Comedian Tommy Davidson Tells His Story

Today on The Total Media Network's Dr. Christopher Hall Show, Dr. Hall and Neil Haley will interview Comedian Tommy Davidson.

In Living Color just passed its 30th anniversary, and we recently published the memoir of Tommy Davidson, one of the original cast members of the Emmy Award-winning show.

In his candid memoir, LIVING IN COLOR: What’s Funny About Me (Kensington Books) Davidson recounts his powerful life story, from being literally discarded in a garbage bin – saved and raised by his adoptive mother – to being discovered at The Apollo Theatre, to becoming a pop-culture touchstone.

He takes readers from tryouts to its cast of notables (Keenan Ivory Wayans, Jim Carrey, Jennifer Lopez, Jamie Foxx, David Allen Grier, among many!) to its place in television history. A world apart from the predominantly white sketch show SNL, the New York Times calls it “a precursor to “Chappelle’s Show” and “Key & Peele.”

He shares his unique perspective on weathering the rollercoaster ride of his personal and professional life: making it in Hollywood, being an integral part of television history, on fame and family, and the power of positive karma in his life and career.
