Many of you probably remember Flex Alexander as the star of the hit television show One On One and several other hit shows from the 90’s and into the 2000’s, but what many did not know is that Flex was also a stand up comedian and hip hop dancer for many years before his acting career took off.
Well, fast forward to today and we spoke to Flex at his red carpet event for his new hit TV show on OWN titled Flex & Shanice, which is a reality show about Flex and his wife, singer Shanice and about living in Hollywood and all of the trials and tribulations of that life.
The show debuted its first episode this past weekend (Saturday) and during its pilot, Flex announced to the world that he was coming back to the stage and with the encouragement of his wife, he finally did so after 20 years. While this is no secret to those living in Los Angeles as he has hit several stages from The Comedy Union to Inside Jokes Comedy Club, this is surely to be news to the rest of the world as a star comes back to the stage!
Flex & Shanice is Executive Produced by Jeff Dyson and Vernon Lynch of Lynch-Dyson Entertainment and is broadcast every Saturday at 10PM.
