|Tommy Davidson is scheduled to appear July 12 through 14 at the Tempe Improv.|
There's a rather presidential-sounding voice that answers Tommy Davidson's cell if the comedian doesn't happen to pick up in time. In fact, it's a dead ringer for the current commander-in-chief: "Hi, I'm Barack Obama and you just called Tommy Davidson's phone." It ain't the actual POTUS on the comic's outgoing voicemail message, but rather his accurate rendition of the prez, one of dozens of impressions in his arsenal.
Besides a mean Fauxbama, he also does a dead-on Sammy Davis Jr., Michael Jackson, and Al Jarreau, among others. Davidson's ample vocal skills and comedic talents -- honed during countless gigs and five seasons on landmark 1990s sketch show In Living Color -- are why he's downright hilarious in films like Juwanna Mann or Woo. Ditto for his latest role as the flamboyant perm-loving pimp Cream Corn in the flick Black Dynamite and the hit Adult Swim cartoon that the blaxploitation spoof inspired.More »
