Comedy Central’s New Comedic Social Commentary Series Franchesca & Show Has ArrivedComedy Central TV News The Franchesca Show
Franchesca Ramsey has no idea what a coat check is.
Or, at least, that’s what she wants you to think in the premiere episode of her new Comedy Central digital series Franchesca & Show, where her solution to nightclub storage is to throw all of your belongings in the middle of the dancefloor and sing about it in a bonafide club hit.
The latest project from the Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore comedian and YouTube personality, Franchesca & Show finds Ramsey putting a unique spin on issues no one else is addressing—the aforementioned nightclub storage, the nuances of woke porn and what it means when someone has a black woman trapped inside of them—in the form of sharp sketch comedy.
The series, which also features Joel Kim Booster, Jaboukie Young-White and other comedians alongside Ramsey, debuts three times a week on Comedy Central’s YouTube channel.
It’s been a longtime coming for the Ramsey-Comedy Central joint project, where the network announced in late 2017 that the comedian would become the first black woman to host a pilot on Comedy Central. Though the untitled project didn’t phase out during the network’s 2017-2018 lineup of content development, it’s finally seeing the light of day in a digital series format.
Check out the first episode below.
