There’s solely been one season of HBO’s A Black Woman Sketch Present thus far, but it surely’s positively been memorable. The Emmy-nominated comedy sketch collection debuted on Aug. 2 with a core forged made up of comedic geniuses Robin Thede, Ashley Nicole Black, Gabrielle Dennis, and Quinta Brunson, and boasts the primary black girl director and black girl head author of a sketch comedy present ever.
Skits like “Dangerous B*tch Help Group” and “Rome and Julissa” not solely embody a powerful array of visitor stars like Angela Bassett, Patti LaBelle, Laverne Cox, Nicole Byer, and government producer Issa Rae, however in addition they present viewers with a brand-new expertise: a black girl’s tackle sketch comedy. A few of ABLSS’s skits explicitly handle race and gender (just like the recurring “Hertep,” who isn’t invited to any weddings sooner or later), whereas others are simply pure enjoyable and showcase the wide selection of expertise that the core forged of actresses possess. I imply, what number of actresses can pull off a mixture of Shakespearean iambic pentameter and web chat-speak as an instance the Nicki Minaj/Cardi B stan tradition?

Try a few of the highlights from the collection’s freshman season and catch ABLSS for your self, on HBO.
