* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''
** Has an early parody of the trope, in which Homer watches a typical stand-up special featuring a black comic in front of a brick wall delivering trite impressions of how black and white people drive. Homer bursts into hearty laughter, shouting, "It's true! We're so lame!"

* Parodied on ''Series/LastWeekTonightWithJohnOliver'', in his segment on [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Pz3syET3DY the War on Drugs]].
-->'''John Oliver''': That reminds me of a joke. Black people who commit drug offences, ''[makes hand gesture as though he's in handucffs]'', they go to jail like this, whereas white people don't go to jail at all.

* Johnny Ryan did a parody of this trope with {{Magneto}} doing a stand-up routine about "mutants do it like this". Ending with him getting carried away and blowing up the Earth.

* The comedy team of "Tim and Tom" (Tim Reid, later famous as Venus Flytrap on ''WKRPInCincinnati'', and Tom Dreesen, still a working standup) not only used this trope, but ''embodied'' it. Performing in the late '60s and early '70s, they were the first -- and last -- "interracial comedy team" in America. Reid and Dreesen told the story of their brief career as "Tim and Tom" in a 2008 book, ''Tim and Tom: An American Comedy in Black and White''.

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' (from "Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story"): Gandhi is a stand-up comic, and says, "...and the black people are always like 'Hey, bitch!' and the Indian people, we do not call our women in such a way." In some syndicated airings, "black people" is Bowdlerised}} to "Americans".

Historically, a lot of black comedians based routines on this format, which was shocking, transgressive and deeply satisfying for black audiences when they first heard it in the late '70s and early '80s. As part of the "blaxploitation" movement where black people started reclaiming and accepting certain black stereotypes as positive rather than negative portrayals of black culture, especially of black masculinity, male black stand-up comics [[{{Reconstruction}} started to turn white stereotypes of blacks being "uncivilized" and "dangerous" on their head]], recreating the stereotype as white men being over-civilized, timid and cowardly while black men were [[NobleSavage powerful, independent and strong]]. Comedians such as Creator/RichardPryor and Steve Harvey were early pioneers of the trope, and later comedians followed suit.

* Recap/CommunityS3E15OriginsOfVampireMythology had a ''very'' odd version of this in TheTag: Abed does an [[UpToEleven extremely]] [[PeripheryDemographic specific]] StandUpComedy bit about differences in the way he and [[BlackBestFriend Troy]] brush their teeth.

teeth. Naturally, only he and Troy get it.
** Another odd variant is used in "App Development and Condiments". Jeff's comedy routine is all about how "Twos", "Threes", and "Fours" act differently from each other.

* Creator/MargaretCho does a variation which could be accurately described as "Gay Dude, Straight Dude". Bonus points in that she is herself bisexual.
