It was a time when Jennifer Lopez was just a fly girl, Jim Carrey and Jamie Foxx were relative unknowns, and Tommy Davidson was just a comedian performing his Sammy Davis Jr. and Sugar Ray Leonard impersonations. Unless you lived in a cave or sketch comedy just wasn’t your thing, then In Living Color is probably what you best remember Davidson doing in the early '90s. Your kid, however, might know him as the voice of Oscar Proud in Disney Channel’s animated show The Proud Family, but that’s just child’s play compared to his most recent accomplishments. Davidson hosted a Showtime special, Chocolate Sundaes, which was a mix of stand-up and sketch comedy, and he is now touring the nation performing his stand-up. He will spend four nights in Arlington at the Improv (309 Curtis Mathes Way) telling sidesplitting jokes and hopefully — fingers crossed — performing his spot-on President Barack Obama impersonation. Shows start at 8 p.m. Thursday with several performances at various times through Sunday. Tickets can be purchased for $20 through the box office, 817-635-5555.
Thu., May 1, 8 p.m.; Fri., May 2, 8 & 10:30 p.m.; Sat., May 3, 7 & 9:30 p.m.; Sun., May 4, 7:30 p.m., 2014
