As I watch it now on Aspire, I still love "In Living Color"

WAY ahead of its time, and unlike many shows from 30 years ago, it's still funny as hell.

2. Jim Carrey was blowing everyone away back then ...

Kinda like Eddie did on SNL a few years earlier.

Not that there weren't other great actors on the show, but Carrey really captured the public's imagination as the saying goes.

8. I miss a lot of early SNL references I think beause this was on opposite that show on saturdays

On Chicago Fox? Plus then I started working and I had to work on Saturdays ..
anyway I’m glad this was on instead because it was hilarious
and it’s generational now because White Chicks is a cult classic movie to my kids (I never even showed it to them ! ) You have to love the talented Wayans family and what a ride thatvshow was

10. Yes the entire Wayans family were all so funny and talented

Jim Carrey was not intimidated - he held his own and he made the show even better.
I remember In Living Color being on Sunday nights, but maybe that was just in Pittsburgh. (?)

12. Yes I heard Wayans saying he would have a small part and steal the whole scene he was so funny

All of them it was to get the most laughs in a not mean, but comedic competitive way, and Carrey really would push the challenge which Wayans said was good for the whole cast
Plus Carrey’s own characters were some of the real crazy fun on the show.

11. One of my favorite TV shows of all time!

Does anyone remember the sketch where Jim Carey played a TV news reporter, with camera, who drove out to the location of an "Elvis sighting"?

(I loved watching The Fly Girls dance)
