Affion Crockett is an American actor, writer, dancer, rapper, comedian, music producer, and maker of YouTube videos. Crockett began his career as a dancer at age 10, winning breaking and popping contests with his older brother.[citation needed] Later on, he honed his impression skills by imitating anyone from his mother's West Indian dialect or his schoolteacher's southern drawl to the Scarface's choppy Cuban accent.

Life and career[edit]

Crockett was raised an army brat, spending time in Germany and Fayetteville, North Carolina.[1] After graduating from Fayetteville State University, with a bachelor's degree in business, Affion set his sights on the entertainment industry.

Crockett appeared in HBO's Def Comedy Jam in 1996, demonstrating his impressions and physical comedy.[2] He has also been on CSI: NY, NYPD Blue and The District.[2] He appeared on MTV's Short Circuitz with Nick Cannon.[3] He was a cast member of the game show Wild 'n Out, which also starred Nick Cannon.[3] He has appeared on Curb Your Enthusiasm as "Car Customer #2" and Cedric The Entertainer's Show.[4] Crockett also co-starred in the films, Dance Flick with the Wayans Brothers, Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins with Martin Lawrence, and Soul Men with Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac.[4]

Crockett starred in and produced his own sketch comedy show for Fox called "In the Flow with Affion Crockett" which was also executive produced by Jamie Foxx.[5][5] The show was cancelled due to low ratings.[5] On November 6, 2012, he released his debut comedy album called "Watch the Clone" which was available on iTunes.[6]
