Wayans' World: Marlon Wayans Is Set to Take on the World With His Newfound Passion: Standup Comedy
He may not be as big a star as his former In Living Color castmates Jamie Foxx and Jim Carey, but Detroit native David Alan Grier is one of the most indefatigable funnymen on the scene, a comic cut-up who seems to be in a movie, TV show, or on stage every time theres a punch line to be delivered. For a guy who may be best remembered as a flamboyant movie critic on a sketch comedy show, Grier has a surprising resume. Hes a graduate of the Yale School of Drama and has worked on both Tony and Oscar-nominated projects. Griers come a long way from Funky Finger Productions. Grier performs Friday through Sunday at the Improv Paradise Live (5700 Seminole Way, Hollywood). Tickets cost $23.32 to $26.50. Call 954-981-5653, or visit www.improvftl.com.
