After a night of fun-as-hell games, flanked by a live band, and a turnt up audience, each show ends with one guest literally taking the “L,” and the other taking the crown, being inducted into the “Illustrious League of Master Blacksperts.” ‘Smart, Funny & Black’ strengthens unity by providing a safe space to be your whole Black self and link with the people through the shared culture that binds US. Seales is a comedian and creative visionary with a Masters in African American studies fromColumbia University.
You know her as “Tiffany DuBois” of HBO’s Insecure and her HBO stand up special I Be Knowin. She is a former co-host on daytime talk show, The Real, host of NBCs Bring the Funny, and hosted the groundbreaking 2020 BET Awards. The creator/host of the hit live, and now virtual, music/comedy game show, Smart Funny & Black, she speaks truth to change via her wildly popular instagram, weekly podcast, Small Doses, and book by the same name. Always an advocate for Black voices, she founded Smart Funny & Black Productions to produce and create art as edu-tainment across the media landscape by any joke necessary. With an uncanny knack for taking serious topics (racism, rape culture, sexism, police brutality, etc.) and with humor, making them relatable and interesting, she combines intellectual wit, silliness, and a pop culture obsession to create her unique style of smart funny content for the stage and screens. — By attending an event at Kings Theatre, all patrons are acknowledging their consent to, and agree to abide by, the safety precautions that have been adopted.
