Bio:

An uproariously funny comedian, Dustin Diamond is famous for his zany, high-energy performances.

Dustin became internationally known as the humorous “Screech” character on NBC's Saved by the Bell. Dustin is not only one of the most recognizable faces in show business, but a standout in today’s comedy world. He has performed in some of the most prestigious comedy clubs in the United States and Canada including The Improv (LA, Las Vegas, etc.) and Caroline’s in New York City.
Dustin is no stranger to the big screen either. He has appeared in over 18 feature films including Made (which earned him a nomination for Best Cameo at the 2002 MTV Music Awards), and Dickie Roberts with David Spade.
Dustin's specialty is adapting his presentation to the specific theme of the organization. Whether he is speaking at a corporate gathering, performing at a university, or appearing at a comedy club, Dustin provides a tailor-made performance designed for each individual group he speaks to.

“The event was one of the largest attendance-wise in recent years as a handful of events have brought in up to 700 students. But having 1,000 students at any event is something that is rare.” -Christen Jechorek, Kirby Program Board,UMD
“Diamond knew his audience and kept the crowd on their toes. He made it into a fun evening, everyone walked away with smiles after the show.” -Mark Herzog, A&E Reporter
“I have to admit that I have not laughed that hard for as long as I can remember, even laughing to the point of tears. Of all of the live comedy that I have attended, this was by far the best performance that I have ever seen.”
-Kaylan, University of Syracuse

While in the fifth grade, he auditioned for and was selected out of more than 5,000 hopefuls for the role of Samuel “Screech” Powers in the Disney/NBC television series Good Morning Miss Bliss. His character was carried over to NBC’s television series Saved by the Bell which ran for 10 seasons. Saved by the Bell is still seen in syndication 16 times per week in 106 countries.

Dustin has appeared in numerous television shows including The Wonder Years, where he had a recurring role. He has also appeared in various music videos including the 98 Degrees video, “I Do”. One of the many honors that Dustin has received in his 20 year career was recognition at NBC’s 75th Anniversary Celebration.

In addition to acting and screenwriting, Dustin also tours the country as a stand-up comic in colleges and comedy clubs around North America. Dustin began touring in 2000, and is now an accomplished headliner. He has performed in some of the most reputable comedy clubs including The Improv and Caroline’s.

Dustin is also an accomplished musician and songwriter. He has played the bass guitar for 16 years, and was the bass player for his band, Salty the Pocketknife. The band’s self-titled debut record was released nationally in 2003.
