Stephen Curry Filmed A Cheesy Television Show At Davidson College

Before Curry became a two-time MVP and a three-time NBA champion, Curry did what every college kid does — act like a goofball.

During his time at Davidson, Curry and some of his friends were the stars of “The Davidson Show.” The show was a sketch comedy web series.

This is how they described their show:

“The first season of the show featured six episodes, one a month from November to April 2008.

The first four had a decidedly “newsy” aspect to them, as anchors Darrell Scott ’10 and Christie Mason ’10 introduced segments and relayed stories of campus events, while Grant Clark ’10 gave an off-color weather report.

Popular during these episodes were the segments “Naked at the Movies”, featuring movie reviews in the nude by Tyler “Chip” Lemons ’10 and Patrick “Fitz” Fitzgerald ’08, and “Cop Talk” featuring amusing yet informative messages by Police Chief Fountain Walker.

Episode five was hosted by Bryant Barr ’10 and Stephen Curry ’10 in the middle of their March Madness run, with the season being punctuated with a wildly popular segment in which our staff took on the basketball team in a game of 2 versus 2.

This creation of Craig Stewart ’09 would ultimately shift the show away from news and into a variety format.”
