HBO‘s ‘A Black Lady Sketch Show’ has been forced to face a wave of negative reviews following its unveiling on August 2nd.
Full story below…
The series is powered by Issa Rae, Quinta Bronson, Ashley Nicole Black and Gabrielle Dennis and features performances from some of the world’s most recognisable and revered black actresses. See Angela Bassett, Laverne Cox, Aja Naomi King and Loretta Devine.
Unfortunately, the days following its launch were weighed down by talk that the show was missing the mark on a number of comedic fronts.

The second episode of A Black Lady Sketch Show was definitely better than the first one.
