Sherman's Showcase

AMC Studios

Drawing inspiration from dance/variety shows Solid Gold, Soul Train and Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, each episode is hosted by Sherman McDaniels as he takes viewers through time, via music and comedy drawn from the 40-year library of a legendary (but fictional) musical variety show.

Whether it’s a questionably-attired funk super group in the 1970s, an up-and-coming MC in the 1980s or an R&B diva from the 1990s, Sherman’s Showcase has it all: music, comedy, gameshow segments, political roundtables, commercial parodies, breakout hits destined to climb the charts, a dancing robot and a legendary host who’s been there from the beginning.

Guest starring in the first season are (alphabetically): Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor; Emmy®-, GRAMMY®– and Oscar®-winner Common, Morris Day, Emmy®-winner Tiffany Haddish, Lil Rel Howery, Emmy®-, GRAMMY®-, Oscar®– and Tony®-winner Quincy Jones, Emmy®-winner Mike Judge, Kenny and Keith Lucas, Emmy®-, GRAMMY®-, Oscar®– and Tony®-winner John Legend, Nigel Lythgoe, Curt Menefee, Vic Mensa, Tawny Newsome, GRAMMY®-winner Ne-Yo, Ray Parker Jr., Mario Van Peebles, Damon Wayans Jr., Marlon Wayans and Bresha Webb.
