Chicago improv group 3Peat spoofs horror tropes about black characters in Comedy Central video

A group of friends, all black, run through the woods one night and barricade themselves inside an empty house. “We’re being chased by a psycho killer!” one of them says. “I told y’all, black people have no business camping,” another says. “This is black karma!”

Skewering both horror movie tropes and racial stereotypes, “The Blackening” is a one-off video collaboration from Comedy Central and the Chicago-based improv group 3Peat and it is hilarious, both silly and smart and nothing short of a calling card for the collective talents herein.
