‘Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl’ Star Issa Rae on CNN
The best show to hit the web eight months ago, “The MISdaventures of Awkward Black Girl” is climbing to the top quickly.
Its success is all in the numbers. The series has gotten tens of thousands of hits on youtube and episode 9 which dropped only a week ago, already has over 90,000 hits.
Well you ask, what is Awkward Black Girl?
The series is downright hilarious. The dry humor and storyline will keep you thoroughly entertained and asking for more episodes like I am.
The show’s success is not only in numbers though. The producer, director and star of the series, Issa Rae, was interviewed on CNN last week! How could I have missed this when it happened?!
In regard to creating the series, Issa Rae says, “I didn’t see myself represented on screen, in television or film, and I love these shows like ‘Parks and Recreation,’ ’30 Rock,’ just because they have this awkward humor….’Curb Your Enthusiasm,’ ‘Seinfeld,’ these shows represent my type of humor and I thought it’d be funny to have a series based on this African-American girl who goes through everyday awkward situations.”
Check out her interview on CNN below, then watch every episode and join the thousands of people who love the show and are proud to admit I’M AWKWARD!
