One on One with David Alan Grier

Funnyman David Alan Grier is an accomplished stand up comic, actor and Tony nominee, but now he can add Game Show Host to his impressive list of accomplishments. 

Known for his role as The Cowardly Lion in the acclaimed TV movie, The Wiz Live! and as a member of the groundbreaking hit variety show, In Living Color, Grier is currently starring in The Carmichael Show.
He is now gearing up to host a brand new game show on GSN called, SNAP DECISION

What can you tell about a person just by looking at them? SNAP DECISION tests your theories about what you THINK you know! 

The new comedy game show puts preconceptions, first impressions, and gut instinct to the ultimate test. Studio contestants go head-to-head for a $10,000 grand prize as they are asked to make snap judgments about three strangers, recently interviewed on the street. However, looks can be deceiving, as people are often not who they may seem, leading to unexpected twists, turns, and outrageous and hilarious results.

David Alan Grier is a three-time Tony® and Grammy® Award nominee. Although Grier’s acting career is rooted in live theater, he has since also made a name for himself in the world of television. He is currently starring in his third season of NBC’s The Carmichael Show, and is also known to TV viewers for his recent role as the Cowardly Lion in the critically acclaimed TV movie The Wiz Live! for which he earned two Image Awards and two Critics’ Choice Awards nominations. Most notably, he was an integral cast member of the classic and groundbreaking hit variety television show In Living Color, and was named among Comedy Central’s list of the “Top 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time.”

I had the opportunity to speak with David via satellite from Los Angeles about his new role, whether or not he makes "snap decisions" and if just maybe one of his iconic characters from In Living Color might be making a comeback!
