Michael Che comedy special: Netflix releases trailer

Posted on

As a co-anchor on Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update, Michael Che is used to poking fun at anything and everything. But with more time for his thoughts and no need for a filter, Che takes his act to a new level for his Netflix comedy special, Michael Che Matters, out Nov. 25.

“There’s a lot of tension in this country that needs to be addressed,” Che tells an enthusiastic audience in the trailer, which dropped Monday. “Let’s do it right now. Blacks and cops aren’t getting along. I don’t know if you’ve seen the news in the past 400 years. My brother’s a cop, actually. I only see him at Thanksgiving, and even then, I’m like, ‘I’m reaching for the potatoes!'”

Che goes on to riff on everything from guns and drugs to Hitler in the special, which was filmed at the Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse in Brooklyn. He also doesn’t shy away from the Black Lives Matter movement.

“We can’t even agree on Black Lives Matter,” says the former Daily Show correspondent. “‘All Lives Matter’? That would be like if your wife came up to you and was like, ‘Do you love me?’ And you were like, ‘Baby, I love everybody, what are you talking about?'”

Watch the trailer below.
