Somehow it’s popular for black Instagram comedians to wear wigs, heel, and dresses to be funny! @KingKwajo once wrote a post how Hollywood has emasculated black actors by having them dress up like a female. Now today you see how it’s effect comedians on Instagram in this generation. It’s not funny nor cool to dress like a female for laughs. There’s another ways to be funny, you don’t have to act like a female too!
Peele: Keegan and my race has really played to our advantage in the improv/sketch world. It’s also a bit of a special power. We can do characters that other people would feel uncomfortable doing. We can play black characters and explore the comedy of black characters. There’s a whole world of characters and impressions that black women can do that other people — just on the social level, disregarding the practice and skill that goes into perfecting these things, but just on the social level — people would feel uncomfortable doing. They should hire some black women. Not a black woman — black women.
