If you can recall, last August actor/comedian Jay Pharoah along with six-season costar Taran Killam were let go by NBC to be in pursuit of "other opportunities". Jay Pharoah explained the real reasons why when speaking to Hot 97's "Erbo In The Morning", he said:
“If you have multiple people on the cast saying things like ‘You’re so talented, you’re so able, they don’t use you and it’s unfair and it’s making us feel bad. They put people into boxes. Whatever they want you to do, they expect you to do,” he added. “I’m a little fiery too… I’m not a yes n*****.”
Jay Pharoah was famous for his imitations of Barack Obama, Jay-Z, Will Smith, Dr. Ben Carson and etc. It didn't take long though for Pharoah to receive the perfect opportunity. He will be starring in his very own comedy series, 'White Famous', which will depict Jamie Foxx's come up in the business. PERFECT! The show will air on Showtime and I will be watching, I am proud that he has found somewhere that his skills can be honored and appreciated!
