Sherman's Showcase is a satirical comedy series that first aired on the Independent Film Channel (IFC) in 2019. Created by Bashir Salahuddin and Diallo Riddle, the show is essentially a parody of classic variety shows from the 1970s and '80s, complete with kitschy costumes, flamboyant dance numbers, and an enthusiastic studio audience.

The show is hosted by Salahuddin, who plays a character named Sherman McDaniel, Jr., the son of the original creator of Sherman's Showcase. Throughout the episodes, he guides the audience through various segments that feature original songs, skits, and parodies of famous TV shows and commercials.

One of the show's recurring bits is "The Showcase Dancers," who perform synchronized dance routines that often have a comedic twist. Another popular segment is "R&B Time Machine," in which famous musicians from various eras are parodied in performances of original songs that poke fun at their musical styles.

The show is presented as if it's a long-running series that spans several decades, and each episode takes the audience through different eras of television history. As such, the show has a nostalgic feel, but it also incorporates modern pop culture references and social commentary.

In addition to Salahuddin, the show features a diverse cast of talented actors, singers, and dancers. Among them is Tiffany Daniels, who plays the role of "Aunty Fee," a character who provides humorous cooking tips and commentary on various topics throughout the show. Devere Rogers also appears in several skits and musical performances, showcasing his impressive singing and dancing abilities.

Overall, Sherman's Showcase is a unique and entertaining comedy series that pays homage to classic variety shows while also offering fresh, original content. It's a perfect choice for anyone who loves musical comedy, satire, or just a good laugh.

Sherman's Showcase is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (15 episodes). The series first aired on July 31, 2019.
