Michael Colyar: Living The Dream (Video Interview - Grandstand TV)
Comedian Michael Colyar is a true legend in the world of comedy. Not only has he conquered the world of comedy, but he's also an accomplished actor, entertainer, voiceover artist, and author. Many will remember Colyar winning the Grand Prize Championship on Star Search. Others remember him for his show-stopping performances on Def Comedy Jam. Colyar has done so much over the past 30 years of his career, ranging from small to large productions, and television shows to large-budget films. It was in 1994 that he introduced the world to "Showboat" in House Party 3. He's made many appearances on your favorites sitcoms and television shows, including Martin, The Hughleys, The Parkers, In the House, and The Bernie Mac Show. The world fell in love with him; yet again, as Buford in The Princess & The Frog. These projects are only a small glimpse into the things that he's done throughout his career. Colyar has given us his all throughout the years, and fans love him tremendously for that. That actually brings us to tonight. Colyar is here in Cleveland, performing a string of sets at The Cleveland Improv! Despite the number of things he continues to do in his time, he continues to thrive and flourish in the stand-up world. We had the opportunity to catch up with Mr. Colyar for a quick interview about tonight's performance, and everything he's got going on right now. One of the big things we aim to push here at Urban Grandstand is living your dream. There's nothing like following your heart and passion and doing what you love! We talk to Mr. Colyar about that very thing, as it becomes clear that he is indeed living the dream!
