A Black Lady Sketch Show brings us to a mystical world where no boundaries exist. It revolves around the five leads and famous guests who perform several sketches. It is filled with laughter, irreverence, and self-confidence and provides us with many fantastic scenes that can undoubtedly be shared in social media.
In one of the sketches, the characters talk about ashy skin and a support group that gives their thoughts on Instagram’s ludicrous expectations of beauty, including lash extensions and waist trainers — which also require women to be “bad bitches.”
Thede, Black, Brunson, and Dennis pursue yet another sketch as they reveal their distorted peers to the stereotyped grades of blackness. One season’s episode pays tribute to the “Pose” and the ballroom culture, while the other updates the original “Romeo and Juliet” story by mixing it with hip hop and pop culture.
A Black Lady Sketch Show features a full cast created of black women, including black writers and producers. This is a remarkable fact in itself. Furthermore, it concentrates on the close bond between the leading figures and the uncanny ingenuity in its onscreen sketches. It brings the much-needed twist to TV comedy with its smooth writing and narration.
