Redd Foxx was a trailblazing comedian whose irreverent humor and sharp wit entertained audiences for decades. Born John Elroy Sanford in 1922, Foxx grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and began his career in comedy in the 1940s.
Foxx honed his craft on the Chittlin’ Circuit, a network of African-American vaudeville theaters that crisscrossed the country. He quickly gained a reputation for his raunchy, unapologetic humor, which often tackled taboo subjects such as sex and race relations.
In the 1950s and 60s, Foxx recorded several successful comedy albums, including “Laff of the Party” and “The Best of Redd Foxx.” These albums cemented his status as one of the most popular comedians of his time.
In 1972, Foxx landed the role of Fred Sanford in the hit TV series “Sanford and Son.” The show, which followed the antics of a junk dealer and his son, was a huge success and ran for six seasons. Foxx’s portrayal of Sanford earned him a Golden Globe award and made him a household name.
Despite his success on TV, Foxx never lost his love for stand-up comedy. He continued to perform live shows throughout his career, earning a reputation as a master of the craft.
Sadly, Foxx passed away in 1991 at the age of 68. However, his legacy lives on as a pioneering figure in the world of comedy. His irreverent humor and groundbreaking approach to taboo subjects paved the way for countless comedians who followed in his footsteps.
