up in Galveston, where he was an all-district linebacker for Ball High School. From there he went to Southern Methodist University on a full football scholar-ship. He transferred during his senior year to the University of Missouri, where he appeared in a school production of A Soldier’s Story. That led to his film debut a few years later in Lock Up, then appearances on television’s Veronica Mars, The Bernie Mac Show and, of course, Martin. Ballard’s stand-up is sure to include some memories of his time in Galveston. These days he lives in Pasadena…California…not Texas.
