In this episode, we chat with Jenny Arimoto, an NYC-based comedian who spends her weekdays sending lots of email at Google. When Jenny’s not writing comedy sketches and performing improv with the Upright Citizens Brigade NY (psssst, Amy Poehler used to perform with this group! ), she's helping the world get around a little better with the Google Maps team.
Jenny is a Swiss army knife of a human who can command a meeting room as well as she can a comedy club. She also happens to be 4th generation Japanese American.
We chat with Jenny about her transformation from quiet wallflower to center stage comedian, how to own a room without having to be the loudest person in it, and the realities of pursuing a career in the arts.
