We all know the hilarious Roy Wood Jr. from his skits at The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, but if you haven't seen his solo stand-up you're missing out. Fortunately we're here to introduce you to the wonderful work of Wood Jr. on stage.

The comedian recently did a set for Comedy Central's new stand-up docu-series series Dark Humor -- a project in cooperation with Color of Change that spotlights Black comedians. His aim in this clip is to educate us all about America, or specifically the "two different Americas" where we live now.

You will laugh out loud, however ruefully -- guaranteed.
