Comedian Tommy Davidson doesn't discriminate. He'll find something funny in everyone and everything, from black people to white people to Obama and even dinosaurs. This comedy vet has been doing stand-up since the 80's and is widely known for his impersonations, made famous on In Living Color in the '90s. You can also catch him in chuckle-worthy flicks like Booty Call, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls and Juwanna Mann.
Who were some of your comedy heroes growing up?
Richard Pryor number one. Bill Cosby. Eddie Murphy.
So not funny! Reports claim that actor/comedian Tracy Morgan was booed and bashed after a stand-up routine in Nashville, Friday 06/03/11 went out of hand. Comedy patrons were not prepared for the hateful tirade, whether or not he's joking, the 30 Rock star was spewing out against the LGBT community.
Unfortunately, not all members who witnessed the fiasco were disturbed. In fact, they actually followed up his insults with cheers, audience member Kevin Rogers (from Truth Wins Out) says. Alas, this is not-so-liberal Tennessee.
Greg Giraldo was rushed to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Jersey Saturday for undisclosed reasons. At the time he was staying at a nearby hotel for a four-night act at the Stress Factory comedy club in New Brunswick.
Fans were told before the Saturday night show that he was rushed to the hospital and would not be performing. A source from his management stated, “It was an accidental overdose...”
Giraldo was only 44.
