About 2 Dope Queens

WNYC Studios presents 2 Dope Queens featuring—you guessed it—two dope comedy queens. BFFs Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams (who earlier this year left The Daily Show) crack jokes about current events and perform some hilarious black (girl) magic. They’ve discussed DJ Khaled snapping the birth of his baby, the many breakups of Brad Pitt, white people attending The Color Purple, and the #SMH plight of the black woman in a white man’s world. Each week, they invite fellow female comedians to come in front of their live studio audience and give their two cents on the day’s hot-button topics, including guests like Aparna Nancherla and Naomi Ekperigin.
