100212_IssaRae Chubby lumpkins comedian/"SNL" star Kenan Thompson sparked outrage with his comments that Black women aren't ready (or funny enough) for "SNL" and, naturally, Twitter exploded. So, rather than feed into the close-minded negativity, we compiled a list of hilarious Black women who would easily shine on the very white and unfunny sketch show "SNL." Here are ten Black women who could star on SNL. Take a look.
issae Issa Rae Her sophisticated brand of funny built on awkward everyday situations doesn't always connect with everyone but we believe she's versatile enough to shine on "SNL."
pl_aishatyler_f Aisha Tyler Very few women are beautiful AND funny like the bubbly actress/comedienne known for her unforgettable roles on "Talk Soup" and "Archer."
jessica-williams-1024x576 Jessica Williams If you watch "The Daily Show," you've seen the sharp-witted comedienne delivering hilariously snarky news bits as the show's correspondent.
gabourey_SNL Gabby Sidibe She would always play sassy real-life cartoon characters like Madea but is easily one of the funniest actresses in Hollywood.
rhall8-564x317 Regina Hall The effortlessly funny actress is too versatile to fit into the "comedienne" box and had the funniest scenes in the "Scary Movie" series.
wanda Wanda Sykes Top 5 Black comedienne EVER? Many believe so.
ILC_BenitaBurtrell_src Kim Wayans Aside from her Oscar worthy-performance in "Pariah," she's been quiet since "In Living Color" but still over-the-top hilarious, we're sure.
e076ba92d7ab7fdbccd92a4af399615f Luenelle She's only situationally funny which is perfect for a late-night sketch show like "SNL."
k-michelle K. Michelle The Queen of Section 8 Soul is absolutely hilarious, especially when she's being her normal, everyday, Flamin Hot Cheeto-scented self on "Love & Hip-Hop."
