Featuring an all-African-American cast, The Jamie Foxx Show's humor relies more on good comedy writing than strong or demeaning racial stereotypes. The show presents a strong set of values, including the importance of family, hard work, and education. It's positive representation of African Americans in comedy led to multiple NAACP award nominations, as well as a NAACP Image Award for Foxx in 1998.
