Black News Satire

Has anyone watched the new D.L. Hughley show on CNN? Or how about Chocolate News? Sadly, they're both pretty bad.


oh shit. i thought they were the same thing! ;)

When has David Allen Grier ever been funny? It's like he thinks something's funny IF YOU JUST SHOUT THE LAST COUPLE WORDS.

And he's part of that 80s black comedian thing where you just talk about racial stereotypes constantly...

For someone from an improv background, D.L. seems really nervous and uncomfortable on his show.

People say DAG is always the funny guy stuck in unfunny shows (except for that thing with Bonnie Hunt). I'm beginning to think maybe that's not so much the case.

Whether DL Hughley is funny I will never know, because I can't get past the no-eyebrows thing. Like Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Daschle, and Dick Gephardt before him, I can't hear a word he says because I am too distracted by that creepy, unnaturally bald brow. All I get is the Charlie Brown teacher noise, and after ten seconds or so I have to change the channel. Maybe eyebrowless people are just misunderstood, but I say they cannot be trusted. YEGGH!
