About the Show
NO SHOW 2/23
Black kids rarely get to have fun. They’re too busy stumbling upon dead bodies in John Singleton films, or being the snarky mentee for single white leads in romantic comedies, or being the one diverse kid in a small town where aliens and supernatural creatures are DOING THE MOST. Teen Cudi (Devin Middleton & Jordan Stafford) are two black boys who just want to be silly and maybe a little thought provoking, but mostly silly because neither of them are sociology professors at this time and definitely aren’t making sociology professor money. It is our sincere hope that you laugh, ponder, and see yourself represented in this sketch revue called Black Boy Joy.
