Yvonne Orji: Momma, I Made It!

Available on iTunes, Prime Video, HBO Max
Comedian and actress Yvonne Orji (HBO's "Insecure") takes the stage in this special taped in front of a live audience at the Howard Theatre, just blocks away from Howard University Hospital, where Yvonne's mom practiced as a nurse for 27 years. Interspersed with vibrant, personal footage shot in Nigeria – Yvonne's native home – during a milestone trip in early January, the show takes an intimate, hilarious look at what being Nigerian-American means to Yvonne – from her international haggling addiction; to having her phone tapped by her parents as a kid; to the fine line between cursing people out and putting curses on them.
