One of the funniest guys performing stand up. I've recomended D.A.G. to many of my friends on several occasions. I'd gladly see him again.

Both David and the femail comedian were very funny and not so over the top with vulgarity. Great time.

He was really funny. Even though profanity was used, he wasn't as vulgar as most of the others I have seen.

Description

DAVID ALAN GRIER Although David Alan Grier has been known for his ability to create comedy and humor, the graduate of the Yale School of Drama has successfully made the diverse jump from theatre to television to film and still alternates between all three. David was seen on Thank God You’re Here, NBC’s improv show with revolving celebrity contestants; David hosts with Dave Foley judging. David is also currently developing Chocolate News at Comedy Central, which David will executive produce as well as host; News is a mock newscast featuring African-American anchors and issues.

Trained in Shakespeare at Yale, Grier began his professional career on Broadway as Jackie Robinson in “The First,” for which he earned a Tony nomination in 1981. He then joined the cast of “Dreamgirls,” went on to star opposite Denzel Washington in “A Soldier’s Play,” and both actors continued their roles in the film version, “A Soldier’s Story.” Grier starred on Broadway in “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.” He has also performed at the New York Shakespeare Festival in productions of “Richard III” and “The Merry Wives of Windsor” at Central Park.

Grier’s television credits are abundant. Grier is well known the co-star opposite Bonnie Hunt as “David Bellows,” on the hit ABC comedy “Life With Bonnie.” He also starred on the hit NBC show “DAG” where he played the title character, as well as being a principle cast member of the acclaimed television series “In Living Color” — where he helped to create some of that show’s most memorable characters. Keeping his close comedic relationship with the Wayans brothers, he co-starred with Damon Wayans in “Damon.” He also starred in the television miniseries “The 60s,” the Disney feature “In Your Shoes,” opposite Vivica A. Fox, and “King of Texas” for cable television.

In addition Grier has gained recognition for his numerous feature film roles, including “Badassss!” for director Mario Van Peebles, “The Woodsman” opposite Kevin Bacon and Mos Def, “Bewitched” opposite Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman, “15 Minutes,” “Boomerang,” “Jumanji” and Robert Altman’s “Streamers,” for which he won a Golden Lion Award for Best Actor at the Venice Film Festival.
