Someone how it slipped our notice at Blallywood.com, but Issa Rae, Awkward Black Girl on YouTube, appeared as a guest on Katie Couric back on January. She was part of a new segment titled “One To Watch.” In the interview, Rae discusses how she came up with the idea behind Awkward Black Girl. In addition to the traditional interview, Couric participated with Issa Rae in a few comedy awkward skits.

Three videos are posted below. The first is the interview, the second are the comedy shorts featuring Rae and Couric.

How nice of Katie Couric to play along. I thought things got a little tense in addition to just plain awkward. What did you think of the comedy short?
