The Misadventures of AWKWARD Black Girl

 Awkward Black GirlThe Misadventures of AWKWARD Black Girl is wildly popular comedy web seriescreated by Director/Writer/Editor/Actor Issa Rae. ABG has everything you could want in a comedy. It’s all about an awkward woman and her awkward friend, an annoying suiter and a cute Black guy, a cute White guy… It’s no wonder that ABG fans scream for new episodes.   


Our Halloween episode gives a special shout-out to all of those women who put hours of time and creative effort into their costumes, only to be overshadowed by a hot, slutty pussycat. We get you.
One of my favorite ABG episodes/moments has to be ‘The Hallway.’ There’s just something about seeing a person more than once within a 1-hour time frame that really makes me uncomfortable. I can’t even explain why. It’s the stupidest, most trivial thing in the world, but it’s a big deal to me. Whenever I think I’ve ‘outgrown’ my awkwardness, I’ll see someone I know THREE times in a grocery store and know the truth about who I really am.

My biggest turn-off/pet peeve is when I hear guys make these generalizations that women aren’t funny. I’m SO freaking glad Funny Not Slutty exists to prove those cavemen wrong. No offense, of course, to cavemen who think women are funny.

  1. You had me at your cartoon head. I have a blogcrush on AWG. There. I said it.

  2. Hooray for Issa Rae! And thank you Jacki Schklar! In a field glutted with a lot of guys with their guy points of view, it’s great to see ABG breaking through the clutter and exploding with popularity. Giving you a standing ovation. Right here at my desk.

  3. Jacki: I have found the very funniest women here.

    Thank you.

  4. Fantastic.

    I was just reading an article that discussed a study where men only think they are funnier. A blind test of jokes showed that women’s jokes were just as funny. BECAUSE THEY ARE.
