This chapter provides a comparative analysis of two popular television shows, Chappelle’s Show and The Ity and Fancy Cat Show (a popular Jamaican sketch comedy show). Both programs explore how racism is indebted to long-standing institutional paradigms. However, the latter show ultimately includes a more communal identity for its audience as an antidote to institutional racism.
