Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Tha God's Honest Truth With Charlamagne Tha God is a late-night comedy talk show that focuses heavily on race and race-related topics. There's lots of cursing ("f--k" is bleeped), and the use of the "N" word and other epithets is frequent. Some episodes feature violent images of historically racist acts, while comedy sketches and skits show weapons and disturbing imagery. Popular celebs like Chris Rock are sometimes referenced, and there are occasional references to drugs.
Is It Any Good?
The late-night variety talk show offers some straightforward commentary about issues and topics as they relate to race and racial awareness. Charlemagne McKelvey is unapologetically blunt as he shares his thoughts about relevant issues, while simultaneously using some irreverent humor to do it. But it's the comedy sketches, and the scenes of him going undercover to reveal some of the truths behind what he's saying, that are the most fun. Not everyone will be drawn to McKelvy's delivery style, and some may be uncomfortable with he points he is making. Nonetheless, Tha God's Honest Truth With Charlamagne Tha God presents arguments that are worth paying attention to.
