David Alan Grier Looks Back On 'In Living Color' And Its Gay 'Men On...' Sketches

Posted: Updated:

"In Living Color" veteran David Alan Grier joined HuffPost Live this week for an exclusive interview.

During the chat, the comedian looked back on "Men On...," in which he and Damon Wayans played two gay cultural critics.

As to how that brand of comedy would fare today, Grier noted, "The politics and the social awareness of today [are] different. It would have to be totally re-thought ... [but] it was in no way ridiculing [the gay community]."

He went on to suggest how the sketch series, which he described as being "of the time," could be adapted for modern audiences: "They would be so straight-looking that no one would know their sexuality."
