About Aries Spears

Aries was born in Chicago on April 3, 1975, but grew up in New York City. At the young age of six, he remembers being the funnyman of the household and impersonating family members at the dinner table during holidays.

By age 14, Aries was belting out his fresh stylings in front of paying audiences at local clubs around his hometown. He appeared on Russell Simmons’s Def Comedy Jam on HBO and Showtime at the Apollo shortly after that. The word was out about the prodigal superstar from then on, and in 1992, Aries moved to Los Angeles.

At 17, after being spotted in a comedy club, Aries landed a part in the movie Home of Angels, which also starred Abe Vigoda and Sherman Helmsley, but never saw a theatrical release. He then appeared in Out-of-Sync and portrayed Red Foxx in Warner Bros.’s Why Do Fools Fall In Love. In addition, Aries starred alongside John Leguizamo in TriStar’s The Pest and delivered his most notable performance as Cuba Gooding, Jr.’s brother in Columbia’s blockbuster hit Jerry Maguire.

Aries’s fierce momentum landed him on Mad TV as a series regular, where he thrived for eight seasons. Currently, he is developing a feature project based on an original character he created on Mad TV and a thriller about a young Black man immersed in hip-hop culture.

Aries has appeared on many talk shows, including Loveline, Vibe, Keenen Ivory Wayans, Soul Train, and Late Friday. He has also lent his voice to an animated character on C-Bear and Jamal and had a recurring stint on, where he created some of the show’s funniest characters during his short time there.
