Homey D. ClownHomey the Clown - A frustrated, ex-convict who performed on the streets to make money as seen on the irreverent comedy program IN LIVING COLOR/FOX/1990-94.

Homey D. Clown (real name: Herman Simpson) sported a painted face, red hair, balding head, and a baggy yellow and orange clown suit with large pompom buttons and oversized shoes.

Working the streets and occasional party, he would asked people if they wanted to see a trick and then say, "Give me a dollar."

This "establishment" hating individual had a short temper and hit people over the head with a stuffed sock. He accompanied his head bashing with the catchphrase "Homey don't play that!"

Once, while visiting his parole officer, Homey claimed that his file was just a "long list of lies perpetrated by the "Man" to keep a brother down."

During a children's party a child asked, "Why did you become a clown?" Homey responded, "I guess its because I got so much love to give...and its part of my prison work release program. I got about five more years of this clown crap."

Homey ended the party by singing the Homey the Clown song...

Homey the clown, Don't mess around,
Even though the Man, Try to keep him down,
One day Homey will, Break all the chains,
Then he'll fly away, But until that day,
Homey don't play.

Damon Wayans, who starred as Homey the Clown, also appeared as Blaine, a homosexual critic; Whiz, the cohost of the Homeboy Shopping Network; Anton, the Homeless Man; and Handi-man, a physically challenged superhero.
