To say that Bill Bellamy is talented would be, to put it mildly. The hilarious actor and comedian has made himself popular with millions of fans and built a career that spans decades. Among young millennia, Bill Bellamy is best known as the voice of Cousin Skeeter – a puppet who was the star of his own show at the Nickelodeon with the title Cousin Skeeter. The show, which ran from 1998 to 2001, was a hit among teenagers and can be held responsible for the start of Meagan God’s career.
Among the older generation, however, Bill Bellamy attracted international attention when he appeared in Russell Simmons Def Comedy Jam – a show that gave many comedians their breakthrough. During his appearance at his booth in the show, Russell coined the now immensely popular “Booty Call” – a term used to describe a late-night phone call to a friend, acquaintance, or someone important to him with the intention of meeting exclusively for sex.
The expression spread like wildfire and was a testament to Bill Bellamy’s wit and cleverness.
