Amanda Seales of HBO’s Insecure will make her comedy special debut on the premium channel early in 2019, HBO announced today. The one-hour special will be taped this month in New York.

Amanda Seales: I Be Knowin’, written by Seales and directed by Stan Lathan, will be produced by Jesse Collins Entertainment. The special was announced today by Nina Rosenstein, EVP Programming at HBO.

“Being a stand-up comic is an honor I don’t take lightly,” Seales said, “because I consider humor to be a superpower that allows us to bear the weight of issues and concepts that otherwise seem so much bigger than us.

I Be Knowin’ is 37 years of finding the funny, culminating in an hour, and my HBO family being the place where I get to share it, makes this, my first special, even that much more special,” she said.

Seales plays Tiffany on Insecure, and has guest-starred on ABC’s Black-ish, as well as written, produced and starred in two seasons of her own scripted web comedy series Get Your Life. She hosts a weekly podcast called Small Doses, and is touring with Smart Funny & Black, a live comedic competition show she created.
