DON’T make me break my foot off in yo’ ass

Screen Shot 2014-03-28 at 8.55.53 AM— It’s Friday! It’s Friday! It’s the weekend alas!
I woke up this morning with the inclination to laugh.

You remember MAD TV and comedian Artie Lange?
He was always ‘doing the most’ when he was doing his ‘thang!

This was long before our bi-racial President Obama,
when MAD TV saw the genius in a black child with a white mama.

Black mom’s go hard and their unintended comedy can be a gas,
but not as OUT THERE as MAD TV’s white moma, who’ll put her “foot in yo’ ass!”:

DON’T test Evelyn Lozada

Evelyn + Carl CrawfordNow, I don’t have any problems with anyone – I do not have any beef,
But throw shade on Evelyn Lozada and she’ll return with the heat.

It seems like Wendy Williams has been talking a little too much again,
in an effort to beef up ratings, she dug into her “so called friend.”

The friend was Evelyn Lozada — see, she just had a baby,
and Wendy implied that she did it for money – an accusation, quite shady.

You don’t throw shade on a friend. They’re too few of them in this world,
especially when the friend you dump on has sold your husband shoes for his side girl.

Yep! Evelyn took to Twitter and blasted Wendy (in kind) and with all do respect.
And I’m thinking Evelyn ain’t lying, because Wendy hasn’t responded yet!

BOOM! Wendy Williams: Your daytime show does not make you invincible, big or bad.
You’re lucky Evelyn put your marriage on blast and not her foot in yo’ ass:

Evelyn Blasts Wendy Wms


DON’T Disrespect Me & Mine

Screen Shot 2014-03-28 at 11.43.31 AMLadies will be ladies and talk, but men, are much more crass,
this next video found a dude selling drugs at work and the boss put his foot in his ass.

Literally. I’m serious. So if you have a weak stomach, please don’t press play,
It’s like a fight between the matador and the bull, but the boss didn’t feel “Ole’!


DON’T think Karma’s Sleeping

That's 33-year old Jeffrey Travis White giving the video taping motorist the finger before he CRASHED

That’s 33-year old Jeffrey Travis White giving the video taping motorist the finger before he CRASHED

My God, my God, what’s going on here?
It starts outs with a jeer and ends with a cheer.

God doesn’t like ugly and He will get with ya’.
You’re not above reproach, ol’ Karma’s ‘gone get’cha.

When road rage goes wrong and you’re filming the whole ‘thang,
Below — you’re unlimited in pressing rewind to see ‘a fool crash in the rain.

The moral of the story is, DON’T write a check that you cannot cash,
or the payee may find a viable reason to put his ‘foot up yo’ ass!’

It’s the weekend! It’s the weekend! It’s the weekend alas,
I’m Qui,
Peace and Blessings – It’s real talk, walk-the-walk and laugh.

Reel Talk

ReelTalk1SNL is short for Saturday Night Live and the abbreviation could easily dub as  Saturday Night Legend when you consider their longevity in the game (network television). Other sketch comedy shows have come and gone, but SNL remains the staple.

The Carol Burnett Show was on air for 11 years. Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In was on for 5 years, Mad TV for 14 years and In Living Color ran for a strong 4 years. However, SNL has been on for 38 years and still going.

Several years back I had a sketch comedy itch that I just could not scratch, (or find a reason to put one on), suddenly I hear that the annual family reunion was having a “talent show” category and well, if you’ve ever seen Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins, then you know just how eager I was to spring into action and show my stuff. With a camcorder, a zany sense of humor and willing on-the-spot cast, I was able to put together a comedy sketch show that Mad TV would have (especially) loved. I was inspired by the comedic renderings of Orlando Jones, Debra Wilson and Nicole Sullivan. They made up the original 1995 cast of Mad TV and they were awesome. Silliness could get no better on a Saturday night and my comedic vibe was shaped in the shadows. I also took home the family reunion talent show crown.

SNL and Mad TV were both on the air at the same time and life was fine. Today, sketch comedy show choices are slim, yet the demand is still growing. I turned the subject over to a couple of our teen producers to see what kind of shows they were into and I off the top one yelled out, “So Random!” So Random! was a music comedy sketch show that ran on Disney and wikipedia states that it was only on the air for 1 season, (2011-2012). 1 season? I’m impressed with it’s lingering popularity. Much like Nickelodeons All That show or The Amanda Bynes Show.

