"Comedy comes natural for Lake City native Olander Wilson. In school, he was the class clown. He was the funny one of the family. But initially, he didn’t pick acting as a career choice.

'I wanted to play football,' Wilson said. 'And if that didn’t work out, which it didn’t work, I wanted to build computers.'

So he attended the University of South Carolina and majored in computer science. But it wasn’t long before Wilson switched his major to theatre and embarked on an acting career."
