New Netflix comedy feat. Epps & Sykes

It looks like Netflix may have another comedy hit other hands. The streaming service is gearing up for a new comedy series The Upshaws starring Kim Fields, Wanda Sykes, and Mike Epps. The multi-camera comedy series centers on a Black, working-class family struggling to make it work in Indiana and we can’t wait to see Kim Fields in a leading role. According to Deadline, the Living Single and RHOA alum will play Regina Upshaw, Lucretia’s (Sykes) sister and Bennie’s (Epps) high school sweetheart, now wife, and the mother of his three children. Regina works in medical billing at a local hospital and struggles to stay upbeat and keep her family happy — and her husband in check — while pursuing goals of her own. Epps will play Bennie Upshaw, the lovable, charming, thug-adjacent head of the Upshaw family. He runs a garage in Indianapolis and is constantly butting heads with his sister-in-law, Lucretia, who believes her sister could have and do better. As a husband and father of four chi..

Don Cheadle ‘Black Monday’ season 2 trailer

Don Cheadle and Regina Hall are back to their old tricks if the just-dropped Black Monday is any indication. Showtime debuted the new season’s first trailer at the TCAs on Monday and in it, we see Maurice “Mo” Monroe (Cheadle) looking a little crazy in the aftermath of the largest stock market crash in history. Don Cheadle and Regina Hall are Wall Street’s worst nightmares in ‘Black Monday’ Judging by the trailer, this season will see Dawn (Hall) and Blair (Andrew Rannells) in charge now that Mo is on the run and they quickly learn how hard it is to be the boss. “The exciting part about doing the second season was we sort of left Blair at the end of Season 1 on the precipice of making a lot of personal decisions,” Rannells said during the show’s TCA panel, “and then this season we really got to launch into them. He gets dark real fast.” We can’t wait to see who will take the fall for the crash or the murders that went down during season 1. Loose lips: Don Cheadle refuses to do mo..

Dave Chappelle gets deep: Mark Twain Prize speech

Who knew that after 30-plus years in a career that has ranged from small stages at tiny nightclubs to the biggest stages at the most exclusive venues (and also movies, and a modern classic TV show), Dave Chappelle would wind up with one of the highest honors given to comedians and comedy writers? But in his eight-minute acceptance speech, given in October but released this week, he managed to speak volumes — which he usually does — and makes the remarks about culture and comedy that has kept him on the edge all these years. So here are the top four takeaways from Chappelle accepting the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. OPINION: Dave Chappelle’s new Netflix comedy special is funny, but I can see why people are mad On the First Amendment: “I know comics that are very racist and I watch them on stage and everyone’s laughing and I’m like “hmm that m*****f*****r means that s**t….It’s not that serious. (The) First Amendment is first for a reason. Second Amendment is just in case the ..
