Overshare &
Make People Smile.


Aloha! I’m Arianne Tong. I’m a comedy writer, absurd memoirist, and creative strategist working and living in Toronto.


Oh my gosh, where have you been my whole life? Seriously. Where? What the f*ck. I’ve been waiting for like 30 years, this is unacceptable. You think just because you have a killer smile and sparkling personality that you can just keep people waiting? Anyways, let’s move on, babe. What did you miss?

Well, let’s see…childhood was an interesting series of humiliations which has made this whole comedy thing happen. Your girl is a stubborn optimist, casually strolling through emotional battlefields with a bubble machine, battery-operated string lights, and a negroni.

I was deep undercover for 25 years, posing as a straight woman, then finally cracked what I am calling ‘the case of the closeted queer’ (the call was coming from inside the house the whole time - a classic, albeit clichéd, plot twist).

I did the standard university thing (nailed it) while dreaming of screenwriting and performing on the side, then briefly (not so briefly, but briefly in the context of my entire 86 year lifespan according to a very convincing spiritual guide, Marilyn) did the standard corporate thing (also nailed it) where your girl learned to do ‘the business’. Just for context, ‘the business’ includes saying words like ‘engagement’, ‘from a brand perspective…’, and ‘does this slide make my deck look too big?’ After dealing with Susan, Carol and sometimes Linda’s sh*t for longer than any self-respecting human should have to endure, the dream is back in full swing.

And so here we are, staring into each others eyes like a couple of long lost loves. Or, at the very least, a couple of canines that just spotted each other in the distance - intrigued and tails wagging (I hope that’s a tail).

My love, my passion, my purpose is first and foremost to make people smile. To feel actual joy is something we forget in work, and we forget our work can be anything we want it to be. My mission is to make people smile in whatever it is that I’m doing at the moment - whether that’s through oversharing my experiences through comedy, connecting creative people I love, or creating unforgettable experiences that energize and inspire people of all kinds and minds.


Much love,
