This Week in Comedy: Zamunda is back. Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall are reprising their roles from the 80’s classic Coming To America in Coming 2 America. The sequel follows Murphy’s Prince Akeem who travels back to America to find the heir to his throne that he didn’t even know he had: A son. Joining Murphy and Hall is Leslie Jones, Tracy Morgan, Wesley Snipes, and the return of John Amos, Shari Headley, Louie Anderson, and James Earl Jones. Be on the lookout for our interview with Amos later this week.
Also this week, Netflix has a new film coming out with Moxie. Directed by and co-starring Amy Poehler, the film follows a shy 16 year-old girl who, when inspired by stories of her mom’s angsty past, starts an underground zine at school that in turn starts an entire movement. This marks Poehler’s second time in the director’s chair after 2018’s Wine Country. Moxie hits Netflix on Wednesday.
