In living color, the brainchild of Keenan Ivory Wayans, was a weekly comedy variety show that put a new hip urban edge on American comedy. Once being called a “black SNL”, the show grew in fame with satires of popular movies, music and commercials as well as happily exploiting various ethnic stereotypes and repeating sketches like Homey the clown, men on film and Fire Marshall Bill. The show featured the multi-talented Wayans brothers Keenan, Damon, Marlon, Shawn and sister Kim. The show also included many other talented black comedians such as Jamie Foxx, David Allen Grier, along with the shows “token white guy”, Jim Carrey. In Living Color also played host to an array of rap and r&b talent with backup dancing provided by the Fly Girls.
