"Shocking and subversive..."
The show that launched the careers of the Wayans Brothers, Jaimie Foxx, and Jim Carrey, IN LIVING COLOR is sketch comedy at its best. Infused with a ghetto sensibility, the show debuted with an exceptionally talented cast and some hot choreography by Rosie Perez for the Fly Girls. Keenan Ivory Wayan's was the writer and creator of the series, consistently delivering hilarious skits and developing recognizable character that hold up remarkably well years later. These include Damon Wayans and David Alan Grier's outrageously flaming "Men on Film" and Damon's boozy "Homey da Clown," as well as Jaimie Foxx's outrageous "I'm ret' t' go" character Wanda. Jim Carrey's Fire Marshall Bill is the recognizable ancestor to ACE VENTURA. Season two features a guest appearance by Queen Latifah, spoofs on Oprah, Arsenio Hall, and Vanilla Ice, and recurring favorites such as "Snack n' Shack," "The Brothers Brothers," "Fire Marshall Bill," and "Funky Fingers Productions," among many others.
