  • A game show featuring several different people from different races and ethnic backgrounds competing on a gameshow to reveal how much they know about black people.

    This episode features the best game show parody since SNL's "Celebrity Jeopardy!" sketches. However, it is not the parody that makes this sketch great. What makes it great is the context for which this sketch was made. Dave says during the intro to the sketch that there were people complaining that the show was offensive to black people. Well, obviously some people don't know that much about black people. So Dave had a bunch of people come onto the show to find out just how well some people knew black people. Most of this sketch is not written, however the comedy comes from the brilliance behind the concept and the questions that WERE written for the game show. The questions themselves are funny because they poke fun at stereotypes but the contestants make it funnier by their reactions to them. By far one of the most brilliantly executed sketches on the show.
