HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO REDD FOXX

December 9, 2015

Today we remember the original "Def Jam Comedian", Redd Foxx. He was born on this date in 1922.

He's best known for his hit TV show, "Sanford and Son", but Foxx was a popular comic on "the Chitlin' Circuit" in the late 40's and 50's. Back in the day his "Blue Humor" was considered too racy for white audiences, but after his TV success he was a headliner at nightclubs in Las Vegas.

 

So happy birthday today to Jon Elroy Sanford aka Redd Foxx!
