Wil Sylvince

WIL SYLVINCE has a way of bringing people to their feet, both on and off stage. A boxer at heart and a fierce competitor, Wil is 160 pounds of pure funny, although if asked, he would trade his shorts to appear opposite Beyoncé any day. A Brooklyn native to parents of Haitian decent, Wil Sylvince’s eclectic performances can be described as fresh, unique, and disarmingly funny. Audiences love the humorous anecdotes and imitations of his Haitian family and culture. 

Wil was runner-up finalist at the 2010 Boston Comedy Festival and recently named winner of New York’s Funniest Standup. His comedic talent and energy have taken him before thousands of appreciative audiences at Madison Square Garden, the Beacon Theatre, and the Apollo Theater, sharing the stage with comedy heavyweights Damon Wayans, D.L. Hughley, Chris Tucker, Katt Williams, Mo’Nique, and Bill Bellamy. An active supporter of the Haitian community, Wil has performed at several cultural benefits such as The Haiti Benefit Relief Show in NYC.

Wil’s television appearances include BET’s Comic View, The Chris Rock Show, HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, and Showtime at the Apollo. But his camera experience doesn’t end there. Wil, also an actor, starred in Paradise Square Films, I Still Have a Soul, for HBO’s Boxing After Dark—a story about a homeless man who barters all his remaining possessions and resources to enter the ring and fight. Whether Wil Sylvince is on stage, on camera, or in the ring, you’re in for a knockout performance!
