Ziwe: Season 1 Videos
Tv Season Info
Cast & Crew
Out of character, Ziwe can be strikingly earnest... On Ziwe, she's anything but-and late night's all the better for it.
On "Ziwe" the understanding is that that the conversation is less about the promoting visitor than elevating the host. Fumadoh constructs the show as both a true star-making platform and a spoof of the same.
The show creates a sense of closeness with Ziwe by letting us play, for thirty minutes at a time, inside her mind.
Ziwe, so much bigger and glossier than Fumudoh's Instagram show, is best when it recaptures the original videos' feeling of live, uneasy, intimate, and intense conversation - when it's riding on friction and interpersonal messiness.
It's when the show expands from one-on-ones that Ziwe, as a comedy project, flounders, with jokes relying too heavily on racism as a neon-lit punchline.
At first glance, this is a pop culture-fueled fever dream; it's Fumudoh's world and we're just living in it, and how dare we even suggest otherwise.
Fans of Ziwe Fumudoh will approach this show with her web series in mind, but seen strictly as a TV show it delivers with a brand of satire that has real intelligence.
As it turns out, viewers wondering if the comedian would soften up on guests once she made the transition to mainstream TV have nothing to worry about.
Audience Reviews for Ziwe: Season 1
Jun 07, 2021This is so embarrassingly bad. I feel like I was personally assaulted from watching an episode of this drivel.
May 30, 2021hilarious, I laughed the entire time
May 14, 2021Another reason never to listen to paid critics and always follow the audience rating instead. Not that funny. Even the skits as commercials were not funny. Any comedian could do this kind of show. Actually comedians have already tried this kind of show and they all have been canceled.
May 13, 2021The show effortlessly toes the line between witty, satirical comedy and thought-provoking commentary on race in America. It's editing style and direct addresses to the camera by host and creator Ziwe Fumudoh hints in the most enjoyable yet subtle way that some potentially racist sh*t is occurring, thus adding a much needed layer of cultural critique to the show without the need to even speak. I'm really excited for what's to come with this series!
