Jamie Foxx Explains His Stage Name On Colbert (Video)
Posted by Maitlynn on May 16 2018
So we all know and love him as Jamie Foxx, but it's actually a stage name he came up with during his stand-up comedy days! 

Jamie Foxx was born Eric Marlon Bishop. However, once he started preforming in comedy clubs and crushing it every time, other comedians tried to block him out! 

Now Foxx, being a real sly fox indeed, noticed there weren't many women coming out to improv nights so he decided to start putting himself in line under unisex names. 

Among many others, he stumbled upon Jamie Foxx and "heeeeyyyyy" it stuck and the name we all know and love today was born!
