"In Living Color" Stars Bring Show To Treasure Island

Stars of the hit 90’s sketch comedy show In Living Color, David Alan Grier and Tommy Davidson, will split the stage at Treasure Island, June 24 at 9 p.m.

Grier, one of Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time,” began his career on Broadway as Jackie Robinson in “The First,” for which he was nominated for a Tony Award. He then joined the cast of “Dreamgirls” before starring opposite Denzel Washington in “A Soldier’s Play” and the film adaption “A Soldier’s Story.”

Since then, he has frequented screens large and small with both comedic and dramatic work, including roles in “A Different World,” “Jumanji,” “The Woodsman,” “Crank Yankers,” “DAG,” “Life with Bonnie,” “Boomerang,” “Bones” and, of course, “In Living Color.” Grier has also kept busy on Broadway, earning his third Tony nomination in 2012 for his standout role as “Sporting Life” in “Porgy and Bess.” He recently starred opposite Kerry Washington and Craig Robinson in “Peeples,” and in the upcoming NBC comedy series “The Charmichael Show.”

As a cutting-edge, young standup comic, Davidson earned an ardent following in Washington, D.C. before hitting the road as the opening act for Patti LaBelle, Kenny G and Luther Vandross. Next, he moved to Hollywood and began headlining at a number of comedy clubs, which lead to a starring roll in “Partners in Crime” and his audition for “In Living Color.”

Davidson also had recurring roles on “The Bernie Mac Show,” “Martin” and “Malcom and Eddie” and provided the voice of “Oscar Proud” in the Disney animated series “The Proud Family,” hosted FOX’s “The NFL Show” and recorded three Showtime specials: “On Strength of New York,” “Illin’ in Philly” and “Takin’ it to DC.” His film work includes Spike Lee’s “Bamboozled,” “Juwanna Mann,” “Booty Call” and cult classic “Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls.”
