At Quinta Brunson the winning streak continued with Saturday Night Live welcome the beginnings, shout the teachers and shade the caucacity of Friends.
featured in SNL was a dream come true for Quinta, who joked about taking the scenic route to the stage in her monologue.
“Actually, I wanted to be on SNL at the time, but the audition process seemed a bit lengthy. Instead, I just created my own TV show, made sure it got really popular, won a bunch of Emmys, and then got asked to host,” a- she joked. “So much easier!”
The Philly native explained how unique Elementary Abbot is like a network television show. She threw some shade, comparing her hit comedy to the mostly white series Friends.
“It’s a network sitcom like Friends. Except that instead of talking about a group of friends, it’s a group of teachers. Instead of New York, it’s Philadelphia. And instead of not having black people does it! she said to a cheering crowd.
The real ones know there wouldn’t be Friends without To live aloneanyway.
The TV titan also dedicated his monologue to teachers like his mother, who are overworked and underpaid. Quinta aired a clip from her outing with Barack Obama, praising her mother’s service as “the most important job.”
She concluded with a final plea to show all teachers the love we have for Primary Abbott.
“Remember how important teachers are. Recognize the work they do every day. And for the love of God, pay them what they deserve,” she said.
