New sketch comedy shows are few and far between. Apart from popular ones such as  “Saturday Night Live,” you would be hard-pressed to name 10 current series of that genre, which is a shame, because there are plenty that are not only hilarious, but offer some poignant social commentary. Kind of like “Astronomy Club: The Sketch Show,” a Netflix series that was tragically cancelled, or “A Black Lady Sketch Show,” an HBO original produced by none other than Issa Rae. Which is your favorite?

In true ironic form, “Astronomy Club: The Sketch Show” doesn’t really have anything to do with astronomy apart from focusing on a fictional set of characters that are a part of said club, all living with each other in the Astronomy Clubhouse. It’s absurd and quirky, but genuine to its core.

Unfortunately, “Astronomy Club” wasn’t renewed, much to the despair of diehard fans. But in a world of social media in which shows long dead suddenly rise from the ashes thanks to fan power, who knows what could happen? Looking at you, Netflix…

Issa Rae is a talented soul we’re all familiar with thanks to her hit HBO series, “Insecure.” Needless to say, we trust her taste in producing shows, especially if those shows are created and led by Robin Thede, who happens the first Black woman to be a head writer for a late-night talk show. Thus, “A Black Lady Sketch Show” was born.

The series’ vignettes are set in absurd situations ranging from apocalyptic parties to awkward marriage proposals. Some of our favorite celebs make cameos, such as Angela Bassett and Tia Mowry, so really, how can this not be a good show?
