 THE MAGIC NEGRO AND OTHER BLACKNESS

Unexpected ProductionsSpecial Engagement two nights only! Have you ever pondered the idea that Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham might be racially charged? And just whose uncle IS Uncle Ben? Well, maybe it’s time to take a closer look. This hilarious one-man show by Mark Kendall 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.

Using comedic sketches, improv, and character pieces, this one-man show from the mind of Atlanta’s Dad’s Garage’s own Mark Kendall examines the representation of black males in the media.
 
Mark first got into comedy while studying film at Northwestern University. He had a chance to work at Comedy Central through the Chris Rock Summer School Program for up and coming comedy writers of color. During his time at Comedy Central, he got to pitch jokes to the writing staffs of "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report." Mark performs comedy in Atlanta at Dad's Garage Theatre Company and Highwire Comedy. He also teaches improv and sketch writing. He is currently touring with his one-man show "The Magic Negro and Other Blackness" a sketch show that examines the depiction of black men in the media. For his work with the show, he was recently awarded "Best Professional Funny Man" by Creative Loafing Atlanta.