All That started broadcast in 1995 starring Kenan and Kel, among other zany-witted adolescents. All That ran for 10 seasons (from 1995-2005) and THAT – my friend, is success! Amanda Bynes gained stardom from her cast work in All That and shortly thereafter she got her own show.

I’m not sure if a comedy sketch show will be born out of my new ventures, but the possibility and encouragement is certainly on deck. #ConsiderationIsKey

SNL is a great cup of joe – though I am focused on brewing tea,
and a teen comedy release is a great spend of creativity.

I’m a few years past my teens, though I’m surrounded by them daily.
History shows a good straight-man resides in the mouths of the babies.

So I’ve given the comedic pen to a few teen friends accompanying me –
they’re goofy and open beyond reel focused and ready to sketch comedy.

Nothing is funnier than life, so we will pull from it and insert silly drama.
We’ll laugh at it all, the big and the small – Scandal, Glee and Obama.

I thank SNL for the fantastic design.
I also thank Carol Burnett for sharing her comedic mind.

I am grateful to the writers that give of themselves to produce side-splitting scripts.
Show’s don’t just happen, so get-to clappin’ – writing sketch comedy is quite the quip.

Excited – I am indeed. I’ve got my work cut out today,
I’m Qui
And Monday’s are great days to research, script and play!

It can’t be work – its so much fun!

Snoop’s Bad Girls

You know Snoop be ‘on it’ and I’m sure you’ve heard of his recent business play –
Snoop has changed his name-in-the-game & is now rapping to Reggae.

But his flair for style and a good time has not waivered one bit –
Snoop has put on an all girl COMEDY SHOW & his line up is a hit.

Tiffany Haddish is one of the baddest along with Cookie Hull, Luenell, April Macie and Monique Marvez

All of the woman were hilarious, in big breasted form and A-cups too.
Tho Tiffany Haddish had me crying, walking on the sides of her shoes.

Oooo! The things we do to get a mans attention
So Cookie Hull is well worth the mention:

She was cool, she was slim, her hair cut short – for no beauty turmoil
but she had my side hurting implying her kitti kat is wrapped in foil.

I could bullet-point quite a few laughs, for a more thorough griot flow,
but then the article would be too long – it’s quicker to just watch the show:

SNOOP DOGG Presents:

The BAD GIRLS of Comedy

Gotta Love that side splitting Comedy,
I’m Qui
Inviting you to roll on through, watch the vid and laugh with me.
Ooo Wee!


Bagging KEY & PEELE

They’re mixed, they’re dark and comically tall,
Key & Peele renewed their spill on Comedy Central for this fall.

They’re complexion is creamy like President O’s though complete with a mixed-hood style.
They dress up smart and talk the proper part but when necessary will get buck wild!

Everybody loves the mixed baby with the built-in tan, and curly hair so sweet.
But we also know they hone dual tones and are truly a frosted mini-wheat.

Today curly hair – Tomorrow it could be straight.
They can master on fries or head up the United States.

Two tones residing in one. Could it be the master race?
I don’t know – but it sho’ look so, per the dude in the White House space.

Key & Peele are two grown men, who have lived this duality all of their lives.
And hosting a show on Comedy Central is where the two [Mad TV alums] have arrived.

Surprise! The humor is easy, but does have a touch of reality’s race sting,
I’m Qui
Tuning in to the new seasons spin – Its KEY that I don’t miss a PEELED scene.


The AWKWARD Candidate

NewsWeek (in bold face) called him “A Twit”.
Gotta love the awkwardness of candidate Mitt.

With his shoulders pent back and butt cheeks clinched tight,
He’s running to lead the charge -in the dark with no foresight.

It’s seems painfully clear in the way he represents:
He’s not in it for the people – he just wants to be PRESIDENT.

He’s not for Womens Right and is down with changing voting rules.
There’s nothing more entertaining than watching a dunced fool.

I’m down with Womens Rights and I wish every American the right to vote.
I’m down with the course our country is on and I will voice it at the poll.

But without a little laughter every now and then, life would not be so sunny.
Though I must admit watching the stiff Mitt on a ‘gaff rip’ is laughable and funny.

Gotta Love Mitt. He’s the comic candidate.
He’s good on hurling chief insults and then defending that.

He knows nothing about women – thank God he didn’t birth a one.
And watching his wife try to re-write his life looks like painful fun.

Ann R. ain’t smiling no ‘mo and Mitt is on the vapor trail.
I’m Qui
and I think the debates with President O. will prove to be Romney’s hell.
