In honor of Black History Month here is your homework to educate yourself on some of the best Black Comedians of our time. This month watch:
Eddie Murphy – “Raw” (I am one of the few people who prefers “Raw” over “Delirious”)
Richard Pryor – “Live at the Sunset Strip” (The famous special after the freebase incident)
Chris Rock – “Bigger & Blacker” (The 5k Bullet joke is one of my faves)
Dave Chappelle – “Age of Spin” (The 4 times he met Mr. Juice!)
There are many more great black comedians like Patrice O’Neal, Bernie Mac, and Tiffany Haddish to check out. These just some of my favorite specials. I feel stand up comedy is one of the more diverse groups out there. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from, just be funny. Our differences are what makes us great!
