Insecure actress Yvonne Orji is stepping into a new role with her new upcoming comedy special Yvonne Orji: Momma, I Made It! The premiere will be on Saturday, June 6, on HBO at 10 pm ET, where we’ll be able to see the comedian hop in her standup bag with her first hour-long program.
The HBO special features personal footage from her trip to Lagos, Nigeria earlier this year and takes place in front of a live studio audience in Washington, D.C.’s Howard Theatre.
