His ability to excel in all mediums is a testament to the man's inherent sense of comedic timing. Trained in Shakespeare at Yale where he received an MFA from the Yale School of Drama, Grier was subsequently named one of Comedy Central's "100 Greatest Stand-ups of All Time."
Grier has gained recognition for his numerous feature film roles including Baadasssss!, The Woodsman, 15 Minutes, Boomerang, Bewitched, Jumanji and Streamers, for which he won a Golden Lion Award for Best Actor at the Venice Film Festival. He is well known as being a principle cast member of the acclaimed television series In Living Color, and also as a co-star on Bonnie Hunt's hit ABC comedy Life with Bonnie. Not to mention he starred on the hit NBC show DAG and won America's votes on ABC's smash hit Dancing with the Stars.
