Police brutality is no laughing matter, but the sketch show Who Shot Dayquan? manages to find the humor in one of the biggest social issues of our time. Comedy troupe the Edgeucation have not performed for almost a decade since their last sketch show, 2008's History of the Black Man. Here, the story revolves around fictional, 17-year-old Dayquan Mitchell, who's killed by an LAPD officer, though the audience is left to determine who's responsible: Dayquan or the police? Directed by Kamal Abdul-Jabbaar, cast members Kareem Grimes, Sarah Barton, Dion Lack, Kyle Erby, Vertina Love, Mike Wyman, Dave Lease and Dominique Purdy appear in 14 skits — even a musical number — that satirize not only the Black Lives Matter movement but politicians, welfare, gangs and deadbeat dads.
