WATCH: HBO Drops First Trailer For 'Yvonne Orji: Momma, I Made It!'

HBO has dropped a first look at the first comedy special from Insecure star Yvonne Orji.

The hour-long special was taped in front of a live audience at Howard University. It also includes footage shot in Nigeria.

The official description: Interspersed with vibrant, personal footage shot in Nigeria, Yvonne’s native home, during a milestone trip in early January, YVONNE ORJI: MOMMA, I MADE IT! takes an intimate, hilarious look at what being Nigerian-American means to Yvonne – from her international haggling addiction and having her phone tapped by her parents as a kid, to the fine line between cursing people out and putting curses on them. 

Written and produced by Orji, Chris Robinson is the director and it is executive produced by Michelle Caputo and Shannon Hartman. The special is produced by Art & Industry.

Most known for her role on Insecure, Orji has also starred in the film Night School and will star in the upcoming film, Vacation Friends. 

The special debuts June 6 on HBO:
