REDD FOXX, the late and great comedian and I laughed a few times over the years. I was a young kid in Flint, Michigan when he got out a car in front of a club on Saginaw Street, the main drag in our city. I recognized the Mr. Foxx from his many albums that were over a relatives house, (I got caught looking at them and was yelled at in the 3rd degree).

So I said hello and he smiled, shook my hand and went into the place of ill repute. When I came to Hollywood, I ran into him and low and behold, he recalled the time we met. Comedians must have a good memory to recall all those jokes !!

Redd Foxx will be recognized in my upcoming inter-active book and film documentary Black Film Tracks. Enjoy this holiday and we shall see you soon !!

Wow! Della Reese Says Redd Foxx Did WHAT For Her When She Was Broke?!!

Della Resse and Redd Foxx

Iconic Comedian REDD FOXX, has been away from us for 23 years. Doesn’t seem like it was that long ago, does it? He’s still seen as one of the ‘greatest’ by many of today’s hottest comedians.  Let Foxx’s closest friends tell it, there was also an even better side to him that many never knew. One of those close friends, Della Reese – a legendary actress, singer, dancer, singer, and more in her own right; was friends with Foxx for 40 years and in the video below, she tells a great story about when Foxx was working at a club in Pennsylvania. She met with him backstage and confided that she didn’t have a job and needed some money. Wait ’til you see what Della said Foxx did on that night to help her get back on her feet.

“We were hungry together. We were out of work together,” Reese laughs loudly. “We shared sandwiches together. He (Foxx) loved helping others. The public makes him out to be a nasty mouth, mean person. He was the total opposite – a gentle loving person. If you needed something, he would go into his pocket and give it to you.”

According to Reese, the reason Redd was broke at the end was due to his extraordinary generosity and in a 1983 interview with Tom Joyner, Foxx basically confirmed that claim, stating that he was a “provider” by nature.

Redd Foxx gained notoriety with his raunchy nightclub acts during the 1950s and 1960s. Known as the “King of the Party Records”, he performed on more than 50 records in his lifetime. While working together as television co-stars of the Eddie Murphy penned “Royal Family”, the man known for a few false alarm heart attacks, succumbed right there on the set during rehearsals. Della was the first to find him and immediately thought it was another one of his gags, but sadly it was the “big one” that time…it was also the day we lost one of the best comedians to have EVER done it.

Foxx’s character as a man, as a person, is something that could change the lives and the character of the people who’s lives he personally touched. Redd was a great example that reminds us that when we have, we should reach back and give; and when we do that, then our journey on this earth will become a greater movement that’ll affect others long after we’ve closed our eyes.

Redd Foxx clearly lived up to his description of being a “provider by nature” and we thank him for all of the years of gracing us with those jokes that produced those hardcore belly-aching, tear dropping, make-you-wanna-slap-somebody laughs! Mr. Foxx, we salute you sir…rest well.

There are several other comedians who have extended that type of generosity to other comedians that they admire throughout the years. Flip the page to see what some of them have done for other comics in the game, like Richard Pryor, and more.

Redd Foxx, Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor on the set of Harlem Nights

Eddie Murphy directed and wrote the script for Harlem Knights, an old school ’89 cult classic, with his dream cast in mind- Redd Foxx, Della Reese, Robin Harris, and the man whom he credited for his sole reason for becoming a comedian, his idol, Richard Pryor. At the time, Eddie Murphy was seen by Hollywood as the “It” guy because he was killin’ it on every film he touched back then. So he used his star power to give back to the comedians who came before him. A lot of us liked this movie because it had 3 generations of classic comics in it- Foxx, 67, Pryor, 49, and Murphy, 28 and in the Jan. 1990 issue ofEbony magazine, Eddie talked about what this opportunity meant to him:

“This whole thing didn’t happen until we all got together and cooked this up,” Murphy says. “Hollywood wasn’t trying to hook us up. But I think it’s just historic that I get to work with these brothers. The privilege of working with Richard and Redd has been the greatest reward of my career.”

Here’s an Old School fun fact about Harlem Knights:

Eddie Murpy’s uncle, Sugar Ray

The movie was actually patterned after Eddie’s uncle, Sugar Ray (played by Pryor), who in fact, owned a bar in Brooklyn. Here’s what Eddie’s uncle, Sugar Ray, said about the movie:

“I owned a bar in Brooklyn called Sugar Ray’s and I used to tell Eddie the stories about when I ran with the mafia that Donnie Brascoe and all of that. In three weeks, Eddie wrote that movie Harlem Nights. That movie was like real, what really happened back in those days. I’m proud to say that my nephew has immortalized me between the movies and all the people I’ve met in Hollywood. I think it’s the most wonderful thing that could ever happen to somebody who comes from the projects.”

Martin Lawrence

After reaching the pinnacle of his career, our man Martin Lawrence felt the need to reach back and give current and up and coming comedians a mainstream platform to help them be seen by the masses. He created a stand up comedy cable show, titled Martin Lawrence Presents: 1st Amendment Stand-Up, which was a series that aired on the Starz network.

Spike Lee

Okay so Spike Lee isn’t a comedian, but he did make it a point to put a fairly new comedian on the map back in the day, when he chose Robin Harris for several roles in Do the Right Thing, House Party and Mo Betta Blues.

Keenan Ivory Wayans gave Robin Harris a shot also by casting him in I’m Gonna Git’ You Sucka and the late Robin Harris definitely held his own in all or these roles.

Redd Foxx Interview with Bill Boggs


LaWanda Page (1920 – 2002), who was born on October 19th. She is best known for her role as Aunt Esther in the 1970s TV sitcom Sanford and Son. She later reprised the role in Sanford Arms and Sanford. Among her movie credits are an appearance in the Steve Martin film My Blue Heaven; as an extremely foul-mouthed clown in Bobcat Goldthwait's 1991 comedy Shakes the Clown; a cameo appearance in the hit movie Friday, stealing the opening scene with a salty one-liner; and a role in the 'hood parody film Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood as the overbearing mother of aging gangsta "Old School."

#16 – Redd Foxx (The Royal Family)

Born as Jon Elroy Stanford, Redd Foxx launched his career in the 1950s as a standup comedian known for his raunchy nightclub acts. Earning his place in the spotlight, Foxx was dubbed as the “King of Party Records” and was named by Comedy Central as one of the 25 greatest standup comedians of all time. Perhaps more notable than his explicit comedy, Foxx will forever be remembered as Fred Sanford on the hit sitcom Sanford and Son, which ran from 1972 to 1977.

Long after production wrapped for Sanford and Son, Foxx stayed active in television and comedy, later appearing on the 1991 series produced by Eddie Murphy, The Royal Family. Cast opposite of Della Reese, Foxx was taking a break on set when he had a heart attack and fell to the floor. Ironically, he kept saying “Get my wife”, a phrase from his early days on Sanford that made the crew think he was doing a throwback to his former character. Unfortunately, Foxx wasn’t kidding and was rushed to the hospital where he died that evening at the age of 68.
