Affion Crockett on 'Good Day New York'Never heard of Affion Crockett? That might change after the premiere of 'In the Flow With Affion Crockett,' (Sundays, 9PM ET on Fox) a new sketch comedy show produced by Jamie Foxx. Crockett talked about the show and his comedy career Friday on 'Good Day New York' (weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox).

Crockett has been mostly a supporting player in films like 'Soul Men' and 'Dance Flick,' as weel as providing voices for 'The Boondocks.' He's been a working comedian and made his mark on 'Nick Cannon Presents: Wild N' Out' and on YouTube with impressions of Barack Obama and Jay-Z. "I wanted to make it more into a sketch situation with make-up and scenarios and all of that," he said, comparing his 'Wild N' Out' work to 'In the Flow.'

Crockett also displayed some of his impressions, holding a conversation as Russell Simmons and speaking as Barack Obama, who was in New York City Thursday. "Traffic was backed up," said Crockett, affecting Obama's pauses and vocal tics, "all the way uptown, downtown, meat packing district, and uh ... it's all because of me."
