New Desi Comedy on CBS

CBS has a new Borat style comedy show based on an immigrant Desi family – *A docu-comedy about a family from Kashmir and the humorous interactions they have with unsuspecting Americans.*

Watch the pilot on CBS’s Innertube. There are 4 parts.

Your thoughts?

I didn’t care for it much at first… but upon watching it again I actually think it’s pretty funny.

BUT WHERE ARE THE BROWN PEOPLE IN THE WRITING AND PRODUCING CREDITS? HUH? HUH? HUH?

  1. I’m actually so upset, I don’t even know where to begin. At the same time, I feel really vindicated about my anti-Borat/Ali G bias.

  3. I definitely laughed, but it pales in comparison to Borat. The lack of brown people behind the scenes annoys me though
