Smart, Funny, and Black returned to the Apollo as part of the weeklong New York Comedy Festival. Last night’s Blacksperts were the hilarious Tituss Burgess (he can sang!) and Michelle Buteau. They both came onstage decked out in yellow. They said it was unplanned. Amanda Seales was backed by her band, The Clapbacks.
The movie was all types of ridiculous–in a good way. Based on a Twitter thread of 100+ tweets, it follows a Detroit waitress named Zola (played by Taylor Paige) who gets roped into taking a roadtrip down to Florida for the weekend on a quest to make a quick payday stripping.
