14. "The Prostate exam sketch was funny AF and problematic." In response to Reply # 0
Like you want brothers to get prostate exams from a public health perspective so a sketch where they were making fun of a dude for getting one is problematic...but Meth as a doctor clowning dude was just damn funny.

I can see that, in a way. I thought the sketch was not about what can happen, but an exploration in the anxiety men feel about being vulnerable in that situation. Kind of like, airing out the fears to make less of them...but then the act was never followed up to resolve the notion.
also, very very very weird to see meth so serious. I felt like i was looking at an alternate reality version of Clifford Smith Jr.

Same way his vaccine episode could be seen as problematic. That is, him saying out loud on a big platform that he questions the vaccine and doesn't want to take it will get him in trouble with a certain set and not really towing the party line.
The thing is, Che sounds more in sync with regular black people not on twitter than a lot of black twitter.
I mean, look at these people who can not believe that he is not familiar with the term AAVE?

I was skeptical of the show (not sure why, I liked his stand-up special and Weekend Update is usually the highlight of SNL every week) until a friend insisted I watch it, even offered to put up for the six-pack AND the blunt if I just gave it a chance...
We watched that shit front to back, then did it AGAIN the next weekend. Most comedy shows these days just have me smirking and appreciating the wit and weirdness (I tried to shift him over to I Think You Should Leave which got dismissed almost immediately as "your dumb white boy shit") but this show had us legit screaming for three straight hours even when we knew what the jokes were.
