SEASON:

Season 1
Awkwafina is Nora From Queens

Critics Consensus

Nora From Queens showcases Awkwafina's charming brashness and surrounds her with an equally delightful cast -- especially scene stealer Lori Tan Chinn -- but it could stand to walk a less familiar comedic beat.

Particularly when Lum works with the other main members of the cast, the show is really funny and very appealing.

Nora From Queens definitely bears the mark of the quirky Comedy Central anti-heroines who came before her, at its core the show nails two of the most important things for a successful sitcom: a distinct point of view and genuine heart.

But ultimately, the show is Awkwafina's baby all the way, as she brings her own fearless twists to the slacker genre. She has the chops to anchor a series, and the wisdom to let other performers steal scenes.

"Nora" is a unbridled joy.

Top Critic

Like Awkwafina herself, the show's charm and warm humor smoothly carry it, and its star channels both of those qualities into every moment, whether she's being rowdy, dirty, or introspective.

"Awkwakfina Is Nora From Queens" needs to find its own identity - and fast.

Top Critic

Awkwafina's chemistry with her sympathetic widowed dad and no-nonsense grandma is also choice, with both relationships reading as lived-in and affectionate.

Jan 23, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Awkwafina is pretty funny, but so is the rest of the cast, and she grounds her comedy by concentrating on her family.

Jan 22, 2020 | Full Review…

Chinn is as close as the show comes to having a co-lead. She takes full advantage of a winning chemistry with Awkwafina to create some memorable moments.

Jan 22, 2020 | Full Review…

The series has already been renewed for a second season, and while the early episodes have their rocky moments, Nora From Queens is a show fully capable of finding the perfect footing-even if its lead character can't.

Jan 22, 2020 | Full Review…

The show is fine, albeit very dumb, and it's an entirely different dramatic sport that only underscores her ability-a little uncomfortable but totally undeniable-to play a whole lot of different sports.

Jan 24, 2020 | Full Review…

Nora from Queens is sweet and simple, even if at times it seems like it's too formulaic of a show to encompass Lum's range as a comedic weirdo.

    Love it! A great show that uses humor to showcase the difficulties of being a modern Asian American with a popular award winning cast.

    Awkwardly funny. Refreshing and real. A 27-year -old Asian American flawed stoner so less glamorous and real.

    I love this show and her grandma is so funny

    Meh, it passed the time.

    Hilarious from start to finish.

    This show is awful and disgusting! The only show worth anything on comedy central is South Park! South Park basically keeps comedy central alive if South Park left that channel would die and I wish it would!

    I cannot believe this show was given the green light. This show contains the worst "comedy" I've ever seen. Get it off the air, Comedy Central. This is the worst one you've put out yet.

    Awkwafina is talented. She loves to blaze and makes me laugh.
  • Jan 29, 2020
    I thought I would like this since I like Awkwafina but it looks like she is better in small doses. It's just too much, just the joke no show around it.

    Solid scripts, good performance. Nice and funny
