Part of the Hertz Stage add-on

Recommended for adult audiences.

This hilarious one-man show by Dad’s Garage’s Mark Kendall—also a leader in Atlanta’s growing African-American comedy network—shows a performer at war with himself. Dissecting common themes in representations of the African-American experience, Mark makes us laugh and ask ourselves why we are laughing. From race cards to white flight, Aunt Jemima, and even Black Jesus—you will laugh until you cry and cry until you laugh. This subversive show is the reason Atlanta artists are defining African-American comedy today. The Magic Negro and Other Blackity Blackness was developed by the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab and is the first project from the Lab to receive a full production on the Hertz Stage.  

 

Originally created and produced at Dad's Garage.
