Without question one of the best sketch comedy shows of all time will reunite after 25 years. The hit show In Loving Color was the brainchild of Keenen Ivory Wayans.  The show sparked the careers of legendary comedians including Jamie Foxx, Tommy Davidson the Wayans family and of course Jim Carrey.  Now fans will get to seem them together one more time at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival

This year will mark the 18th Annual Tribeca Film Festival, which is considered the the marquee film festival in the U.S.  Organizers plan on screening the original pilot of In Living Color.  The festival will take place April 24th to 5th and will also recognize the legendary cartoon series The Simpson, which will celebrate its 30th anniversary in December.

The In Living Color pilot episode is scheduled to be screened April 27th.  After the screening, attendees will be treated to a conversation with Keenen Ivory Wayans along with co-stars Shawn Wayans, Kim Wayans, Tommy Davidson, David Alan Grier and Rosie Perez.

A press release regarding this special event went on to state, “Twenty-five years after its finale, the cast and creator of the groundbreaking sketch comedy show ‘In Living Color’ will reunite to reflect on the Emmy Award-winning show that upended the landscape of television comedy and launched the careers of some of the greatest entertainers of our time.”
Although there has no official word of her attending, Jennifer Lopez credits her career spark to In Living Color as one of the show’s Fly Girls dancers along with Carrie Ann Inaba and Deidre Lang.
