Yvonne Orji To Premiere Her First Comedy Show “Momma I Made It” On HBO Comedy Special

Insecure actress Yvonne Orji is stepping into her standup bag with her upcoming HBO comedy special, Yvonne Orji: Momma, I Made It!.

On Saturday, June 6, the Nigerian-American star is set to debut her first hour-long program which “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.”
