NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Funny woman Amanda Seales is a rising star in the comedy world. She's now taking the stage in a 1-hour solo comedy show.
'Amanda Seales: I Be Knowin' airs Sat., Jan. 26 at 10 p.m. on HBO.
"I am really fortunate to be able to do my special the way I wanted to," said Seales. "HBO let me go the distance."
Seales recounts actual funny moments that have occurred to her.
"This special is for black women," said Seales.
"Everybody else can enjoy it like it, love it, etc, but I feel that black women, especially in the comedy space, we do not get our just do. I am only the second woman after Wanda Sykes to get a comedy special on HBO and that was 10 years ago so I really wanted to make sure that I was speaking for us honestly and earnestly."
