If you’re a woman from Los Angeles, I can almost guarantee that one time or another you’ve uttered the words, “I hate L.A. guys.” I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I’ve never really been attracted to fellas from my hometown. Perhaps familiarity really does breed contempt, because if you quickly survey my sister circle, they’ll tell you the same thing.

Enter Issa Rae, an L.A. native and the comic genius behind Awkward Black Girl. Recently Rae dropped the promo for her newest creation, Issa Rae Presents and like its ABG counterpart, it’s hilarious.

The first minisode of Issa Rae Presents, “I Hate L.A. Dudes,” pinpoints why many of us female Angelenos shy away from our hometown dudes. I won’t comment too much and spoil the clip, but let’s just say that I’m not feeling any guy who spends this much time getting himself together, no matter where he’s from.

How about you?

    Funny! I love Issa Rae! She has a vid where she talks about “ratchet” music which is also funny.

  • LMBO! Can’t wait for this! Too funny!

    I love Issa Rae…her writing and characters are so relatable and I can’t wait until a network picks up ABG – I just hope they stay true to the essence of the show when it hits the TV. I think OWN or even HBO should pick it up…ABG already has a fan base and will have more to follow.
