Awkwafina stars in her Comedy Central television series, ‘Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens.’

People often have to expand their life experiences in order to truly appreciate the relationships and circumstances they already have, even if they aren’t always happy with them. That’s certainly the case for the title performer of the comedy show, ‘Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens,’ which is loosely based on her real life in New York City. Along with Teresa Hsiao, the Golden Globe Award-winning actress created the television series, whose first season premiered in January on Comedy Central.

Repeats from the first season are now airing on BBC One‘s channel on Filmon TV. (Note that the BBC One channel is only available for free to viewers in the UK, and international users who have a paid subscription.) The next episode to air on Filmon will stream this evening at 6:30-6:50pm local time. It can be watched live, or recorded and watched at a later time.

Episode nine of Season 1 of ‘Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens,’ which is titled ‘Launch Party,’ was written by Cherry Chevapravatdumrong, and directed by Lucia Aniello. It follows Nora as she and Edmund (Bowen Yang) prepare to launch their app, and Wally’s (BD Wong) dinner date goes terribly awry. The episode contains strong language and adult humor.

The BBC One channel is notable for offering something of value for everyone with a range of high-quality, popular programming for a modern UK audience. The channel was named Channel of the Year at the 2007 Broadcast Awards.
