Straight Comedian Michael Che Hilariously Challenges Homophobic Logic

By Nick Delmacy | Posted Jan 18 2016 | 4 Comments  


Some of you may know 32-year-old stand up comedian Michael Che as as staff writer and anchor on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update news segments. In addition to pulling off great comedic timing, even when improvising lines with his co-host Colin Jost, Che looks very good in a suit (I can’t lie, he’s my type of dude. If Che has a gay brother, send him my way).


As many readers already know, I’ve been very critical of black comedians in the past when it came to Homophobia. From Kevin Hart to Tracy Morgan even to The Carmichael Show star Jerrod Carmichael, black comedians often show a disdain for gay people, especially when it comes to gay people in their family or circle of friends.

This 2013 stand up comedy bit from Michael Che on homophobia and gay marriage is hilariously spot on and refreshing. Instead of showing disgust for gays, he jokes about how incomprehensible it is for anyone to be homophobic in the first place (starts around the 3:40 mark).

Props to Michael Che for taking what shouldn’t be a controversial stance in the world of black stand-up comedy: Making funny “gay jokes” that both makes fun of and supports homosexuality.

    Nick if you can take a dikk you can take a gay joke… Being a gay black male is not fair some people going to like you some people are not. I've learn to have tough skin and not cry about everything. Matter of fact I laugh with them on homophobic jokes because its fun and often not reality. Its like your skin color you can't change it nor can you change ones perception of who you are. Don't take it personal straight people perception of gay people is often weak my perception is that we are strong and we (GAY PEOPLE) run things.Kudos for Che on his stance with homphobia and religion. That intro was from Tracey Morgan not me…It was a joke…LMAO
