Like brothers Eddie and Charles Murphy, Chris and Tony Rock, and the Wayans brood, comedy is a family trait of the Joe and Guy Torry household. The siblings have spent their lives in show business. Amazingly, they’ve also managed to remain unscathed by the experience, with careers defined not only by their everyman comedic pursuits, but also by their work as screenwriters and actors. Guy Torry, the younger of the two brothers best known for his roles in “American History X” and “Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood,” brings his stand-up comedy to the Richmond Funny Bone, Thursday through Sunday, Aug. 28-31. His devilish stand-up routines are rooted in the humor of shared experience, and he delivers the belly laughs.
