This week in comedy, there is so much going on. But at the front of it seems to be the highly anticipated series Awkwafina is Nora From Queens, which airs Wednesday night on Comedy Central. In a rather unusual move from someone who is just beginning to break in movies (but a welcome move at that), Awkwafina is venturing into new territory when she plays a version of herself growing up in Flushing, Queens. The buzz seems strong enough to warrant a second season pick up before it even premieres.
Also this week in comedy, Fortune Feimster gets her first special Fortune Feimster: Sweet and Salty on Netflix, Vir Das returns to Netflix with his newest special, Vir Das: For India, Outmatched premieres on Fox starring Jason Biggs and Maggie Lawson, and The Ranch comes back to Netflix.
