Comedian and actress Amanda Seales created a monthly comedy game show in Los Angeles that celebrates all aspects of black culture:
“On a recent Tuesday night, a line winds its way through the warren of bookshelves at Meltdown Comics on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, populated with people eager to snag a seat for the monthly comedy game show Smart, Funny & Black. As a regular, I know to arrive early — a lot of these people will wind up standing, but they’re probably OK with that too.
Created, written and hosted by actress and comedian Amanda Seales, the show explores the convergence of black popular culture, politics and current events. “I wanted to create a show that was celebratory of black culture,” Seales explains.”
