Olander “Big O” Wilson. Actor/Stand-up comedian/Teacher from the small town of Lake City, South Carolina. He grew up on a dirt road, on a farm in the woods, the opposite of New York City. He's often compared to a young Jamie Foxx meets Ashton Kutcher in Two and a Half Men. He is currently training On-Camera for Film/TV with Mel Mack at Mel Mack Acting Studio.
He developed the passion for stand-up comedy as a teenager but feared the pressure of being on stage. This all changed in 2013 when he watched, Deray Davis's stand up special, Power Play. He credits Deray for the reason he's pursuing stand-up comedy today.
Olander made a life changing, humbling decision to take his talents to New York City post graduation. He took a leap of faith and moved to New York City in 2014. He packed up everything in a Uhaul and drove from South Carolina to New York. He arrived in New York with $50 in his pocket and a dream.
When he's not on stage or the big screen, you can find him in a class teaching Theatre and TV/Film production or in the kitchen whipping up some of the most tastiest meals in the world. The type of meals he coins, "will make you slap yo' momma". Check out his hilarious but informative YouTube channel, "Big O's Cooking 101".
