Offensive and Unfunny
30 December 2008 | by cptnkeyesSee all my reviews

At first I expected the show to be a "Daily Show" or "Colbert Report" tailored to an African American audience like BET. But instead, the show turned out to be nothing but racist jokes and offensive depictions of races. Some defend it drawing parallels to the Chapel Show, but that show was funny not because it talked about stereotypes every episode, it was funny because it had comedy. Some of Chapels sketches were racist, but think of the Rick James and Prince sketches that became house hold catch phrases over night. This show however tries to get a few "hars" from constant and unending black jokes and rehashing of stereo types. If the comedy was not focused so much on race and deviated from its constant race humor, it would not be a bad show.
