Black Jesus

Show Summary

Black Jesus is the live-action Adult Swim series from The Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder which follows the adventures of Black Jesus. Adult Swim is the cable network that shares channel space with Cartoon Network, taking over the airwaves from 9:00PM to 6:00AM for some wild and crazy adult-oriented fun. The channel launched in 2001, and features animated shows, both original and syndicated, often geared to the 18 and up crowd. With hit shows like The Venture Bros., Robot Chicken, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and more, the channel has cemented itself as a cult favorite amongst late night viewers who might be under the influence of certain substances. Aaron McGruder is the cartoonist best known for creating the controversial satirical comic strip The Boondocks, and now he has taken his signature style to live-action with Black Jesus. We join an outspoken black Jesus as he gives the secrets to Steve Jobs' success, turns water into Hennessy, heads to the club and many more hilarious adventures. Tune in for the hilarious hijinks of a street-smart savior in Adult Swim's Black Jesus.

  • LOL and ROFL

    I'm not Christian but boy is this a funny show.

    I agree with other posters, this show really does give a warm message and what's wrong with that? Absolutely nothing!
  • Praise be to Jesus!

    Not only is this show laugh out loud funny, but it sends a good message too. Was Jesus really a blonde, blue-eyed stiff? He was a man who embraced the disenfranchised and the poor in society. This is the best thing to happen to Christianity in a long time. Too many Christians today have lost touch with what it means to follow his example in my opinion. I think this comedy program serves as a not too subtle reminder.moreless
  • Not funny

    I have no clue what the first two reviewers are talking about, but this show is not worth watching in my opinion.
  • why cant we just laugh

    It was a good episode looking forward to more. Its Aaron McGruder people ever seen The Boondocks its suppose to be funny not to be southern conservative its black jesus why the hell would you watch it if it said that im a 28 year old black man my dad always told me Jesus was black how would he survive he died when I was 15. So you don't have to watch it if you didnt like it watch family guy its the complete opposite right for conservatives. McGruder is like an activist watched all his shows and have his comics. So Just let it gomoreless
  • More of the same...

    Again we see more of the black version being the bad version. When will America let up on the black bad montra. All of this bs is designed to slip in the constant message that black is bad, black is less as a device to keep up the anger and fight. Oh yea it's just a joke, if we can't laugh at ourselves shame on us. You see how this all flows together. This is NOT black. WORDS control the world and we all know it. Messaging is the key to moving public opinion. I also call bs on the venturing into new territory artistic, comedic aspect of this crap. PS I am white guy from the south and a republican and this show sucked.
