Class Act
15 November 2017 | by collinal90See all my reviews

This stand-up set is smart, genuinely funny, and emotionally educational. DeRay Davis presents his humor and his opinions on current events and how they effect America (and even what else could be done) without an offended attitude. Truly, truly funny, and touching and honest at the same time. DeRay is a class act, celebrating where he's from, embracing where he is, and welcoming anyone who will listen to join him in search of possibilities. He actually succeeds in building bridges where the fear of racism and violence has left so many people in our culture frozen and unsure of what to think or say (Including myself, a white woman from an upper middle class upbringing, who's never lived in a place like Uptown Chicago) Yes... all this, I got from laughing at a man yelling about Harambe and mass shootings. The man knows what he's doing, and he's very good at it. Bravo, Netflix. Bravo, DeRay. If you dislike profanity, be warned there's plenty of it. But watch it anyway, if you can.
