A Black Lady Sketch Show: Conversation Between Robin Thede and Issa Rae – BTS of Season 1 | HBO


I was on another show,
and it got canceled. And you called me and I was
like, “Aw, this is nice. You’re calling to console me.” -Nope.
-And you weren’t. -You were like,
“Yeah, so what’s next?
-No. -What are we doing?”
-“What’s next?
What you wanna do, girl? ‘Cause I’m ready.
Let’s work together.” ♪ (HIP HOP MUSIC PLAYS) ♪ You are actually
on the sketch show in a number of sketches. ISSA RAE: It was intimidating,-but it was so much fun.
-Was it? I– It was intimidating also
because I knew that I was gonna break it
every scene, which I did. But yeah, it was scary.
It was like all these women are at the top of their game.
They’re killing it.They get to be goofy
in a way.
The guest actors and actresses
that came who were just game
-to have a good time
-Yeah. and have fun and it shows. That’s what we talked about
a lot, was being able
to provide this spacefor black women in comedy
at all levels.
I think what also makes
this show so unique is that while
it’s specifically cast, it’s also universally funny. People are gonna be blown away, I think, by what they see
and who jumps in. ♪ (MUSIC CONCLUDES) ♪
