About

This incredibly funny and groundbreaking show begins when the director asks the audience to suggest a popular film title and then the cast, right there on the spot, improvises the “black version” of that film complete with its improvised soundtrack, dance numbers, DVD extras, audition reels, and much more. The Black Version is a completely improvised show performing once a month at Largo at the Coronet.

Cast: The all African American cast of regulars includes show creator and namesake Jordan Black (Community), Nyima Funk (Wild N’ Out), Daniele Gaither (MadTV), Phil LaMarr (MadTV), Gary Anthony Williams (Boondocks), and Cedric Yarbrough (Reno 911), under the direction of Karen Maruyama (The Campaign).

Past guest performers include Keegan- Michael Key and Jordan Peele of Key & Peele (former original cast members) along with special guest performers such as Tiffany Hadish, Wayne Brady, Niecey Nash, Jerry Minor (SNL), and Angela V. Shelton (Frangela) among others who come and perform in the show from time to time.

The Black Version has performed to completely sold out houses at the Groundlings Theatre after opening in the summer of 2010. They’ve performed in numerous festivals including the San Francisco SketchFest, Outside Lands Music Festival, and the Louisville Improv Festival to name a few.
