I mentioned before that from time to time, I catch episodes of Guys With Kids. Jimmy Fallon is its creator and while not perfect, it’s fairly funny sometimes. Tempest Bledsoe (she kinda always is “Vanessa” to me) is a regular on the show and in recent episodes, Keshia Knight Pulliam (you can always see “Rudy” in her face) has been playing the sister of Bledsoe’s character, “Marny!” This could not be more awesome.
I do have to admit that I hate that Pulliam’s character “Bridget” is a mooching sister because she already played this type of character in the film Beauty Shop. I wanted something else for her. I do love seeing them on screen together, however. There is a natural chemistry there and it makes sense since they have YEARS of working together and growing up together on The Cosby Show.
The White characters on the show are interesting as well, especially “Nick” who is hilarious. I also like Anthony Anderson’s character “Gary,” who tends to drive “Marny” up a wall but they have a lot of love as well. I rarely watch comedy so seeing one with funny and interesting Black characters is really great and a break from my love of primetime network dramas.
