As for her own narrative, ORI emigrated to the U.S. from Nigeria at age 6 and grew up in Maryland. “It was the traditional immigrant story of my parents wanting the best for us and bringing us here,” she says.
“My mom would say, ‘We didn’t come to America for you to be popular.’ Which is fair, but as a kid, you’re just like, it would be really nice to have this thing that everyone else has.” After the star got her master’s degree in Public Heath from George Washington University, she says she “disappointed and confused her family” by declaring she wanted to move to New York to pursue stand up comedy.
So much is happening in our community, in our nation, and we get a chance to watch on television and see a version of ourselves that we can actually relate to. However, she was inspired to do comedy as a graduate student when she performed stand-up in the talent portion of a beauty pageant.
After graduate school, in 2009, ORI moved to New York City to pursue a career in comedy. In 2015, she landed the role of Molly on Insecure without an agent or any real acting experience.
