Why ‘The Afterparty’ Star Sam Richardson Deserves an Emmy Nom

It’s easy to root for Sam Richardson. Onscreen, he radiates sweetness so effortlessly that he even managed to bring an impervious sunniness to the otherwise caustic, cynical Veep.

Amber Ruffin, Ziwe, Desus and Mero and the New Vanguard of Late Night

I knew Ziwe Fumudoh had truly made it when she was both parodied and saluted on the latest season of Succession, an au courant satire ostensibly about the ouroboros that is media itself.
