When Ashley Nicole Black left Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, everyone was wondering where she would turn up next. As it would turn out, she’s turned up over at HBO in an exciting new show called A Black Lady Sketch Show. Produced by Issa Rae and written by Robin Thede, in this show they put black women front and center and use comedy to discuss the perils and amazing experiences that black women experience just being themselves. The show features the first black woman led comedy writer’s room and the first all-black writing team and the first all-black female writing team. The best part is that they are on HBO so the language will fly!
We compiled some of their promotional sketches to show off how much fun this show is to watch. Angela Bassett
