These Black Women Bring the Comic Relief to Reality TV

We turn to them for laughter week after week.

Funny Black women have recently found a new space to make us all laugh – reality TV. It seems like a weird place for a funny woman to try to make a name for herself, but it makes so much sense.
Let’s be clear, the drama on shows like Love & Hip Hop, The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Bad Girls Club is thick. Breaking the tension with some jokes and sassy shade is much needed comic relief. And we can rely on women like Tiffany Pollard (I Love New York), Nene Leakes and Sky from Black Ink Crew to deliver hilarious one-liner responses in confessions or after some drama has popped off. Here are some of the funniest women who make our favorite guilty pleasures that much more enjoyable.

VH1’s newest documentary is all about Black women in comedy. Check it out if you haven’t seen it already.
