"The reason I got into comedy is because I love people and I want to uplift their experience and their feelings. I’m not scared of living in the improv world. I kinda thrive in chaos, “yes and”-ing it."
Comedian-actor-writer Atsuko Okatsuka is scheduled to perform at the renowned Moore Theatre in Seattle on Wednesday, October 5th, for her new "Full Grown Adult" Tour! She's a born storyteller and adorably awkward but also mesmerizingly confident, assuring you a good night of comedy.
Okatsuka's humor is artfully offbeat with a childlike quality to it. Her stage persona complete with her signature blunt bangs and bowl cut charms the audience. She reveals a complex and challenging upbringing while being refreshingly frank, honest and side-splittingly funny. Because of that, she quickly reached a large audience online.
In an interview about the time a huge earthquake interrupted her show, she said, "This scary thing, this natural phenomenon, 7.1 [magnitude], hits all of us, everyone’s in a panic but my instinct was to first calm everyone down, and once I realized everyone was OK, go straight into jokes, because again, it’s a service industry where I want to consider the audience: Well, you’re still here for a comedy show, I’m good at being funny. People were like, “How were you able to do that?” I do stand-up comedy most nights out of the week, I grew up with a mom with schizophrenia, I was undocumented for seven years hiding in a garage — at a certain point, an earthquake is like nothing; so is audience interaction."
Her ability to tell a story on heavy topics and make it feel lighter is shown in her first stand-up comedy special titled "The Intruder". She narrates how she navigated through life challenges from her house intruder experience, dealing with mental illness to trying to to impress teenagers.
