I can’t think of a better or more purely enjoyable way to celebrate Black History Month than watching Robert Townsend’s brilliant documentary Why We Laugh: Black Comedians on Black Comedy. It is showing on Showtime this month and will be available on DVD in April. It is hilarious and illuminating. And it is essential viewing because, as always, comedy is where the truth is told long before it is recognized by the journalists and politicians.
Trailer: "Risen," with Cliff Curtis as Jesus "Risen" is the story of the Resurrection, as told through the eyes of a non-believer played by "Shakespeare In Love's" Joseph Fiennes. It will be in theaters in January 2016.
