'Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens' Season 1 Preview: Nora gets a 'sick burn' from her neighbor
Golden Globe winner Awkwafina is all set to enthrall millennials with her show 'Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens'. Semi-autobiographical, Nora Lum (Awkwafina) will take the viewers on a journey of a 20-something woman battling her way through her stagnant twenties, trying to find direction in life as she sifts through odd jobs and lives on a constrained budget. Her family, which includes a cussing grandmother (Lori Tan Chinn) and a widower father (BD Wong), stand beside her as rock-solid support, despite their misgivings.
In a new promo for the show, Nora makes small talk with her neighbor while taking out the trash. He tells her that he's going to give his SATS and that he wants to get a good score and make it to a law college and fulfill his dream of being a sports attorney. Nora asks, "Oh so you already know what you're going to do when you grow up?"
He retorts, "Of course, I don't want to end up like one of those losers who just end up with their parents at home and float through life like a towney log." Nora's expressions are inscrutable for a few seconds and then she bursts out laughing, saying, "Sick burn, dude!" They part ways and the judgemental youth says to himself disdainfully, "Sad."
'Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens' airs on Comedy Central at 10:30 pm on Wednesdays. The first episode premieres on January 22. Awkwafina is also the executive producer of the show.
Awkwafina, who recently won a Golden Globe for her performance in 'The Farewell' is an American actress and rapper, who has played supporting roles in films like 'Oceans 8', 'Crazy Rich Asians', 'Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising' and 'Jumanji: The Next Level'.
