Reginald Ballard is an American character actor and comedian from Galveston, Texas, who is best known for his recurring role as Bruh-man in the Fox sitcom Martin. Spurning overtures from pro-football, Ballard headed to Hollywood to pursue his acting career. His film debut was in 1989's Lock Up. He has appeared in many different television shows, such as Veronica Mars , The Bernie Mac Show, The Parkers, Sister, Sister, Just Jordan, and the short-lived show, Crumbs. He co-starred in the independent film Big Ain't Bad as Butch.
Currently, Ballard is performing stand up comedy. He said the acting bug bit him after taking a theater class in college, "getting lost in a scene", and listening to the audience applaud.
