On Michael Che’s Netflix special, he points out how absurd it is that the phrase Black Lives Matter is controversial. “That’s where we’re starting the negations. Matters. We always ask for the lowest common denominator — the lowest rights.” His conversational delivery and observational wit made Michael Che Matters one of the best Netflix comedy specials of 2016. It’s also what’s makes his stint on SNL’s Weekend Update so important to the success of the show as a beacon for political satire. He’s taking his distinct political and comedic point of view on the road with three shows in Oakland, along with Cipha Sounds, host of TruTV’s hilarious comedy show Laff Mobb’s Laff Tracks, where comedians tell outrageous true stories that gets acted out by actors Drunken History-style. The two hope to discuss politics in these divisive times by being as honest and hysterical as they can be, which is needed right now.
