Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) September 01, 2016
Tickles.TV announces its official launch. The website creates and curates satirical, comedic and irreverent content intended to spark critical conversations about race, culture and identity in America. Emmy nominated writer, producer and performer HaJ, who is the creator and founder, is a fan of popular sketch comedy shows such as Key & Peele, The Chappelle Show and In Living Color and looks to continue their tradition of thought-provoking humor particularly through the lens of women of color.
HaJ says, “Comedy is such a great way to have uncomfortable conversations, and uncomfortable conversations are necessary for social progress.”
Tickles.TV is the premiere destination comedy, culture and conversation for Urban Chameleons, a group of millennials that push the boundaries of traditional demographics.
As HaJ describes these multifaceted millennials: “One who will order a soy chai latte to digest the fried chicken and sushi she just ate while another will flip between watching the rachetness of Love & Hip Hop to staying socially conscious with #blacklivesmatter conversations. Still another shops at Gucci and the Dollar Store as he listens to a playlist featuring Adele and Jay Z.”
The website’s newest original web comedy series, Angry Black Woman, created by HaJ and Daheli Hall (of MADtv), spoofs and dissects the derogatory term while ironically giving light as to why black women have every right to be angry.
Tickles.TV is also developing a new version of The Urban Chameleons with Funnel Cake Flowers, an original multimedia, interactive live production that performed Off-Broadway last summer directed by trailblazing filmmaker, Ayoka Chenzira. The original show stars Funnel Cake Flowers, the self-proclaimed urban chameleon news reporter, and features interviews with people who code-switch from white corporate America to the kinky-hair handling, curry eating, hip gyrating, I-N-G droppin’ America - 'cause it's complicated in these streets. The show highlights different cultural dilemmas, such as the fear of wearing natural hair in corporate America to dealing with the use of the N-word among white friends. The next show will be live streamed at SCADshow 14th Street Theatre, Atlanta, Georgia Thursday, November 3rd. Sign up for the newsletter to be notified on all things tickles.
