This past Sunday Jamie Foxx was at the The Borgata Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ, a scheduled stop on his US music and comedy tour. Fantasia is the opening act for a number of the dates. With a ticket price of $225, $195, and $175, there had better be something more than Jamie and Fantasia recreating BET Award show tongue play.
No word if Jamie sang any of his songs, but he did reach back to his roots with plenty of jokes. With all the acting and videos you almost forget that’s where he started.. like even before Living Color, Eric was hitting the comedy circuit.
He used Sunday’s stop to tackle the Michael Richards nigga rant..
“I’m an Oscar winner, but I’m a nigga, too.”
“He was just calling us nigga like it was the ‘50s!”
“Nigger, nigger, with a ‘e-r.’ “
“Then they said we can’t use the word nigga anymore. That’s my shit. I need it. I need the word to describe certain things, because at a certain level of excitement, I need to tell you how the shit was, and there ain’t no other word that helps me say that better than that word.”
“White people, you can’t use it…”
That is the rule.
OJ got a little too..
“I threw a party in Miami, and he showed up at the party. He shook my hand hard as hell. He did it!”
“O.J. be everywhere, like he still in style, like he got a hot record album. He has no remorse and he crazy. He arrogant. What is he doing? Every black person is saying, ‘You already got away; don’t dance in the end zone!’ “
Saw Paris Hilton at a party..
“She was just falling down all over the place. And no NFL tackle around, just doing it on her own.”
“She whispered her entire album. I said, ‘What’s wrong with my speakers?’ “
“They say I sleep with everybody. So, I’m layin’ in bed with Oprah. I lean over to Gayle and say, ‘Don’t believe this shit. It’s just between us three!’ “
“You famous when you can just go over to another country and pick up some kids like you’re shopping for vegetables. I wish she was adopting when I was coming up. I would have breast-fed till I was 37.”
Jamie still got jokes. Here’s the remaining tour schedule in case you want to part ways with a buck - buck fifty.
