Tommy Davidson?s excep?tional range from stand-up com?edy and act?ing to ver?sa?tile music abil?ity have earned him a rep?u?ta?tion as an extra?or?di?nary per?former. Best known as one of the orig?i?nal stars of the hit tele?vi?sion show In Liv?ing Color, Tommy?s reach is built on the show?s and its stars ground?break?ing and inno?v?a?tive talent. David?son started his career as a standup come?dian in Wash?ing?ton DC, earn?ing an ardent fol?low?ing via hard work in var?i?ous com?edy clubs. As one of the cutting-edge, young stand-ups, he was spot?ted by huge con?cert pro?mot?ers, who booked him as the open?ing act for major tour?ing acts includ?ing Patti LaBelle, Kenny G and Luther Van?dross. It wasn?t long before he came to Hol?ly?wood per?form?ing stand-up at a num?ber of clubs, includ?ing the Com?edy Act The?atre, where he met Robert Townsend which led to his first national tele?vi?sion appear?ance with a star?ring role in Part?ners in Crime. This was the con?duit to Keenan Ivory Wayans, who proved instru?men?tal in Davidson?s career by offer?ing him an oppor?tu?nity to audi?tion and join the uniquely tal?ented cast of the most adven?tur?ous prime?time vari?ety show of its day, In Liv?ing Color. He, Jamie Foxx, Jim Car?rey and Damon Wayans made tv his?tory with their originality. Tommy?s impres?sive film debut was oppo?site Halle Berry in Strictly Busi?ness. He imme?di?ately segued select high-profile films includ?ing oppo?site Jada Pin?kett Smith in the roman?tic com?edy, Woo (New Line) and in the provoca?tive urban com?edy, Booty Call (Colum?bia Pic?tures). His cred?its include numer?ous fea?ture film roles from Spike Lee?s Bam?boo?zled, where he received acclaim and praise for his turn as ?Womack/Sleep ?N Eats,? to Juwanna Mann (Mor?gan Creek Pro?duc?tions?) and the piv?otal cameo in Jim Carrey?s Ace Ven?tura II: When Nature Calls, which has become a cult favorite. Davidson?s hilar?i?ous impres?sions of Sammy Davis, Jr., Michael Jack?son and other icons have become infa?mous.
