Where do I even begin? There are so many things I love about this: ?uestlove with a sniffer of brandy and his trademark afro pick. The RZA’s emphatic endorsement of Girl Power. The idea that Amy Poehler only got the role of Leslie Knope after Ghostface Killah turned it down. AZIZ MOTHERFUCKIN’ ANSARI, who is currently the funniest person on the planet (have you seen the cover of his new comedy album?).
The background behind this video is simple: Questlove tweeted that Parks and Recreation is the Wu-Tang of comedy, comparing the strong ensemble cast of P&R to the fact that all 9-10 members of the Wu are exceptional emcees in thier own right.
Which is actually an accurate parallel to draw. Parks and Recreation is the best comedy on television. Yes, it’s that good. My particular fondness for it stems from the fact that it decidedly does NOT employ the “easy laugh” tactic. You know, where the jokes are so dumbed down and simplistic that you see them coming long before the dialogue begins. And Questo is right – every single person in the cast is spot-on.
And we all know that Wu-Tang brings the muthafuckin’ ruckus.
