Jamie Foxx recently announced his return to comedy with his upcoming tour, ‘Kill The Comedian’. The iconic actor, singer/songwriter and producer’s comeback was inspired by time spent in the presence of fellow comedians Eddie Murphy, Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock and Jimmy Kimmel.
Foxx made the announcement during a Grey Goose Vodka ‘Live Vicariously’ event in NYC. After playing ‘Bartender’ (an ode to his hit song, ‘Blame It’), Foxx stated his preparation plans to jump back out on the road for his next comedy tour.
Before taking Hollywood by storm, landing Academy Awards, Golden Globes and BAFTA’s, Foxx’s career launched on a comedy club stage in 1989, where he routinely performed on open mic nights. After landing his first role in 1991 on the cast of ‘In Living Color’, Foxx soon went on to star in his own sitcom, The Jamie Foxx Show (1996-2001). The rest is history..
Now, 30 years later, in synchronistic fashion, the Hollywood Walk Of Fame star, raised on comedy, plans to return to where it all started – exploring if he still has what it takes to ‘standup’ and bring all the laughs.
