After seeing the trailer, I fell in love and was laughing out loud. This is comedy genius. When Robin Thede’s show was cancelled on BET she didn’t wallow and sit around feeling sorry for herself, she rose up like a BOSS and created something great, something we didn’t even know that we needed until we saw it in action. It’s the first series of its kind, and representation is important. Bringing a group of talented, hilarious and smart Black women together for this series.
A sketch comedy show starring, written by and directed primarily by black women, including the first Black woman sketch director. Produced by Issa Rae, provides a showcase for the four comedians who make up its core cast: creator Robin Thede, Ashley Nicole Black, Quinta Brunson and Gabrielle Dennis. This show hosts a slew of amazing guest stars within the far to few episodes that makes me tear up.
Premieres on HBO on Aug 2 at 8 pm.
