Hey, everyone. We’re going to do something a little different for Black History Month. Usually, we pick a different comedian every day. This month, we’re going to pick one comedian each week and take a deeper dive into their work. This week we’re celebrating Amber Ruffin.
Amber has been one of the best writers and performers working in late-night comedy right now, and having a black and female voice has brought a vital component that has been sorely lacking from the format since its inception.
We missed yesterday (Sorry, we dropped the ball on this one) so you will be getting a double dose of Amber today, with a side of Tarik Davis. But first, we look at Amber’s opening monologue from her glass ceiling and stereotype-breaking hosting of the 2018 Writer’s Guild Awards.
And here is Amber’s recap of 2021 from The Amber Ruffin Show.
Check back tomorrow for more!
