They’re creating cinematic storylines based on their personal experiences and addressing the power disparity that has long plagued the film business. Yess! We enjoy seeing it! Also, in certain very crucial circumstances, they make us laugh so hard that we can’t stop. And that’s what I’m going to focus on today, because who couldn’t use a bit  of laughing right now? Exactly.

Nicole Byer

We appreciate the novelist, stand-up comedian, and actor since she isn’t known for family-friendly comedy. She boldly talks body image, sex, and Black culture, beautifully intertwining the issues. She also appears to be doing a million things at once, from recording one of her several podcasts to presenting Nailed It! on Netflix to writing a book.

Wanda Sykes

Wanda Sykes is difficult to name on a list of amusing Black female comedians. At the age of 56, Sykes is one of the most famous touring comedians today. Sykes is a stand-up comedian, actress, and writer who has acted in sitcoms and films in addition to her long-running stand-up comedy career.

Maya Rudolph

Her sketch humor gets to the heart of political issues while simultaneously making you cry and laugh. Also noteworthy is her depiction of Kamala Harris on Saturday Night Live.

Gina Yashere

Yashere, a British comedian, provides social commentary on US politics with an outsider’s perspective and a critical eye.

Her previous specials include Skinny Bitch in 2008 and her appearance on the comic series The Stand-ups. She also co-created and executive produced the CBS comedy Bob Hearts Abishola.

Tiffany Haddish

Tiffany Haddish has become a household name as a result of her breakout role in Girls Trip. Her Netflix special, Black Mitzvah, which debuted on her 40th birthday, explains her lengthy journey to adulthood and her discovery of her Jewish lineage, as well as hilarious singing and dancing.
