THIS SHOW WAS REALLY GOOD. EVERYONE WHO CAME ON THAT STAGE WAS FUNNY. WISH SOME OF THE AUDIENCE DIDN'T INVOLVE THEMSELVES IN THE SHOW BY SHOUTING OUT BECAUSE IT DID HONESTLY RUIN SOME OF THE JOKES! NEXT TIME RESPECT THE COMEDIAN AND KEEP YOUR...continued
If there was one phrase to describe James Davis it would be: Fresh to Death. Whether it’s his look, on stage persona or writing style, James is always “Fresh.”
God introduced James Davis to the power of comedy in high school. Outside of class, Crossroads High School (Santa Monica, California) was a non-stop comedy club for James and his friends. As financially aided black students in a predominantly white, upper-class private high school, they would use humor to create an atmosphere that was comfortable and safe to them. Many of James’ earliest influences in comedy were not comedians but classmates and fellow Boy Scouts. That’s right! He was a Boy Scout. He also skipped second grade and is an avid golfer with a single digit handicap. James is also a gifted artist and… not so gifted (yet avid) freestyle rapper. These are the characteristics that make James Davis who he is on stage as a comedian, on set as an actor or on paper as a writer.
When it comes to James Davis, the sky is the limit. Mr. Davis’ TV credits include BET’s “Hell Date,” Bill Bellamy’s “Who’s Got Jokes” and a handful of MTV shows that he would like to forget. He’s written for the past three BET Awards and the past two BET Hip Hop Awards. James often performs stand-up comedy for troops, colleges and all the major comedy clubs in southern California. He has even hosted shows for Drake and Ryan Leslie. His music spoofs have made it all the way to cable via Comcast On-Demand.
Currently, James can be seen on the Comedy Central show “Russell Simmons Presents Stand-Up at the El Rey Theater” hosted by JB Smoove. God willing, you’ll be hearing about this young man for a long time. This message will self destruct in 20 seconds.
