In Living Color’ is a classic to many and has launched the careers of so many great comedians and entertainers.
The cast of the 1990s sketch comedy show is expected to reunite on stage at this year’s #TribecaFilmFestival in #NewYorkCity for the 25th anniversary of their show’s finale, according to @Huffpost.
This year’s festival, which is happening between April 24 to May 5, will celebrate anniversaries and milestones of iconic television shows as part of its Tribeca TV Program. Not only did “In Living Color” make the cut, but the festival will feature a screening of the pilot episode of the show!
“In Living Color” aired its final episode in 1994. The show’s pilot is slated to screen in a theater on April 27, which is supposed to be followed by a conversation with members of the cast, including the show’s creator Keenen Ivory Wayans.
Other cast members expected to attend include Shawn Wayans, Kim Wayans, Tommy Davidson, David Alan Grier and Rosie Perez.
“Twenty-five years after its finale, the cast and creator of the groundbreaking sketch comedy show ‘In Living Color’ will reunite to reflect on the Emmy Award-winning show that upended the landscape of television comedy and launched the careers of some of the greatest entertainers of our time,” according to a press release.
On Monday, Davidson took to Twitter to tease the news of the reunion with a throwback photo that also featured other cast members, including Jim Carrey, Kim Coles and Kelly Coffield Park.
“Guess who’s getting together 4 @Tribeca FF 2019?” he wrote. “That’s right #InLivingColor gettin’ 2gether 4 reunion”
The series also featured a troupe of dancers called the Fly Girls, which included at times Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Ann Inaba and Deidre Lang.
When asked last year about the possibility of a revival of “In Living Color,” Jim Carrey told Entertainment Tonight, “That show needs to exist. … I’d love to see it reconstitute itself in another form.”
