WHO IS HE: Jamie Foxx is an actor, comedian and musician who has had a diverse and very successful career since first making a name for himself in the sketch comedy television show “In Living Color.” He’s starred in films such as “Toys,” “Any Given Sunday” “Ali” and “Collateral,” and won an Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the 2004 film “Ray.” His performance in the film helped expose his abilities as a singer and in 2005, Foxx’s album “Unpredictable” reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The title track from the album made it to No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2008 Foxx followed up with “Intuition,” which was another hit album, reaching No. 3 on the charts. It contained the singles “Just Like Me,” “She Got Her Own” and “Blame It.” The album “Best Night of My Life” was released in 2010, debuting at No. 6 on the Billboard 200.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Jamie Foxx is a rare talent who has managed to achieve major success in comedy, acting and as a recording artist. On Friday night at Revel Casino-Hotel, Foxx will not only entertain the crowd by performing his hit songs, he’ll also be peppering the show with his unique brand of comedy.
