David Alan Grier stopped by to promote his new Comedy Central series, "Chocolate News," and told Robin that she once ignored him at the gym years ago. Robin said she didn't remember the incident, so David shot back that it was a race issue: "You were [ignoring me, talking to your white trainer] like, 'Excuse me, black man.'" Howard asked if David had ever pulled a Chappelle-style flip-out over race issues and gone back to Africa, but David dismissed the idea: "I went to Africa to look at animals." Howard told David that he always thought he was gay, but David countered: "No, I love pussy...My wife is Korean...My first wife was Puerto Rican." David then told a story about one of Jim Carrey's hilarious characters that never made it to the air on "In Living Color": "He [would] pull out 40 feet of colon use it as a rope to lasso people." David added that he never would've predicted fellow cast member Jamie Foxx's success: "If you would've told me that 'Ugly Girl' would win an Oscar...I'm jealous as f'."
DAG Isn't a 'Seinfeld'
David told the crew about auditioning for the role of George Costanza on "Seinfeld": "It was the worst audition ever...[Jerry] was horrible! He was horrible, he made me horrible. [I thought] this will never work." David laughed that he was also repeatedly approached to become a character on "Cheers": "Every six months or so they said, 'They're looking for a black bartender'...[it always came to] nothing!"
