The Jamie Foxx Show

Show Summary

Texas native Jamie King (Jamie Foxx, "In Living Color") is an aspiring actor who heads to Hollywood in hopes to find fame and fortune in the entertainment industry. To support himself, he works at his Aunt Helen (Ellia English) and Uncle Junior's (Garrett Morris, "Martin") Los Angeles hotel, the King's Towers. On the job, he annoys co-worker Braxton P. Hartnabrig (Christopher B. Duncan), the up-tight accountant, and tries to win the attention of gorgeous desk clerk, Francesca "Fancy" Monroe (Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon, "NYPD Blue", "Opposite Sex"), who has made it clear that she is not interested in an office romance. Nevertheless, Jamie is determined to maintain his skills as an entertainer and move into the limelight.

      There's nothing much else on. I do wished it was better.

    • Witty Love and Adventures!

      Jamie was always chasing Fransesca. He always tried to woo her by singing. He eventually wins her over. But he was very very comedic. Great for comedy!
    • A stereotypical and demeaning example of Black comedy. A modern example of unabashed blaxploitation.

      There's really not much one can say about this show, because honestly there isn't that much substance to it. The producers just seem to be content with throwing out Black sitcom stereotypes, make all the Black characters embody highly stereotypical mannerisms, and in doing so will hopefully garner a brain-dead Black audience. The show's recent pick-up by BET signifies that apparently these lowly tactics have proven to be successful, cuz if you're looking for a brain-dead Black audience, BET is the definate hotspot. Personally I find this show completely offensive to my intelligence and utterly unwatchable. Just don't get me started on the Wayan Bros.moreless
    • What a con!

      10
      After having a guest leave and has her credit card maxed-out, she thought it would be a great idea to wet the floor so that she can get a room for free. Well, the guest sues Jamie and the workers at the hotel (with Ruth Buzzi as the Judge). The Guest makes herself even worse than she was before, but when they ask her to dance, she has egg on her face and when she actually does fall, Jamie and his staff won't help. It seems that Ms. Richburg cried wolf one too many times and now she is paying for it!moreless
