THE CAST IN SIX DEGREES OF: CAZWELL
Bobby Moynihan was in an episode of Saturday Night Live with Jesse Eisenberg, who was in The Emperor’s Club with Jovette Elise, who was in M.A.R.R.A. with Cazwell.
Michael Peña was in Boogie Boy with Karen Shepherd, who was in M.A.R.R.A. with Cazwell.
Hannibal Burress was in Neighbors with Elsi Eng, who was in In the Cage with Tsubee U, who was in M.A.R.R.A. with Cazwell.
Nick Swardson was in an episode of Reno 911! with Sean Young, who was in M.A.R.R.A. with Cazwell.

Danny McBride was in 30 Minutes or Less with Jesse Eisenberg, who was in The Emperor’s Club with Jovette Elise, who was in M.A.R.R.A. with Cazwell.
Chozen is a gay white rapper, fresh out of the joint, looking for redemption and to take his place at the top of the rap game.
The animation is top-notch, and a few of Chozen’s songs are funny.
Just about everything else.
When I first read about this show, I was excited. It is from the producers of Archer, so my hopes were high. Then I watched the first episode, and I wished I was high because then it might have been funny. You know how
most some skits on SNL run about 5 minutes longer than they should? This show is very that. The fact that Bobby Moynihan is in most of those skits does not help this show at all. Imagine that Jonah Hill-I’m 9 years old sketch running for 22 fucking minutes… with a wigger accent. It will work your last fucking nerve.
The show has had a few funny moments. One of my faves: Chozen hooks up with a hot frat guy. The fratty shows up later in the episode with that clingy look in his eyes and Chozen tells him something like, “If you’re gettin’ feelings, you need to pump your brakes!” I chuckled. It reminded me of the time I famously (in my mind) told Shawna (make ’em say ugh! UGH! Shaw-na-na-na!) and her boyfriend at the time, “If you two are going to talk about feelings, you need to take that shit outside.” We were in her apartment. And yes, I called the cartoon frat guy hot. There are hot cartoon characters. Trent from Daria, anyone?
Chozen is animated flop sweat garbage.
THE GRADE: F (and one Alleycat-style “Really?!”)
