David Alan Grier Dishes on ‘In Living Color’ vs. SNL

Three decades after they appeared together on ‘In Living Color,’ David Alan Grier is now playing Jamie Foxx’s father on their new Netflix sitcom ‘Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!’—despite just an 11 year age difference between the two comedy legends. On this episode, Grier recalls his first impressions of Foxx when he joined that iconic sketch series in its third season and tells some outrageous stories about doing the Super Bowl halftime show, hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’ twice before turning down a spot in the show’s cast and tackling the rape charges against his one-time mentor Bill Cosby on ‘The Carmichael Show.’
