Arianne Tong //
does comedy…
& stuff*

Arianne Tong likes to laugh and make you do it sometimes, too.

 

Arianne Tong is a high-energy, positively sardonic performer whose ‘schtick' is sticking it to ‘The Man’. She is a queer person of colour that is a woman (just barely), otherwise known as an ‘intersectional trail mix’ or ‘the perfect diversity hire’. She loves making jokes about masculinity, femininity and the hypocrisy of our society poking fun at both ignorance and self-awareness. She is generally tired of being woke, and also just tired because she’s been awake all-night binging Forensic Files and wondering if her girlfriend will ever just ‘Gone Girl’ her because you can never really know a person, can you?

Anyways, if you’re looking for a fun, sassy, relatable, light-hearted yet conscientious young woman to perform at or host your next wedding, bar crawl, dog’s birthday, games night gender reveal party, bar mitzvah, divorce party, or other major life event, choose Arianne Tong. Why? Because she’s won the hearts of literally every parent she has been introduced to, and she’s got friends in high and low places. She’s like the index fund of comedy; you can’t really go wrong.
