Irene Tu is a queer Asian American millennial comedian (so her parents are super proud of her). A graduate of UC Berkeley, she started comedy in college and decided pursuing this path was the best use of her college degree. Irene frequently jokes about her childhood, what it’s like being a minority in modern-day America, and her love of food. Named a “Woman to Watch” by KQED in 2016 and one of the Bay Area’s “11 Best Stand-Up Comedians,” Irene has been featured on Viceland and Seeso. She has never met Ellen but holds out hope that one day she will.
