The Jamie Foxx Show is a hit American television sketch comedy series. It was created and mostly written by Jamie Foxx and Aaron McGruder, both of whom star in the show and serve as executive producers. It debuted on Fox on September 26, 2004. The show is influential for its unique, absurd, and often controversial style.

Cast

known professionally as Jamie Foxx, is an American actor, comedian, and singer. In 1991 he joined the cast as a featured player in the sketch comedy show In Living Color until the show's end in 1994. Following this success, Foxx was given his own television sitcom The Jamie Foxx Show, in which he starred, co-created and produced, airing for five highly rated seasons from 1996 to 2001 on The WB Television Network. He subsequently became widely known for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the 2004 biographical film Ray, for which he won the Academy Award, BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild Award, Critics' Choice Movie Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, becoming the second actor to win all five major lead actor awards for the same performance. That same year, Foxx was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the crime film Collateral. Since spring 2017, Foxx has served as the host and executive producer of the Fox game show Beat Shazam.

However, the beginning of the fourth season brought about a large retool, with Jamie quitting his job at the hotel to pursue his music career, and getting hired by an ad agency called Jingles 2000. Afterwards, the rest of the cast (save Fancy) were seen less or less often, with Jamie's new co-workers becoming his new best friends. (Source: tvtropes.org)
