The creation of Writer and Producer duo Aisha Jordan (Black Nerd Problems, 2Nerds and an Actor Podcast) and Rafael Jordan (Law & Order SVU, Godfather of Harlem, Director #HashtagTheShow. MFA – American Conservatory Theatre) the web series turns a critical and hilarious eye to current events and popular culture. From cultural appropriation halloween, modern tv ridiculousness, diet crazes and mumble rap realness. In a time when the social climate is disastrous, #HashtagTheShow reminds you to laugh – even when it hurts.
“A testament to a good sketch show is the ability for the art to imitate life’s absurdities and make it funny. #HashtagTheShow takes obscure/ popular absurdities of the black, POC, and American tropes under the knife to expose how raw but funny these elements can be.”
– Omar Holmon (Black Nerd Problems)
The series aims to highlight the nuances of black and POC life with wit, satire, and over the top exaggeration. Taking the viewer from the brainstorming sessions in the writers room to outlandish fully realized sketches.
The series features actors Lacretta known for her role as Suzi Teplitsky in the romantic comedy Second Act with Jennifer Lopez, and Tifah Johnson known for her role at Jess in Odd Mom Out. Also starring Lenny Thomas, known for his role as Dikahn in the BET dramatic series Ruthless.
