In Living Color

  1. Remember that show?

    Homie D. Clown?
    Fire Marshall Santa?
    Men On Film?

    I was in sixth grade when I started watching it. (It seemed like everyone else in my class watched it, so I wanted to as well. I didn't get most of the jokes, but some of it I found really funny.)

    Looking back on it, watching the Men On Film skits, I understand the jokes and I find it that much more humorous.

    It launched the careers of Jim Carrey (credited as James Carrey), Shawn Wayans, Keenan Ivory Wayans, David Allen Grier, Chris Rock, Marlon Wayans . . . . the list goes on and on.

    Jennifer Lopez came in as a Fly Girl in the third season.
     
  2. Homey Claus: Okay kids repeat after me. Silent night.
    Kids: Silent night.
    Homey Claus: Homey's night.
    Kids: Homey's night.
    Homey Claus: All was calm.
    Kids: All was calm.
    Homey Claus: All was bright... Bright like that damn light that cop shone in my face. He knew I didn't do it. HE KNEW I DIDN'T DO IT. I said BACK ME UP.
    Kids: All was bright... Bright like that damn light that cop shone in my face. He knew I didn't do it. HE KNEW I DIDN'T DO IT. I said BACK ME UP.
    Little Girl: He knew I didn't do it.



    Dwayne Edwards: This title gets the around the world and back snap!


    Bonita Bitrell: Oh lawd, there's Ms. Jenkins.
    [waves to her]
    Bonita Bitrell: Hello Ms. Jenkins! Mmm, mm, mm. That's one fine woman there. Yes sir. Better NO one say nothin' bad about Ms. Jenkins. Uh-uh. Coarse her breath smells so bad it could singe your nose hairs. But I ain't one to gossip, so you didn't hear that from me.
     
  3. Keenan also launched Jamie Foxx's career on this show as well. I still watch the repeats. Too funny!
