got caught up in the 'In Living Color' marathon on BET saturday night. I forgot how much I loved that show. That was my Sunday night ritual for years. Some classic skits and characters, man!

The Brothers' brothers, Men on Film, Fire Marshall Bill, Homey The Clown, Wanda, Bonita!
The Fly Girls. And the beats were always on point even if they had Sean as their fake ass DJ.

Classic material.

I wonder how current comedians like Chapelle and all of them regard Keenan Ivory Wayans. That show launched 15 years ago. Talk about visionary. I can only imagine how hard it was to get a show like that greenlighted in the ealry 90's. It would probably be nearly impossible today. And it wouldn't be the same.

And talk about the careeres they lanched - Damon Wayans, Jamie Foxx, Jim Carey, J Lo. Plus the B-level characters - David Alen Grier (much funnier than he gets credit for), Tommy Davidson even Chris Rock was on there for a second.
Chapelle Block Party looks like the illest...could be our Woodstock or Monterey (wow - I am getting carried away). Production quality looks awesome.
The R on tour with dead prez!!!!
