Tone Bell politely declines to ask why the studio smells like Chris Farley.

Born and raised in Atlanta, Bell began his career in Dallas, where he was voted one of the Funniest Comics in Texas. His real-life brand of comedy has seen him succeed on the festival circuit and garner accolades at NBC as the winner of the Stand-Up For Diversity program. Most recently, Bell was featured on VH1’s “Single Ladies,” in commercials for Miller Lite, Verizon NFL Mobile and on his “Watch the Tone” college tour. In addition, he was featured in the docu-style Dodge Dart commercial for Spike TV’s tribute to Eddie Murphy. Bell now resides in Los Angeles and continues to perform stand-up across the country.
