The average lifespan of a show on Comedy Central is only slightly longer than that of the common housefly. So when channel execs pulled the plug on David Alan Griers Chocolate News just two months after its debut, no one was particularly surprised. Fortunately for Grier (or DAG, as hes known), he didnt put all of his comedic eggs in that particular basket. Sketch comedy isnt his only shtick. A graduate of the Yale School of Drama, DAG is quite the versatile actor, having performed in Broadway musicals (The First, Race), radio dramas (NPRs Star Wars), and on the Dancing With the Stars stage, where every celebrity seems to end up at some point. Of course, hes still mostly known for his various roles on In Living Color, including the very fab Antoine Merriweather. Two snaps up!
