Affion Crockett (born August 12, 1974) is an American actor, writer, dancer, rapper, comedian and music producer. He has appeared in many films and television shows, and had his own TV sketch comedy show, the short-lived 2011 series In the Flow with Affion Crockett. Crockett was raised in France and Fayetteville, North Carolina. One of Crockett’s grandfathers was Chinese Trinidadian.
At age 10, he began entering and winning breaking and popping contests with his older brother. Later on, he honed his impression skills by imitating anyone from his mother’s West Indian dialect or his schoolteacher’s southern drawl to the Scarface’s choppy Cuban accent.
He attended Fayetteville State University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in business.
