Kansas City, Missouri native Esau McGraw is one of the original members of the improv group PCP (The Phat Comedy Players) where he often played up to eight characters in one night. Audiences adore his quirky down-to-earth characters, making him one of the most sought-after comics in the country. Esau currently hosts Chocolate Sundaes, one of the most popular comedy shows in Los Angeles at the world famous Laugh Factory. His television credits include Showtime's Big Black Comedy Show, BET'sComic View and One Mic Stand, Jamie Foxx Presents, Russell Simmons Def Comedy Jam and Martin Lawrence presents 1st Amendment Stand-Up to name a few. He made his film debut in Idlewild as the character Stuttering Sonny, has appeared in Dance Fu directed by Cedric the Entertainer and was featured in the hit stage play What My Husband Doesn't Know.
Born Gary Johnson, G-Thang (his nickname) began his career as a stand-up comic, primarily dealing with urban-oriented and racially themed material. He distinguished himself, however, by avoiding much of the raunchiness that characterized his colleagues on the stand-up circuit and by delving into current affairs to a somewhat unusual degree. He projected a slightly hyper and reckless (though not manic) attitude on-stage and in interviews, which became a personal trademark. G-Thang transitioned to motion pictures with a role as Calvin in the no-holds-barred genre spoof Disaster Movie (2008) opposite Kim Kardashian and Carmen Electra.
