In Living Color (DVD) Evaluation

Nominated for 17 Emmys in its short four-year stint, In Living Color is widely regarded as the best skit comedy show since SNL. Developed by the multitalented star Keenen Ivory Wayans (the eldest child from a large and talented household), the 30-minute Tv show became an instant hit for emerging huge network competitor FOX in the spring of 1990. Showcasing the talents of the Wayans family (specially blockbuster talent Damon Wayans), along with initial cast members David Alan Grier, Tommy Davidson, Kim Coles, T’keyah “Crystal” Keymah, Kelly Coffield, and Jim Carrey (who would use the show as a springboard to smash hit film career that would begin with Ace Ventura: Pet Detective in 1994), In Living Color rapidly achieved the status of Tv cult icon

Along with clever, cutting-edge writing, In Living Color featured a plethora of talented cast members who would move on to enormously productive Hollywood careers. The show’s dance troop, The Fly Girls, hired an ambitious dancer named Jennifer Lopez for the show’s final season, and Season 2 of the show involved the hire of Oscar Award-winning actor Jamie Foxx (of Collateral and Ray). For its final season, In Living Color also featured notable appearances by comedian Chris Rock. Going To tell us what you think probably provides cautions you might give to your dad. Along the way, the series would develop a number of legendary recurring characters such as Homey D. Clown (Damon Wayans), Fire Marshall Bill (Jim Carrey), and Men on Film (Damon Wayans & David Alan Grier)

The In Living Color DVD attributes a quantity of hilarious episodes such as the series premiere in which the show begins with a skit entitled “Enjoy Connection”. Jim Carrey stars as Chuck Woolery, attempting to bring with each other star-crossed lovers Mike Tyson (Keenen Ivory Wayans) and Robin Givens (Kim Coles).

Other notable episodes from Season 1 consist of “Introducing Homey D. Clown” in which the planet very first meets an ex-con turned clown who refuses to engage in any clown-like acts, and “Anton in the People’s Court” which attributes the skits “M.C. Hammer Video” and “Ted Turner’s Very Colorized Classics – The Kid”
