You can also see him in JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH.

Rel’s breakout role as TSA agent Rod Williams in the Oscar-winning GET OUT ushered Howery into superstar status. Winner of the Best Comedic Performance in a Movie at the MTV Movie & Television Awards, nominated for an IMAGE Award for Best Supporting Actor, and crowned Bernie Mac Comedy King of the Year, Howery is experiencing success at a rate bestowed upon few in Hollywood’s history.

Howery executive produced and starred in his own Fox sitcom, REL.  He also starred opposite Sandra Bullock and Trevante Rhodes in BIRD BOX, which smashed Netflix viewership records when it premiered in December. His next film, BRITTANY RUNS A MARATHON, won the Audience Award at Sundance and was quickly acquired by Amazon for wide release. Up next, you can see Lil Rel starring opposite John Cena in VACATION FRIENDS; opposite Ryan Reynolds in FREE GUY; opposite Issa Rae in THE PHOTOGRAPH; opposite Kevin Hart in FATHERHOOD; and opposite Ben Affleck in DEEP WATER. In 2018, Howery played the lead role in the film UNCLE DREW, and guest-starred alongside Issa Rae in HBO’s INSECURE. Lil Rel starred in the critically-acclaimed NBC comedy series THE CARMICHAEL SHOW as Jerrod Carmichael’s brother Bobby. Rel also was an executive producer, wrote and starred in the “gleefully absurd” (Chicago Sun Times) weekly sketch comedy show FRIENDS OF THE PEOPLE on TruTV. Rel’s first hour standup special, RELEVENT, premiered in 2015 on Comedy Central. The hour was executive produced by Kevin Hart and was named one of “The 10 Best Stand-Up Specials of 2015” by Vulture. His second special, LIVE IN CRENSHAW, premiered on HBO in 2019 and was rated  #1 best Comedy Special of 2019 by Vulture Magazine & UPROXX.
