“By any joke necessary!” Frustrated with the constant negative images of black people in media, unchecked appropriation, and the overall lack of education in African American history, (I mean, how did we not know about the Hidden Figures women!?), Amanda Seales decided to use her humor, her Master’s degree in African American Studies from Columbia University, and her love of games and music, to create a game show that serves as a safe space for the Black voice, and celebrates the many contributions Black Americans have made to history, pop culture and more!

Created by comedian/actress/producer Amanda Seales (HBO Insecure), Smart Funny & Black brings your favorite funny folks to the “Hall of Flava” to compete in a head to head battle of wits that tests their knowledge of black history, black culture, and the black experience. 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,” the other, taking the crown, and being inducted into the “Illustrious League of Master Blacksperts.”
