| it's one of those days when you kick back, eat some tacos & watch classic episodes of #inlivingcolor, the sketch comedy television series that originally ran on fox from apr 15, 199o to may 19, 1994. it was created by the comedic g'hauwds #keenenivorywayans (@keenenivorywayans) & #damonwayans (@damonkwayans). the show was produced by #ivory & taped at stage 7 at the fox on #sunsetboulevard in hollywood. the title of the series was inspired by the 'in living color' if the 195o's & 196o's, prior to the introduction of mainstream television in color. it also refers to the fact that most of the show's cast were black, unlike other sketch comedy shows such as #saturdaynightlive (#snl) whose casts were mostly caucasian. it was controversial due to the wayans' decision to portray black humor from the ghetto in a time when mainstream #american tastes regarding black comedy had been set by more upscale shows such as #thecosbyshow, causing an eventual feud for control between the fox executives & the wayans. other members of the wayans family #kimwayans, #shawnwayans & #marlonwayans (@marlonwayans) had regular roles, while brother #dwaynewayans frequently appeared as an extra. the show also starred the previously unknown actor/comedians #jimcarrey, #jamiefoxx, #tommydavidson, #davidalangrier & #tkeyahcrystalkeymáh. additionally, #dancingwiththestars (#dwts) judge & choreographer #carrieanninaba as well as actress & pop music star #jenniferlopez (@jlo) were members of the show's dance troupe #theflygirls w/ actress #rosieperez who also served as the shows choreographer. the show launched the careers of carrey, foxx, davidson, grier, keymáh, inaba in additon to lopez & is credited with bringing the wayans family to a higher level of fame as well. the series gained international prominence for its bold move and its all-time high ratings gained by airing a live, special episode as a counterprogram for the halftime show of the live telecast of #superbowl XXVI. i've always felt this intro performed by the rap g'hauwd #heavyd. now playing : 'cause that's the way you livin' when you're in living color' (#pressplay + tapforsound).
