Critic Reviews for Black Jesus: Season 1

All Critics (7) | 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.

The ridiculousness of the situations and mindstates of the characters is often used to illuminate some actual real world social issues.

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

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.
