Check Out This Hilarious Teaser For “White Famous” Starring Jay Pharoah (Trailer)

It’s a fair question, and an old question: Why do WE have to ‘cross over’ to White audiences to be successful? I know it’s been the question asked of entertainers since “The Five Heartbeats” movie. And I am willing to bet a fair amount that Jay Pharoah sneaks in an imitation of Chris Rock in this debut season of his new Showtime series… Rock had me cracking the f*** up when he told Kevin Hart he was just ‘Black Famous’ on “Real House Husbands Of Hollywood” (you can’t CLOSE, Kevin, hahaaa)!

SHOWTIME® presents WHITE FAMOUS, the outrageous new Original Comedy Series starring Jay Pharoah. Comedian Floyd Mooney’s career is about to blow up, but he’s not so sure he’s ready for all that. He doesn’t have time for big egos, crazy studio execs and the wild side of fame. Hollywood is full of phonies but Floyd wants to stay true to himself. Can he make it without losing his soul? Don’t miss WHITE FAMOUS, the insanely funny new comedy from Tom Kapinos, executive producer of Californication, and Academy Award® winner Jamie Foxx, airing Sunday, October 15th 10PM ET/PT only on SHOWTIME®.

tez-showtime-1My homie Tez McClain gave me the honor to debut this collaboration with Scarface called “Showtime” a number of months ago on The Beatz & Lyrics Show with Jayforce.
