Daniel Kaluuya is Straight Up Hilarious in Biting ‘Saturday Night Live’ Monologue / WATCH

*Showing how talented he is, Daniel Kaluuya did his thing last night on “Saturday Night Live.” If ya missed it, the British born actor and star of “Judas and the Black Messiah,” showed off his stand-up skills as he delivered a biting and hilarious monologue.

“I know you’re hearing my accent and thinking, ‘Oh, no, he’s not Black! He’s British!’ I’m here to reassure that I am Black,” Kaluuya said with a laugh. “I’m black, and I’m British. Basically, I’m what the royal family was worried the baby would look like.”

The joke, which got big laughs, was in reference to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s high-profile interview with Oprah in which they alleged that an unnamed palace official questioned them, while she was pregnant, about supposed concerns over their baby’s skin tone.

“People ask me, ‘What’s worse? British racism or American racism?’ Let me put it this way. British racism is so bad, white people left,” Kaluuya shared. “They only wanted to be free. Free to create their own kinds of racism. That’s why they invented Australia. South Africa. And Boston.”

Also in the monologue, Kaluuya didn’t spare his family, who came from Uganda, and got some love from some family members who came out to support him in the audience.

“I come from a big Ugandan family. It’s no joke. My mom’s one of 22 kids, my dad is one of 49,” he shared, laughing. “They say black don’t crack, but condoms do!”

Looking back at his career in show business, Kaluuya revealed that he actually has a connection of sorts to the current SNL cast.

“When I was 9 years old I wrote a play that was performed with real actors and everything. This is a true story. That place was based on Kenan and Kel, and that play led me down a path to this stage tonight, with Kenan backstage right now,” he explained. “So, I just want to take this moment in front of Kenan and the whole world to say, ‘Thank you, mom. Thank you, God. And thank you, Kel.'”
