Published on April 6, 2021

DAG talks about his quarantine outfit, staying home, being in a bubble with his family, losing weight on the Jenny Craig diet, cast-members on “In Living Color” playing pranks on him, playing Jamie Foxx’s father on their new Netflix show “Dad Stop Embarrassing Me,” meeting Jamie for the first time, and Jimmy’s parents coming to his shows and feeding him leftovers.

    Jamie Fox looks older than David. He’s literally only 10-11 years older, lol

    I appreciate DAG so much more as an adult than I did when I was kid! Non-stop laughter at him on Martin! I love the episode at his church when he was marching down the aisle and singing “I’ve Got a Feeling”! I love when he cracks during that scene! It’s pure gold!

    Still the funniest man around. The DAG is grossly underappreciated. You never know what’s real sometimes.

    David’s done the road longer than 25 years. I saw him in the early 1990’s at UT Arlington. One of the funniest comedy shows ever.

    Been a fan for 25 years and I’m only 36 lol. In living color was the best and I’m glad he and Jamie reconnected. Also I almost spit out my water when he said he wanted to get back to his birth weight 🤣🤣

    Some people don’t need someone like Jenny Craig. I decided one day I needed to diet. I lost 30 lbs in 3 months. I now eat what I want but eat in moderation. Occasionally I do all you can eat. A little overboard, but not extreme. A few days later, I’m back to normal. Weight varies +/- 2 pounds but that is normal. Could lose another 10 pounds to be ideal weight but I’ll wait a bit.
