Multitalented actor, comedian, and singer Tommy Davidson introduced himself to the public as one of the founding cast members of In Living Color, going mug for mug with such rubber-faced comedy legends as Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx, and the Wayans family. The mid-‘90s saw Davidson’s transition from the small screen to the big screen as he starred in such blockbusters as Woo, Booty Call, and Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, and his high-energy performances earned him three standup specials on Showtime. The animated laugh-magnet continues to build on his comedic legacy with a live set in the same club that’s hosted renowned jokesters Lewis Black, Gilbert Gottfried, and Jim Breuer. On Wilbur Theatre’s historic stage, Davidson discards all filters and pulls no punches as he pontificates on heavy issues of race, class, and proper brick-laying techniques for traditional comedy stages.<p>
