“Sometimes I say horrible shit. I don’t even care,” Michael Che admitted in one stand-up set, and that’s mainly what gives his material its punch. While he acts as co-anchor on Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” and also writes for the show, Che confesses that he doesn’t follow politics. Before the 2016 election, he thought Hillary would win, because white women always get what they want. Oof. Che says Caucasian ladies usurped the toughest areas of Brooklyn, they rescue pit bulls for fun, and, he surmised, they even killed Biggie. Che’s thoughts on race and homophobia are similarly skewed and hilarious—as is his telling of the world’s oldest sexting joke.
