Sherman’s Showcase is a new musical variety comedy show created and written by Diallo Riddle (Marlon, Silicon Valley) and Bashir Salahuddin (GLOW, A Simple Favor). Drawing inspiration from dance/variety shows Solid Gold, Soul Train and Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, each episode of Sherman’s Showcase 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 band in the 1970s, an R&B diva from the 1990s or an up-and-coming MC in 2019, Sherman’s Showcase has it all: music, comedy, famous guest stars, the Showcase dancers and an exuberant host who’s been with the show throughout its run.
