Davidson started his career as a standup comedian in Washington DC, earning an ardent following with sheer hard work in various comedy clubs. As one of the cutting-edge, young stand-ups, he was spotted by major concert promoters who booked him as the opening act for A-list touring acts including Patti LaBelle, Kenny G & Luther Vandross. It wasn’t long before he came to Hollywood & was performing stand-up at a number of clubs, including the Comedy Act Theatre, where he met Robert Townsend.
