Share via

Jamie Foxx went from up-and-coming comedian to TV (the just-ended “The Jamie Foxx Show”) and movie star (“Any Given Sunday,” “Bootie Call” and the upcoming “Ali”). But his popularity stems from his comedic abilities, which he’ll show off Sunday at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center. Foxx, who just was host of the MTV Video Music Awards, draws his comedy from almost everybody-a touch Eddie Murphy, a bit Richard Pryor, with a Steve Allen-ish satire and impersonations thrown in.* Jamie Foxx, Oxnard Performing Arts Center, 800 Hobson Way, Oxnard. 7 p.m. $35. (213) 480-3232.
