Issa Rae is a loveable American comedian who has been producing web based comedy since 2012. Her stringent observations on life have won her legions of fans, a successful web series and a book deal.
It was only a matter of time before she was snapped up by one of the major networks and Issa was smart to go with HBO.
Insecure “Follows the awkward experiences and racy tribulations of a modern-day African-American woman.”
I’m an awkward person and within the first scene I was cringing as Issa deals with a bunch of obnoxious high school kids, smiling, long silences and over sharing is something I have done in far too many situations.
Not only following Issa, Insecure also features Molly, Issa’s best friend whom on the surface seems to have her life together but keeps on getting into ‘not really’ relationships.
Insecure is a cute comedy at it’s heart with an honesty to it that you don’t find with the likes of Broad City or New Girl sort of a comedy for people who’ve felt shortchanged by their TV for the last couple of years. I’m really looking forward to seeing where this goes…
