Tommy Davidson – ‘Illin in Philly

By: Billy BeerSlugger

I remember seeing this Tommy Davidson standup routine in the early 90’s and laughing my ass off, especially being that it was filmed in Philly. I still can’t figure out why Tommy Davidson never became a huge star after In Living Color. The guy is seriously funny. And the crowd for this performance was amazing.

I also, sort of miss early 90’s fashion in the black community. It celebrated African heritage, was very bright and colorful and looking back on it seems to send a very positive and unified message.

There are 5 videos from the performance, I will post the first two and put links to the remaining 3. It is definitely worth a watch if you haven’t seen it.
