Bashir Salahuddin and Diallo Riddle Explain Why ‘South Side’ Is So Revolutionary

To call South Side, the comedy set on the South Side of Chicago, funny is a serious understatement. Back for a second season, this time on HBO Max after a first season on Comedy Central, South Side is nothing short of painfully, gut-busting hysterical — case in point, the first episode of season two when the bumbling Officer Goodnight, played by co-creator and co-executive producer Bashir Salahuddin, finds himself locked in the home of an urban furrier who captures city critters and turns them into fur coats. It’s a clever, unbelievably silly play on the “trap house” (slang for “drug spot”), and the story line works on a bunch of levels beyond the double entendre, highlighting the ingenuity of inner-city entrepreneurs and police ineptitude too.
