About Call & Response:

Each day, Baron and Mike invite their favorite creators — comedians, musicians, actors, visual artists, novelists, educators, philosophers, and more — to riff on current events, explore ways to utilize the momentum, and speak about their respective professions, work, and struggles.

Funny Or Die has partnered with Blavity Inc. to create this show with the intention of responding to our time through discourse and laughter.


Last year, Funny Or Die partnered with creators Baron Vaughn and Open Mike Eagle to produce the Comedy Central TV show The New Negroes. The show’s mission was to highlight, promote, and amplify talented Black voices — both new and established — in comedy, hip-hop, and culture.

Baron, Mike, and FOD believe this mission has always been important.

Baron Vaughn and Open Mike Eagle shared some clips from their show, The New Negroes, to give us a taste of what’s to come on Call & Response:
