Best African American Comedy Movies

New and old, this list features some of the best known black comedy movies Hollywood has produced.

Best 80s Comedy

Raunchier, goofier, and with a lot more puns than what you get today, the 80s were a game-changing decade for the comedy genre. Where would be without 'Airplane!', 'Ghostbusters', and 'Spinal Tap?'. In some sort of joyless dystopia we don't even want to imagine.

'Eddie & Co.': Classic African-American Comedy

The best of the best African-American comedy flicks from yesteryear, featuring buddy-cop classic '48 Hrs.', prince & pauper tale 'Trading Places', and groundbreaking romantic comedy 'Guess Who's Coming to Dinner'. If you think black comedy starts at 'Friday', you're dead wrong!

Eddie Murphy Comedies

Oh how the mighty have fallen - if you love Eddie Murphy do yourself a favor and only watch movies of his from before 2000. In fact, just stick to the 80s. You can't go wrong with '48 Hrs.', 'Trading Places', and 'Beverly Hills Cop'.

'Trading Places & Races': 80s Class Comedy

Never again would wealth disparity play such a prominent role in Hollywood's collective imagination as during the 1980s. Makes sense; Wall Street was raking it in, while the rest of America felt only the faintest trickling of downs.

'Movies Like Say Anything': Best 80s RomComs

As with nachos so with RomComs - the more cheese the better! That's why for our money the 80s produced the best romantic comedies ever. Includes Cusack's 'Say Anything', which inspired generations of young men to wake up neighborhoods with late-night boombox serenades.
