Since its debut on HBO in the summer of 2019, A Black Lady Sketch Show has been a critics’ darling. Created by actress-writer Robin Thede and executive produced by Issa Rae, the show follows in the tradition of In Living Color, Saturday Night Live (SNL), and Key and Peele but from a Black woman’s perspective.
BGN sat down with popular and returning cast members, Gabrielle Dennis and Ashley Nicole Black, to discuss what’s new and next on the second season, which includes a slew of celeb guests including Rae, Gabrielle Union, Laz Alonzo, Grey’s Anatomy’s Jesse Williams, Skai Jackson, and Lance Gross.
