A Black Lady Sketch Show Review 2019 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online
Creator: Robin Thede
Stars: Robin Thede, Ashley Nicole Black, Quinta Brunson
“Sometimes I wish I was just an okay bitch,” says a member of the Bad Bitch Support Group in the first episode of A Black Lady Sketch Show.
Her comment is met with gasps of horror from the pedicured, glossy-lipped women who surround her. Just being okay, when you can be bad? Why would anyone want to do that?
A Black Lady Sketch Show, a new half-hour HBO comedy series created by Robin Thede, host of the prematurely canceled BET talk show The Rundown, subscribes to a similar philosophy. It never settles for just okay. Every sketch starts on one level, then keeps building on it until you have no idea how hilariously far from Earth it’s going to go. Anchored by four extremely versatile, hilarious black women — Thede, who also previously served as head writer for The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore; Ashley Nicole Black, formerly of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee; comedian Quinta Brunson; and Insecure’s Gabrielle Dennis — A Black Lady Sketch Show isn’t just funny. Its sketches are consistently clever and surprising, often concluding with twist endings that add a whole other layer to the jokes that had us rolling a couple of minutes ago.
It’s also very much what its title implies: a series dominated by black women and shaped by their viewpoints. While race informs a lot of the comedy, it’s never explored in relation to whiteness. In fact, there are no white people on this show, at least in the six episodes I’ve seen. Whiteness in this realm is, basically, irrelevant. Between A Black Lady Sketch Show, Sherman’s Showcase, and South Side, it’s a great moment for black-centric TV comedy, one that will hopefully last much longer than just a moment.
