Yvonne Orji has landed her very first comedy special at HBO.
The network released the official trailer for the hour-long special titled, “Yvonne Orji: Momma, I Made It!”
Here’s the scoop:
Interspersed with vibrant, personal footage shot in Nigeria, Yvonne’s native home, during a milestone trip in early January, “Yvonne Orji: Momma, I Made It!” takes an intimate, hilarious look at what being Nigerian-American means to Yvonne – from her international haggling addiction and having her phone tapped by her parents as a kid, to the fine line between cursing people out and putting curses on them.
The special was filmed before a live audience at the Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C.
In a post on her Instagram page, the “Insecure” star wrote:
All I need is one mic! ?
And y’all about to get one hot-fiya hour of pure ridiculousness. I think it’s safe to say that we could all use some comic relief right about now, so I’ll see you guys on June 6th at 10pm only on @hbo & @hbomax
