New Sketch Wednesday! Starring The Daily Show’s Jessica Williams & Phoebe Robinson [VIDEO]

#TeamBlaria, sorry for being MIA lately, I’ve been away freelancing and running my monthly stand up show called Blaria LIVE! at UCB East with Jessica Williams, which sold out again last night, so thank you very much for that! Anyhoo, she and I are now doing monthly videos together and we debuted our first one last night at LIVE! and now, I’m sharing it with you.

As most of you know, there is a ridiculous show on Lifetime called Girlfriend Intervention, in which the tag line is, “Inside every white woman is a strong black woman.” So four sassy, loud, and obnoxious black women go around, “magical negro’ing” their way into the lives of plain Jane white women.

The cast of Girlfriend Intervention will no doubt regret the decision to star in this hella ignorant show.

That’s right, oy to all the motherfuckin’ vey on that one. Still, Jess and I wanted to test out this show’s theories and help the white women of NYC. Here are our results. Enjoy!:

Thanks so much for watching. Please share with everyone you know! Love you. Mean it!

According to Serial Optimist, NYC-based stand up-comedian and writer Phoebe Robinson “is brilliant and able to critique some really complex concepts in a sentence or two. Bask in it, people.” Which is precisely what The Huffington Post is trying to get people to do when it listed her as one of “18 Funny Women You Should Be Following On Twitter,” but with the way things are going, it seems the place to follow her is on TV. Phoebe is a writer for MTV’s Girl Code and most recently co-hosted an episode of the new series Raising McCain, wrote on the VH1 pilot Chateau Buteau, appeared on FX’s Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell and Comedy Central’s Broad City, was a panelist on VH1’s Big Morning Buzz, and has been featured on several talking head shows for Pivot TV, VH-1, and the TV Guide Channel such as 100 Shows to See Before You Die, 25 Biggest Reality Star Blunders, and 40 Greatest Hip Hop Songs. When not on television, Phoebe’s a writer for Glamour.com and contributes to The New York Times. Her blog Blaria (aka Black Daria) was picked up by The Huffington Post and has been featured on their website. She has also been published in Time Out NY, The NY Post, and The Smoking Jacket. Phoebe has also made her mark in the world of stand up. She was a finalist in NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity competition and was a part of their 2011-2012 USA college tour. Since the tour, she has performed in the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the Eugene Mirman Festival, the New York Underground Comedy Festival, the All Jane No Dick Festival, SF Sketchfest, the Women in Comedy Festival, the Brooklyn Comedy Festival, and the New York Comedy Festival. Phoebe has also branched out into radio as she has been on Sirius XM’s Raw Dog Comedy, Canada’s CBC Radio, and bitch magazine’s podcast.
