On Thursday June 18, we are proud to share Dad’s Garage Theatre Company’s stream of Mark Mendall’s The Magic Negro. This show was recorded at Improvaganza 2016, and we are delighted to share it with our audiences once again. During this one night only event, Dad’s Garage will be raising funds for Black Lives Matters. This show will also be available for Video on Demand afterwards for a charge of $5 and all proceeds go to Black Lives Matter.
Have you ever pondered the idea that Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham might be racially charged? And just whose uncle IS Uncle Ben?
Well, maybe it’s time to take a closer look – a look narrated by none other than the iconic Mark Kendall! Using comedic sketches, improv, and character pieces, this one-man show examines the representation of black males in the media. From prison to white flight, Aunt Jemima, and even Black Jesus – we’ll explore some of the ways these images influence our views on race in everyday life. Word to your mother… but not the n-word.
The stream has concluded. You can pay $5 to watch the recording here:
