Davidson started his career as a standup comedian in Washington DC, earning an ardent following via hard work in various comedy clubs.  As one of the cutting edge, young standups, he was spotted by huge concert promoters, who booked him as the opening act for major touring acts including Patti LaBelle, Kenny G and Luther Vandross.  It wasn’t long before he came to Hollywood performing stand-up at a number of clubs, including the Comedy Act Theatre, where he met Robert Townsend which led to his first national television appearance with a starring role in Partners in Crime.
