* ''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''.
