    Here's 10 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Sleep On "Ziwe"

    “Hi, I’m Ziwe — actress, model, pop star.”

    Last summer, comedian and internet icon Ziwe went viral for interviewing (mostly white) controversial public figures on Instagram Live.

    Now that Instagram Live has been turned into a series on Showtime. And it’s hilarious.

    With the latest release of the new series, here are 10 reasons why you should not sleep on Ziwe:

    1. Ziwe is a fabulous host.
