BTWF: David Alan Grier for Burger King
April 15th, 2021 under Before They Were Famous, David Alan Grier. [ Comments: none ]

Before David Alan Grier was retired in The Cool Kids, he was in the military craving Burger King. He looks the same now as he did when he was 32 in that 1989 commercial.

Before David Alan Grier taught his sons how to be Black on The Carmichael Show, he had to learn to be Black in Beer. How funny was the 28-year-old actor in that 1985 movie?


David Alan Grier plays Jamie Foxx’s dad in Dad Stop Embarrassing Me
March 18th, 2021 under David Alan Grier, Jamie Foxx, Netflix. [ Comments: none ]
Back in 1991, Jamie Foxx and David Alan Grier worked together on In Living Color. Now 30 years later, they are reuniting on Netflix’s Dad Stop Embarrassing Me.

Instead of playing equals as they did on the sketch show, this time around, Grier is playing Foxx’s dad on the sitcom. I would love to know how that phone call went. Did Foxx call him and say, “Dude, I have the perfect role for you on my new show.” Then he told him what it was. Grier was like, that won’t be believable, so Foxx told him to grow a big bushy grey beard. Do you think it worked?

The sitcom is not just about them. Foxx plays a successful businessman and bachelor who suddenly becomes a full-time dad to his daughter Sasha (Kyla-Drew). He is going to need all the help he can get, and he will get that from his dad and sister (Porscha Coleman). But who is going to help Sasha adjust to all of them?

We will just have to tune into Netflix on April 14th to find out. I don’t know about you, but I will be watching because that trailer had me laughing out loud.


The Cool Kids ends its run with its funniest episode
May 10th, 2019 under David Alan Grier, Fox, Leslie Jordan, Vicki Lawrence. [ Comments: none ]

Vicki Lawrence announced today that Fox cancelled her highlarious show The Cool Kids. She wrote, “One last new episode of Cool Kids tonight. End of season 1, end of @thecoolkidsfox 😟 We have been cancelled. I’ve had a good #cry I’ll probably have another. I will miss #myboys” I will miss the four of them too. Even though, they had a crappy pilot, every episode after that got better and better.

Case in point, on tonight’s series finale at 8:30p. Hank (David Alan Grier), Charlie (Martin Mull) and Sid (Leslie Jordan) are going to celebrate their friendiversary and decide not to include Margaret (Lawrence). When she finds out that Sid was not their first choice, she decides to tell him. He gets all catty with his BFFs and joins the cat lady group with Margaret. She realizes he is better with their old friends and comes up with a plan to reunite them all. That is when it gets really funny. So funny, I scared my cat when I laughed out loud. And she did not even mind all the cats they had on the show. Oh and I don’t want to spoil anything but Jamie Farr has the most outrageously hysterical moment of the night.

I am sad this show is ending because it really made me happy every week. Unlike Last Man Standing which has not been as good on Fox. Could be because I hate the new Mandy, She is not as endearing as the original one. Like tonight’s episode, she is not ready to move out and her parents are doing everything in their power to get her to move. It is not like she is moving that far away. She can visit all the time.

The Cool Kids was not the only show to get the dreaded axe on Fox. They also pulled the plug on The Passage. I had to look up what show that was because I could not remember what it was. Do you?


Last Man Standing turns 150, The Cool Kids causes more mayhem
April 19th, 2019 under David Alan Grier, Leslie Jordan, Tim Allen, Vicki Lawrence. [ Comments: none ]

There was a time that it looked like Last Man Standing was not going to have a 150th episode because ABC cancelled it after 130 episodes. Then, a year later, Fox resurrected the comedy and tonight at 8p, it will celebrate its 150th episode!

Mandy (Molly McCock) is looking for an easy way to get her fashion career started, but her dad (Tim Allen) doesn’t think she knows what she is doing. Therefore, he takes her to his job at the Outdoor Man to meet a businesswoman (Melissa Peterman). He thinks she will shun his daughter, but the opposite happens. What is Mike going to do sabotage his daughter’s career?

Then at 8:30p, it is time for The Cool Kids to celebrate its 20th episode. Sid (Leslie Jordan) is avoiding his boyfriend (Jere Burns) because he thinks he is going to propose to him.

Margaret (Vicki Lawrence) on the other hand is going out with a Harvard man (Robert Pine) because she told him she went to Yale. Will he find out her secret?

Finally, Hank (David Alan Grier) is waiting for the results of his mole removal. Since the doctor did not call him back before 5p on Friday, he is convinced that he is dying. Charlie (Martin Mull) convinces him to break into their doctor’s office to get the results. What could go wrong besides everything?

All of this leads to a hilarious final moment that ties it all together. While The Cool Kids started off kind of slow, the show has really found its groove to be on the funniest on TV this season.
