Issa Rae pays homage to '90s sitcoms with new photo shoot

"Insecure" actress and creator Issa Rae pays homage to some of the funniest sitcoms of the late 1980s and early 1990s including "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," "Brandy" and "A Different World" with a photo spread that brings back warm memories for fans.

In the photos she channels her inner  Dwayne Wayne, played by Kadeem Hardison, almost to the point you can  hear Whitley Gilbert's southern drawl calling "Dwaaaaayyyne."

Rae graces the cover of  GQ's "Comedy Issue" along with Sarah Silverman, Kate McKinnon.

Rae first attracted attention for her work on the YouTube web series "Awkward Black Girl."
