Homey D. Clown – Damon Wayans plays an ex-con who works as a clown (real name Herman Simpson) for his parole agreement. Homey lashes out at anyone (usually by hitting them on the head with a sock full of pennies) who attempts to make him perform the standard antics of the role – “I don’t think so… Homey don’t play dat!”. His goal in life is to get even with “The Man”, a personification of the white males that are “holding him down”.
Near the end of most sketches, Homey would lead a group of children (played by the cast members) in a call and response sing-along. This would end with him degenerating into a rant, then intimidating the children into repeating after him. Homey was also the first, and only, In Living Color character to get his own video game.
