"That Damn Michael Che"


          

I watched the first episode called Policin’ but I turned it off.

just felt like dude is working with white writers and had him clown BLM for a half hour.

Maybe I was in my feels but it just felt a bit... off.

I’ll try another episode to se if the vibe is better.

I think his POV wedges between black people and liberal progressive whites in a way that's interesting.

I just saw the first episode and want to watch more to see if he can walk that line.

It was very much like Sam Jay's comedy special album and she walks that line too, wasn't surprised to see was a writer on the show.

Michael Che has racial inequality burnout, along with that other poster. It just that he ain't as melodramatic as that post. Now it's just black cynicism.

the BLM fitbit sketch is how I felt when people was selling shirts with the Brianna Taylor phrase on it.

I laughed at that one and the brother as the police officer bit.

It could have sketch like scenes, but this show could very well just be straight narrative with absurd moments like Atlanta and Louie.

The sketches are a bit of a crutch

He was clowning white liberals.
I dug that first episode.
But his take on police seems to be pretty weak and individualized.
Didn't like the second episode so much.
I'm in for the season

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?

It just be a bunch of niggas in their twitter bubble arguing in their echo chamber. Outside of that shit it's a lot of niggas that feel the same way

His comedy sounds more like barbershop conversations than most cats doing comedy on tv.

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.
