Issa Rae’s character, Issa, on her hit HBO show “Insecure” has a part-time gig as a Lyft driver but she tried to sign up as a driver for the ride-hailing app in real life just two years ago. “I rented a car to write the first episodes [of the second season of the show] in December, and the rental car that I had, I drove it all the way to Malibu,” the Los Angeles native said.
