!DeRay, developed and honed a hip, sardonic, streetwise mentality at an early age and parlayed it smoothly and efficiently into the comedy-club circuit. Davis achieved his career breakthrough at the Laffapalooza Festival
in Atlanta, GA, then scored a triple whammy by winning the Comedy Central Laugh Riots
competition and landing covetable spots in the Montreal Just for Laughs
festival and the Cedric the Entertainer festival
. Throughout, the comic wove vulgar and droll, yet also telling and deeply personal, routines around the subjects of race, poverty, and his challenging experiences growing up in the Windy City projects with a dysfunctional African-American family.The transition from behind-the-mike spots to movie roles represented a relatively short jump, for most of Davis' early film assignments emphasized the same subject matter as his routines; for example, he played the "Hustle Guy" in Barbershop
, and its sequel Barbershop 2: Back in Busines , rapper Mario "Fa Real" Greene in
the Martin Short comedy Jiminy Glick in La La Wood
, and a Jamaican stoner in Johnson Family Vacation
Davis expanded his genre focus with roles in Rupert Wainwright's supernatural horror outing The Fog
, and Todd Phillips' comedy remake School for Scoundrels
. Subsequent feature assignments include License to Wed, Semi-Pro (as basketball player Bee Bee Ellis) Imagine That, Life As We Know It
and Old Dogs
Davis also appeared on television series including Entourage
and Reno 911!
, and televised comedy revues such as Comedy Central's Premium Blend
