Listen I’m 53 years old but I gotta say this just sounds like a bunch of bitter people.. The Richard Pryor’s and Eddie Murphy’s of the comic world would say these people didn’t have to travel the road they traveled too and I bet they’d argue that.. if these kids are making it by doing skits and memes and the like then how is that not real? How doesn’t 450,000 likes a comic make?? If you had a FREE show TODAY 450,000 people wouldn’t show Ms Lunell so how is that not relevant 🤷🏽‍♂️ More people are familiar with those people than Lunell who’s form of “comedy” is to be the ratchet, ghetto old nasty lady of the crew like that’s something new and different 😂 There are skit makers on US-first who are living in mansions and driving lambos while you still do low budget “how to be a player” type movies because you refuse to conform and get with the times!!! LISTEN UP FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK.. THE POINT IS TO WORK SMARTER NOT HARDER!!

This is wildly unfunny especially that thing with the hair condition. If you think this is funny then you should donate all your money to a black homeless person right now. That’s right, move out and find a homeless person and give them your house because that’s the only right thing to do, according to you.

I found that the most profound statement made was the line made by the lady in yellow. Her image and quote brought me here, so why her name wasn't mentioned is beyond me.

Donnell is brilliant for ashy Larry. It's one of those characters you can see hundreds of times, any mood you are in. Shit's going to make you laugh.

This is not *dark* humour. It is very *light* humour. "𝑫𝒂𝒓𝒌 𝒉𝒖𝒎𝒐𝒓, 𝒔𝒐𝒎𝒆𝒕𝒊𝒎𝒆𝒔 𝒌𝒏𝒐𝒘𝒏 𝒂𝒔 𝒃𝒍𝒂𝒄𝒌 𝒄𝒐𝒎𝒆𝒅𝒚, 𝒅𝒂𝒓𝒌 𝒄𝒐𝒎𝒆𝒅𝒚, 𝒎𝒐𝒓𝒃𝒊𝒅 𝒉𝒖𝒎𝒐𝒓, 𝒐𝒓 𝒈𝒂𝒍𝒍𝒐𝒘𝒔 𝒉𝒖𝒎𝒐𝒓, 𝒊𝒔 𝒂 𝒔𝒕𝒚𝒍𝒆 𝒐𝒇 𝒄𝒐𝒎𝒆𝒅𝒚 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒎𝒂𝒌𝒆𝒔 𝒍𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕 𝒐𝒇 𝒔𝒖𝒃𝒋𝒆𝒄𝒕 𝒎𝒂𝒕𝒕𝒆𝒓 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒊𝒔 𝒈𝒆𝒏𝒆𝒓𝒂𝒍𝒍𝒚 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒔𝒊𝒅𝒆𝒓𝒆𝒅 𝒕𝒂𝒃𝒐𝒐"

@merickful That's a compelling argument. Hard to argue with it.

You're wrong because I say so.

@Bigbearjblaze Except that the phrase already exists, and race has nothing to do with it's focus. If they advertise "Dark humour", and then deliver "Light humour", we've been ripped-off because them being dishonest. A dark guy, doing *dark* humour, would be a reasonable word-play. But this is just inaccurate.

It's a pun about race b/c in 2021 nothing can exist without race being the main focus...
