Jamie Foxx is a true Renaissance man who’s conquered television, music and film over the past two decades. True fans also know the funnyman is no stranger to stand-up comedy, and he dropped his last special, Jamie Foxx Unleashed: Lost, Stolen and Leaked!, in 2002.

During GREY GOOSE® vodka’s Live Vicariously event in New York City, Foxx surprised happy hour patrons by playing bartender, grabbing the mic to not only rev up the crowd but also to announce he’ll soon be hitting the road for his next comedy tour, Kill the Comedian. Though he didn’t share exact dates, he will be coming to a city near you before year’s end.

“Sometimes you gotta turn up on a Tuesday… blame it on the bartender!,” Jamie wrote on Instagram during the event. “#LiveVictoriously✌🏾@greygoose #GreyGoosePartner.”

When Foxx’s 2010 hit song “Blame It” started playing at the bar, the entertainer jokingly rolled his eyes before telling the DJ to “turn it up!” He eventually insisted the DJ cut the “all-Foxx playlist” in favor of Beyoncé, Cardi B and other tunes designed “for the ladies.”

“GREY GOOSE is a luxury product, but this positioning has also impaired our ability to fully connect with consumers; more often, they reserve GREY GOOSE for very special occasions,” said Lee Applbaum, the brand’s global chief marketing officer. “Live Victoriously seeks to change this perception and encourage consumers to recognize that they are the special occasion and that every moment is an opportunity to create a lifelong memory.”
