Pierre
Born to a German mother and American soldier, Pierre was born on May 7 in Killeen, Texas, and when he was 3 weeks old his family moved to Germany. At age eleven he moved back to the states, and resided in Washington DC. His defense against cultural change and bullying was comedy. In the 6th grade he was selected to be on Good Morning America for his humor.

In high school Pierre began performing at comedy clubs in the DC area, with comedians such as: Martin Lawrence, Dave Chappelle, Wanda Sykes and Tommy Davidson. In 1987, after being shot multiple times Pierre decided to pursue comedy seriously. Seeing the success of his peers in Hollywood, he moved west in 1991.
