Season 2 of Hulu's "Woke" Premieres April 8th - Meet the Real-Life Cartoonist the Series is Based On
07 Apr 2022
One of the funniest and most highly regarded cartoonists in America, APB speaker Keith "Keef" Knight is the inspiration behind Hulu's hit streaming-series Woke, which he also co-created. For nearly three decades, this multi-award-winning artist has brought the funny back to the funny pages with a uniquely personal style that’s a cross between Calvin & Hobbes, MAD, and underground comix.
|"Cartoonist Keef Knight is now a popular activist on the rise, but he’s facing a world where ‘woke’ has become big business. Can Keef and his friends bring about real change, or is it just about the dollar$? And can Keef navigate this new world without destroying what he’s become?"
