    I Just Watched The Trailer For "A Black Lady Sketch Show," And I'm 100% Sure TV Will Never Be The Same

    "Whew the amount of talent in this trailer is outstanding and the music? This really is about to be one of the best shows ever."

    Have you seen the new trailer for HBO's upcoming series A Black Lady Sketch Show? Cuz I have and I can't stop watching it!!!

    Not only do we get snippets of the core cast members Robin Thede, Ashley Nicole Black, Gabrielle Dennis, and BuzzFeed alum (!!!) Quinta Brunson doing what they do best...

    ...But there's also a TON of comedy legend cameos and celeb guest appearances.

    I mean, the trailer was only one minute and 50 seconds long, but people are already hype as hell for the Aug. 2 premiere.

    @BlackLadySketch @HBO This almost has TOO MUCH power, like... It can't be healthy to love something as much as I already love this show??? Oh well! Time to dedicate my life to it ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ

    @BlackLadySketch @HBO Whew the amount of talent in this trailer is outstanding and the music? This really is about to be one of the best shows ever

    @BlackLadySketch @HBO I๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพcan๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพnot๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพwait๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ I wanna get all my homegirls together and just love on this show!

    @BlackLadySketch @HBO We really arenโ€™t ready ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

    FYI, A Black Lady Sketch Show is the first-ever sketch comedy series created by, written by, and starring black women...

    This is the creator, writers, director, and cast of HBOโ€™s A Black Lady Sketch Show. This showโ€™s gonna be as black and joyful as we are in this video. #ablss

    Robin Thede (The Rundown with Robin Thede, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore) created the series and serves as executive producer, along with Insecure star Issa Rae. "I created #ablss to amplify just some of the many incredible black ladies in comedy and am so proud of it!!" Robin tweeted. "ALSO IT'S FUNNY AF."

    ...so the magnitude of this moment in comedy and TV history is MAJOR!!!

    @BlackLadySketch @HBO Iโ€™m there for this. Black Women are very underrated and not well respected in the comedy world. Iโ€™m really glad for these young black Queens doing there thing. I canโ€™t wait to see this. Much respect to yโ€™all ladies ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ˜โœŠ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

    In summary, A Black Lady Sketch Show looks fricking hilarious and I'm SKRESSED that I gotta wait until August 2 to watch it. I guess I'll just watch Quinta video's iconic "He Got Money" series until then.
