It's been a while since I've featured any comedy. This is note-perfect, both writing and acting.
An incidental commentary in passing from the conservative columnist David Brooks:
"Among the less educated, anxiety flows from and inflames a growing sense that the structures of society are built for the exploitation of people like themselves. Everything is rigged; the rulers are malevolent and corrupt.
"Last weekend’s 'Black Jeopardy' skit on 'Saturday Night Live' did a beautiful job of showing how this sensation overlaps among both progressive African-Americans and reactionary Trumpians."
Even if you've seen it already it stands watching again. Listen to the audience. Made me laugh, too.
"Open Mike" is the off-topic editorial page of TOP. It is rumored to appear on Wednesdays.
