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. After starting out as a member of the "In Living Color" troupe, Foxx stars in his own show that was the WB's highest-rated series for the 1996-1997 season.

  • Witty Love and Adventures!

    8.5
    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!

    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

  • Cool!

    6.6
    I would say the t.v. show is a classic. Because Jamie Foxx is the main character of the show and really do love him. I would say my favorite episode is when Jamie and Fancy got married. I would say this is the best show ever. It's funny as it relates to some people out here in the world. This show isn't just funny, but it shows a lot of talent which Jamie can sing and also it shows that he caring and he is there when you need a friend. I'll never forget that one episode when he thought Silace was cheating on Fancy. Jamie and Fancy went salsa dancing and Silace appeared with this beautiful lady which was his dance instructor. But Jamie and Fancy thought other wise. But in the end Silace and Fancy got. The Jamie Foxx Show is a classical comedy. There is never a dull moment throughout the entire 5 seasons. Jamie Foxx delivers a brilliant, hilarious, and an unforgettable performance. Garrett Moris adds his own flavor of comedy and is a great addition to the show. Garcelle Beauvais, Ella English, and Christopher Duncan also give the show that certain spice that pushes it over the top for an excellent show. Great jokes, hilarious faces, and funny body postures are the ingredients that help this show set the standard for sitcoms following it. Jamie Foxx and his extreme sense of humor made The Jamie Foxx Show ahead of its time and a classic sitcom! Jamie Foxx had a really great show. I'm glad the show finished and didn't get canceled. It was really funny. I like when Jaime Foxx sing on there. I love his voice. Overall, each character helped make the show to a very successful one. Those little add in jokes he says are hilarious.moreless
