David Alan Grier David Alan Grier

David Alan Grier's name has been associated with dancing more so than anything else this year, with his appearances on Dancing with the Stars and in Dance Flick. But this weekend, DAG is going back to his standup roots. As part of Chicago's Just for Laughs comedy festival, Grier will host the standup special Comedy You Can Believe In with David Alan Grier (Sunday, 10 pm/ET, TBS), featuring a roster of comedians. The emphasis is on the word "host."

"There's nothing worse than a host who does his act," Grier tells TVGuide.com. "My main thing is to keep this thing running, keep it funny, keep it flowing and the focus on these funny comics."
