Anthony Anderson (born August 15, 1970) is an American actor, comedian, writer and TV personality.

Early LifeEdit

Anderson was born in Los Angeles. His mother, Doris (née Hancox), was a telephone operator and actress, and his stepfather, Sterling Bowman, was a native of Little Rock, Arkansas, who moved to Los Angeles to work in the steel mill industry before opening a chain of three clothing stores. According to a DNA analysis, Anderson descends from the Bubi people of Bioko Island (Equatorial Guinea), and from the Tikar, Hausa, and Fulani people of Cameroon.

According to Anderson, his first try in the stand up comedy world was a bust. But kept on trying thanks to his future friend and fellow comedic actor Guy Torry. He and Guy would later act together in the 1999 film Life starring Eddie Murphy & Martin Lawrence.

CareerEdit

As years went on, Anthony Anderson became an accomplished actor, appearing in numerous films & TV shows including Transformers & Big Momma's House. His first acting job was on the NBC Saturday morning sitcom, Hang Time. He starred in the last two seasons of that show. He starred in other TV series that were mainly misses (save for the final two seasons of the venerable NBC cop & legal show Law & Order) before he hit the jackpot with the current ABC hit sitcom Black-ish, a show to which he co-stars with Tracie Ellis Ross & Laurence Fishburne. Even though he now has a hit series, he continues to star in films.

This summer while his hit show is on summer hiatus, Anthony Anderson will be the latest host of the 2nd successful Goodson-Todman panel show To Tell the Truth.
