Comedy and jazz have a vibrant history; comedian Richard Pryor would regularly open for Miles Davis or Redd Foxx would perform backed by a big band. The Kennedy Center continues this tradition as comedians David Alan Grier, Marina Franklin, and Faizon Love, join an ensemble led by pianist Jason Moran. Grier, known for his work in the TV variety show In Living Color and most recently in Broadway's Porgy and Bess, is extremely versatile, receiving Tony nominations for both musicals and dramatic work while appearing regularly in television and film productions.
Performance Timing: Approximate - 1-1/2 to 2 hours, without intermission
