What sets Problem Areas apart from many of its news/comedy counterparts is its ongoing look at a single issue: policing in America.

While the show - done without an audience - contains plenty of jokes, the mission and the research are serious...while the jokes don't disappear, the policing segment starts. It's a promising format.

Wyatt Cenac's Problem Areas gives a comic a platform to get serious about issues that concern him, but in essence should concern us all.

Most importantly, it's interested in answering questions that too often are ignored.

Host's relaxed vibe is a welcome alternative in late night.

Problem Areas isn't interested in telling you what to think, it's interested in making you think.

Problem Areas instead provokes sighs of disgust. The show is acutely aware of its smallness and impotence. Notably, much of its non-law-enforcement material concerns, directly or otherwise, impending environmental disasters.

[Wyatt] Cenac is a major talent, and there's no reason to think this program won't get stronger as it goes along.

Apr 17, 2018 | Full Review…

An almost solemn mission, but Problem Areas is full of the self-possessed humor Cenac's honed in his stand-up act and time in front of a Comedy Central green screen.
