Critic Reviews for Black Jesus: Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (5)

Aaron McGruder's new live-action comedy for Adult Swim, Black Jesus, is a modern-day religious farce bathed in the best kind of sin.

August 8, 2014 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Irreverent, edgy comedy puts the Savior in the inner city.

August 19, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

I'm not saying it's particularly deep, and it is filled with language that cannot be reproduced in this newspaper, but it's good-natured and, compared with a lot of what's on television, the comedy is gentle and hopeful.

It's pretty funny if you give it some time.

There's a sweetness underneath its scabrous, sacrilegious exterior, as Johnson's Jesus puts his own spin on all the greatest hits while endeavoring to establish a community garden.

It's often funny, but it's not infallible.
