Tommy Davidson

Tommy Davidson might have to be cajoled a bit in order to do his impression of the late Sammy Davis Jr. The famously honed impression became a staple on In Living Color, FOX's answer to Saturday Night Live, but it's not standard in Davidson stand-up routines. ''I used to do Sammy, but I'm afraid I’m going to get haunted, man,'' Davidson homages, twisting his lip to one side of his face threateningly while popping one eye in a scary, glassy tribute. ''I'll wake up in the middle of the night and Sammy will be standing at the end of my bed. 'Can I talk to your ass for a minute?''' A five-time Image Awards nominee for his work in Disney's The Proud Family (think a cartoon The Cosby Show), more recently Davidson parlayed his blacksploitation satire Black Dynamite into a new animated project on the considerably edgier Adult Swim network.
