Over the years, Foxx has become a bona fide movie star, with several awards including an Oscar, Golden Globe, and a Screen Actors Guild Award. Conversely, the 54-year-old entertainer revealed that he’s returning to stand-up comedy soon. “I’m going back out," said Foxx “I never really left doing stand-up. I’m always doing stand-up just not efficiently. But I've been just testing the waters and [doing] impersonations…” Interestingly, Foxx says his top impersonations at the moment are Donald Trump, Chris Rock, Floyd Mayweather and JAY-Z. “I’m going to the [comedy] clubs that I started out at. So it will be up close. Up close I kill em’... I’m going to have some real material. It’s going to be fun.”
Foxx actually began doing stand-up comedy in the third grade. At the time, his teacher and grandmother brokered a deal where he could do stand-up for five minutes on Fridays after school. When it comes to today’s culture, he feels as though comedy and entertainment is the last thing we’ve got and we shouldn't police ourselves.
