In his first Netflix stand-up special, 2016's Michael Che Matters, Michael Che riffed on everything from lesbian porn to gun control to racism. "Anytime a white guy asks me if he can say the 'n' word, it feels like an alcoholic asking me if he can have a sip of my drink," he said. He also joked that though then-candidate Donald Trump would make a lousy president, he's still an amusing guy. "We all have that shitty, overly confident, quasi-racist friend, and we keep him around because he's funny as fuck." Che has been performing stand-up for almost a decade and briefly worked as a correspondent on The Daily Show, but fans know him best as co-host of Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" with Colin Jost. The two are co-hosting the upcoming Emmys, which will be one of the biggest comedy events of the year. Fellow comedian Cipha Sounds opens this show.
