no, i don't think they are funny…...
I've laughed at some of their work, but I did get the feeling many of their skits were to appeal to white peoples sense of humor toward degrading blacks, and their insecurities around black people.
Those skits you posted, I never watched because, seeing them now, they were exactly what I thought they'd be.
2 comments on this one - the first is beyond contempt:
1. If I've said it once, I've said it a hundred times - black people, stop talking to news cameras! Nothing on the news with US is ever good and it's ALWAYS used to show us as fools, criminals and/or degenerates..... to the WORLD.
2. The fight breaks out with one hoodrat bro attacking a "brutha" in dress shirt and tie who mugs like a fool for the camera. The "dress shirt and tie" on the clown is to say, "See. Don't let the so-called 'edjumoncated' among them fool you. Money, education, fame - they're ALL fools, criminals and/or degenerates."
Oh, and no, they're not funny. Soon as they organize, I'm sending the black police to arrest them.
You know like a good con man, I first saw some of their other work before this and laughed so loud till I woke the neghbors! But when I saw these two pieces I realized, they only let those who are good, work the propaganda
How could this, along with "In Living Color" , "The David Chappelle Show", and certain other forms of so-called modern day black comedy be not as offensive as, or even less offensive than Amos and Andy...which I hear was basically about two black men always trying some kind of get rich quick scheme, and failing? I hear that show was the Modern Day Sanford and Son. I don't think Amos and Any would even mock at slavery.
So my answer would be the same as those who watched "In Living Color". Yes it's funny in a way, but no it's not. You may even laugh a little, then feel discussed that you watched it.
if you put a little honey in with the poison it make the poison go down much smother…….
You realized it and so did Dave Chappelle when he walked away from a $50 million payday when he realized white folks were not laughing WITH him, but at him.
It's a hit and miss. Key and Peele are Bi-Racials. Sketch Comedy in general isn't too funny and is incredibly mocking. But whatcha gonna do? That's the (European) Art of Comedy.
When we give all of our money over to Whites, it only makes sense that Whites will find a way to get more. And I suppose if you must enjoy Comedy and you're poor and not looking to empower your people, Key and Peele is better than Saturday Night Live.
