AFFION CROCKETT is one of the most versatile entertainers around, as an accomplished actor,
writer, dancer, rapper, comedian, music producer, and director – his YouTube videos have
become an internet sensation. Affion began his career as a dancer at age 10, winning breaking
and popping contests with his older brother. 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. Soon after, Affion combined his dance and impressionist talents
to develop his stand up act. After graduating from Fayetteville State University, with a bachelor’s
degree in business, Affion set his sights on the entertainment industry.
Affion was introduced to the world on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, demonstrating his crystal clear
impressions and physical comedy, for which he was labeled the next Jim Carrey. He was also the
break out star on MTV’s ‘Wild’n Out’ with Nick Cannon. He has appeared on ‘Curb Your
Enthusiasm,’ ‘black-ish’, ‘The Comedians’ with Billy Crystal, and ‘The Guest Book’. Crockett
also co-starred in the films, ‘Dance Flick’ with the Wayans Brothers, ‘Welcome Home Roscoe
Jenkins’ with Martin Lawrence, ‘Soul Men’ with Samuel L. Jackson and the late Bernie Mac, ‘A
Haunted House’ parts 1 & 2, ’50 Shades of Black’ alongside Marlon Wayans, and ‘The Wedding
Ringer’ with Kevin Hart.
Affion is also best known for his comedy niche with online sketch / parody videos garnering over
50 million views on YouTube. This caught the attention of Hip-Hop Mogul, Russell Simmons
and resulted in the launch of an original online comedy series titled ‘Hustles with Russells’
starring the two. This also sparked multiple viral commercial campaigns. For one commercial
Affion starred alongside Dr. Dre, and Lebron James, as well as one for Jay-Z’s clothing line
Rocawear, where Affion impersonates Jay-Z and the French twin dancers Les Twins.
Affion starred in and executive produced his own sketch comedy show for FOX called ‘In the
Flow with Affion Crockett,’ which was also executive produced by Jamie Foxx. The series
revealed a fresh take on pop culture with spoofs of movie trailers, commercials, TV shows, music
videos and celebrities.
Affion released his first comedy rap album shortly thereafter titled WATCH THE CLONE, with
spoofs of popular artists like Jay-Z, Kanye, Eminem, 2 Chainz and more. Available on iTunes
