STATLER HALL—Capitalizing upon the success of her role in HBO’s Insecure, Amanda Seales is set to perform stand-up comedy this Saturday before an audience of up to 700 insecure Cornell students.
“I’m excited to take what I’ve learned from acting on Insecure to my set in front of students beaten down by prelims, wondering if they deserve to attend Cornell,” said Seales, who added that she’s excited to “give back” to the insecure community.
Students around campus who are deeply unsure of whether their friends truly like them have expressed excitement about the upcoming performance. “I’m a huge fan of the show! Also, I am in a constant panic spiral about whether my parents are disappointed in me. So I’ve made sure to get front-row seats,” said Dante Myers ‘20.
While Seales is expected to deliver a hilarious performance, organizers are afraid students will hold their laughter after each joke in case the person next to them thinks it isn’t funny.
