Torry Martin is an award-winning actor, screenwriter, comedian and author. In addition to penning humor columns for a variety of national print and online publications including Clubhouse Magazine, On Course Magazine, Enrichment Journal, Cloud Ten Pictures, and Clash Entertainment, Torry is the author of several comedy sketchbooks published by Lillenas Drama Publishers. Martin’s unique sense of humor caught the attention of the producers of the popular children’s radio series, Adventures in Odyssey, who enlisted him to lend his writing skills to the show. Torry went one step further, creating the delightful recurring character of Wooton Bassett.

Martin has written six full feature length scripts with co-writer Marshal Younger, including the comedies “The Boonies”, “Helen of Troy, TN”, “The Last Resort” and “Church Wars”.  The writing team was voted first runner-up in the Write of Passage Screenplay competition for the short film “Covering Your Tracts” and they were semi-finalists in the Kairos Screenplay competition for “Just 18 Summers”.

An accomplished actor, Torry Martin starred in the national touring company of Columbia Artist’s musical comedy, “Around the World in Eighty Days”. He has appeared on The Learning Channel and the Fine Living Network; won top honors as both writer and actor in the Nashville 48 Hour Film Project; and has twice been named Grand Prize Winner for both Acting and Writing by the Gospel Music Association. His most recent acting roles were in the Taylor Swift parody of “The Office” and the feature films “Kidnapped by Grace”, “My Name is Paul”, “Skid” and “11 Seconds”.. A storyteller at heart, Martin has graced the stages of hundreds of secular and sacred venues across the country, sharing a brand of comedy described by author Paul McCusker as, “Garrison Keillor with a spiritual perspective.”

Torry Martin has been profiled in a host of national and regional print and online publications including Today’s Christian, Light and Life, At Home Tennessee and Christian-Movie.com. Martin is an in-demand speaker, performer and instructor at writing and filmmaking conferences across the U.S.
