Default In Living Color comes on like 5ive channels now.

Bout time they pay respect to one of the greatest sketch comedy shows to ever grace prime time television. With so many names starting their careers from this show, it should never go off the air again.

No other sketch comedy show has come close since. Yes, I think it was even funnier than the Chapelle show( although I like the Chapelle show). Even still, the amount of talent this show was crazy......

this show kinda sucks to be honest. even "James Carrey" isn't that funny in it. It is nowhere near as funny as Chappelle get real. Kids in the Hall was a way better show that should be aired instead.

Mr. Show >> Kids in the Hall.

Chappelle Show is In Living Color 10 years later on a cable network.

it was OK, kind of like a MadTV, not on the level of Chapelle, SNL or KitH (though they did have their fair share of duds). it was hot when it came out though because it was a different take.

This was not "kind of" like MadTV. No one from Mad TV has went on to success afterwards.

And I shouldn't have commented on Kids cause I have never seen it in syndication.

There is a reason why damn near every cast member from ILC is still somewhat relevant.

Oh, black people. You create a sketch comedy show to feature black comedians, black talents, black sense of humor, giving blacks opportunities to succeed........


And the most successful star to come out of the show is the white guy.




White people win again.......

sadly dude, Bagel Red above is right. The Wayans basically just spent a decade shitting out endless piles of turds and passing them off as movies to their loyal fans (not unlike Tyler Perry).

there are a ton of talented black people in comedy and the opportunities were few (with Tim Meadows and Chris Rock filling up SNL's quota) so this outlet was bound to spin off some successful careers. Think of it as a Second City or Groundlings for black talent.

Sadly though after Jim Carrey and Jamie Foxx who ya got? number three is David Alan Grier, I like him but he is hardly a superstar...the talent on this show was grossly over-exaggerated, but I guess you could say Jennifer Lopez counts because she was a dancer, but that is kind of like putting Paula Abdul on the Lakers...doesn't count.

I agree that Mr.Show>Kids in the Hall. i just mentioned KiTH cuz it was around the same time as In Living Color. Mr. Show was a little later.

Chappelle, Charlie Murphy, Rick James and Paul Mooney were way funnier than anything on In Living Color

Considering that Mooney wrote for both series and Tyrone Biggums is a knock off Anton Jackson, that is false. Also, does Kids in the Hall come on any station? I've never seen it anywhere before?
