He also hosted three seasons of ABC's "Vacation Creation." Voiceover credits include "Black Dynamite," "Happily Ever After: Fairy Tales for Every Child" and "The Proud Family," which earned him five NAACP Image Award nominations.

He has had three Showtime specials "On the Strength in N.Y.C.," "Illin' in Philly," and "Takin' it to DC," and hosted and starred in the popular "Chocolate Sundaes" comedy show. He also headlined "The Off Color Comedy Tour" with Keenen Ivory Wayans, Shawn Wayans and David Alan Grier.
In February 2020, Davidson released a personal memoir "Living in Color: What's Funny About Me," which recounts his triumphs as having been abandoned as in infant, and adopted and raised by a Caucasian family in Washington, D.C. during the Civil Rights Movement.
