In Living Color Cast


Series Description
    


The In Living Color TV show was a 30 minute sketch comedy series on the FOX Network that was created and written by Damon and Keenen Wayans who also starred on the show. It concentrated on humor involving mostly Afro-American subjects, providing a comedy release for audiences that was rare in 1990 and providing a career boost for African-American comedians (and a couple of white guys too).

In Living Color Trivia

Taking a cue from "Saturday Night Live", In Living Color featured live musical performances by top performers and groups including "Arrested Development", "Eazy-E", "En Vogue", "Heavy D", "Jodeci", "Kris Kross", "Leaders of the New School", "Mary J. Blige", "MC Lyte", "Monie Love", "Onyx", "Public Enemy", "Queen Latifah" and "Tupac Shakur".

The title of this series was taken from the well known "Peacock" segment that NBC aired before their new color programming in the 1960s that informed the audience that the show was being broadcast, "In Living Color".

In Living Color did not air live but it was taped live in front of an audience on Stage Seven at the FOX Television Center in Hollywood, California.

You could say that In Living Color was almost a family affair. Besides Keenan and Damon Kim, Marlon and Shawn Wayans were also regular Cast and Dwayne Wayans often appeared as an extra on the set!

The series changed its original opening credits logo shortly after it premiered. The band "Living Colour" filed a lawsuit claiming that the show ripped off their name and logo. It was decided that the name wasn't a ripoff due to the spelling difference and the fact that the name came from the 1960s NBC opening but the logo was pretty similar so it was changed.

During a live Super Bowl halftime special on January 26, 1992 a skit was performed that showed actor Richard Gere and track and field star Carl Lewis as a couple of gay guys. After that FOX began censoring scripts much more aggressively. The Wayans Brothers were not even a little bit happy about the change and Keenen left the show at the end of that season although he did appear in the fourth season opener. He also remained as the Executive producer and left himself in the opening credits until the 13th episode. Marlon left the show with Keenan. At the end of the fourth season Kim and Shawn also left. Damon had also left after the third season in order to pursue a movie career but he also appeared on In Living Color a few times in the fourth season as a guest star.
