Black British Comedy

We have been accustomed to a steady stream of Black American comedians/comedic shows, to keep us entertained, whilst Its been 20+ years since hit shows like Desmond's or The Real McCoy were across our screens.
But with the change of time, demographic & technology; where does the Black British Comedy scene stand?

In the days on Youtube & Netflix, do we still need traditional TV channels to "co-sign"?
Are the likes of Famalam, Dane Baptiste, Mo the Comedian and Gina Yashere the answer?
