Imagine if you will a world where alternative comedians are black and black comedians do alternative comedy. Have you fallen down a rabbit hole entering a world of mayhem and absurdity? No. You've just found yourself in 2016 where black people are actively redefining "black people." So sit back and enjoy while we welcome you…to the New Negroes.

"New Negro" is a term popularized during the Harlem Renaissance to imply an outspoken intellectual departure from long-standing racist ideology and institutions.

Hosted by Baron Vaughn and Open Mike Eagle, the show features a killer lineup hand-selected by Vaughn.

Picture This!

Created by Brandie Posey & Sam Varela, Picture This! is a wildly funny and innovative comedy show where well-known established comedians and popular up-and-coming comics are paired with some of the most talented animators and cartoonists working today. Each comic is paired with an animator and when the comedian begins their set, the artist draws their hilarious and unique interpretation of the set, which is projected behind the comic for the audience to see. The comics have no idea what the animators will be drawing, which heightens the experience for the audience and adds a completely new element that has not been done in live stand up before.
