WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This hilarious one-man show by Dad's Garage's Mark Kendall — also a leader in Atlanta's growing African-American comedy network — shows a performer at war with himself. Dissecting common themes in representations of the African-American experience, Mark makes us laugh and ask ourselves why we are laughing. From race cards to white flight, Aunt Jemima, and even Black Jesus — you will laugh until you cry and cry until you laugh.

This subversive show is the reason Atlanta artists are defining African-American comedy today. The Magic Negro and Other Blackity Blackness was developed by the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab and is the first project from the Lab to receive a full production on the Hertz Stage.
