Hit ‘Em on the Blackside

Show Information

Hit ‘Em on the Blackside is a Congo Square’s hot new online series, featuring Chicago’s premiere and award-winning African American acting ensemble in bi-weekly, sketch comedy webisodes. The series is directed by Anthony Irons, who helmed the company’s successful production of Douglas Turner Ward’s satirical fantasy Day of Absence, which closed performances early due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Director Anthony Irons promises “… gut punching, thought-provoking, laugh out loud satire, with some deep, artistic kinda stuff thrown in for good measure.” Congo Square is excited to team up with filmmaker Malcom Banks (Jitney- 2018) to bring this hot, new, virtual experience to you. Get ready.

Hit ‘Em on the Blackside launches October 9 on via Congo Square’s Instagram and Facebook Pages. The webisodes will be compiled into a full show for free viewing here on our website. Part one of the show airs December. Then from March-June 2021 the new bi-weekly webisodes will resume, with a part two of the show posted in June.
