hysterical, 9 January 2009
Author: disdressed12 from Canada

i thought this show was hysterical.yes,it is offensive,crude and vulgar,but so what.the show does seem to make fun of white people(which i happen to be)but that's exactly what it is--fun.people need to get over themselves and stop being so uptight.besides, a lot of the jokes pretty much reflect how many white people behave.if you can't take a joke,then turn off all your TVs and hide yourself in a cave.i don't think the jokes are cruel or mean,either.anyway,i laughed my butt of so much i had tears running down my eyes.David Alan Grier is the star of the show and plays most of the characters.i think he's very funny.i'm gonna try and catch this show every time it's on.it's the only show on The Comedy Network(here in Canada)which i have actually found worth watching. 10/10
