'Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens' Episode 2 Preview: Nora is all set for a 'sexy' night at home
All she wants to do is get some waxing done and surf the internet, but doesn't look like her granny will let that happen
Awkwafina is back with her comic dose for the week. The second episode of her show 'Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens' titled 'Atlantic City' will air on January 29. Atlantic City usually means some crazy and wacky times lie ahead, and this one promises the same especially since her grandmother is with her.
In the latest promo of the episode, Awkwafina is just settling down for a wild 'sexy' night of her own, which includes her nightrobe, some waxing equipment and, well, a vibrator. Like any millennial, she just wants to spend time on the internet, but hell her grandmother is going to let that happen. So what happens to Awkwafina in Atlantic City? The episode will air on Comedy Central at 10.30 pm on January 29.
'Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens' is loosely based on the life of the actress-singer (whose real name is Nora Lum), and her pre-stardom days.
She is a 27-year-old child in an adult's body, trying to navigate the mess that accompanies growing up. The show isn't too far from Nora's real life, though obviously some of the zany schemes are dramatized for effect. Awkwafina confirmed to USA Today that events in the show mirrored her own life quite closely. "The biggest change was how much more grounded in reality and my experiences the show became," she said. "I really did focus groups for money; I really did work in a shady real estate agency. I felt that the best way to tell a story without making it seem like it’s trying too hard, especially with comedy, was to just tell it the way it happened," she added.
The ratings spell good news for Comedy Central, as the first episode drew 3.8 million viewers, according to Deadline. The series is executive produced by Nora Lum, Karey Dornetto, Lucia Aniello, Teresa Hsiao, Peter Principato and Itay Reiss of Artists First.
