Vibe with us every Friday night on TBS’ “Friday Night Vibes™.” This week host Tiffany Haddish and co-host Deon Cole chat with comedian and Emmy®-nominated actress Yvonne Orji about the final season of “Insecure,” her book coming out this spring entitled “Bamboozled by Jesus: How God Tricked Me Into the Life of My Dreams” and her new Netflix movie ‘Vacation Friends.” They also speak with actor and stand-up comedian Jimmy O. Yang about some of the interesting jobs he had after moving to the United States at the age of thirteen, if he thinks “Crazy Rich Asians” led to a wider range of representation for Asians in film and television and how he has dealt with the rise in hate crimes against Asian-Americans in his personal life. Together, they pay homage to some of the greatest Black female casts of all time, discuss how long it took their parents to embrace their careers in comedy, reflect on what era of comedy has most influenced their comedic styles, and debate whether Americans work too much in honor of Labor Day this weekend. They also play a game of “Fishin’ & Dishin'” to help set the stage for the broadcast of “Let’s Be Cops” and “Set It Off” Friday, September 3 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
