    I am just shocked that this show is getting good reviews. to me it looked painfully unfunny, but after watching it i realized it is only just unfunny. i miss dave chappelle. at least they know this guy won't bail. he'd be stupid to give up on a job with his lack of talent.

    This is social satire, and Grier's job is to make a mainstream audience see race and power in new ways. That often involves shock.

    Credit Grier for trying, credit Comedy Central for adding another voice to the mix, and keep hoping that a show like this eventually hits its stride.
  3. It pales-- satirically speaking, anyway--when compared with the "Daily Show," especially with Chocolate's tired sketch about imaginary rapper Phat Man. More promising is a bit in which Grier's Maya Angelou recites a poem penned to commemorate a McCain victory
