If the multitalented Tommy Davidson
hasn't been quite as visible since the groundbreaking sketch-comedy show In Living Color
went off the air, he's been no less busy. In addition to featured roles in Booty Call
and Juwanna Mann,
as well as a seriocomic turn in Spike Lee's Bamboozled
, Davidson spent five seasons voicing beleaguered patriarch Oscar Proud in the Disney Channel's animated series The Proud Family.
Later this year, he'll appear in the comedic blaxploitation homage Black Dynamite
and in Cedric the Entertainer's directorial debut, Chicago Pulaski Jones
. He'll also tape a stand-up special for Comedy Central and voice a lead role in Will Smith's new animated series. First, though, the well-traveled Davidson, a USO-tour favorite, brings his act to KC, opening a four-night stand tonight at 7:30 at the Kansas City Improv (7430 Northwest 87th Street in Zona Rosa).

or call 816-587-4500.
