The legendary comic Tommy Davidson stopped through to the KDAY Morning Show with his peer Eric Blake to discuss life post-pandemic and getting back to normalcy with a new show at the Brea Improv.
The two comics speak with Morning Show hosts Cece and Romeo about the impact the novel coronavirus pandemic had on them as they both admit they learned quite a bit from being around their children so much, as they informed them on different perspectives of social justice issues that focused on racism and LGBTQ+ rights issues.
As comedians have become more under pressure these days for being too offensive, Davidson and Blake believe that social media and the current climate have made the art of comedy more restrictive and censored.
When asked how the classic series “In Living Color” might compare to the new generation’s comedy show Wild N Out, Davidson and Blake both agree that the two shows cant’ compare because they offer different things. The legendary show focused more on the bond the cast had and was about the iconic characters and skits while the MTV show is more of a battlegrounds show.
Both Tommy and Blake go on to reflect on the harsh reality of Davidson’s childhood where he learned to deal with racism he faced, they share who they would battle in a comedic Verzuz battle, give advice to upcoming comics, and much more.
