Miyo the Storyteller
Miyo Yamauchi is a storyteller with a mischievous vein who resides in Southern California.
Born and raised in Japan, she weaves a unique perspective and wry humor into her stories. She majored in Swahili in college (no, seriously!), but now speaks computer languages as a programmer. In addition to writing narratives for computers to perform, she enjoys writing and performing personal stories.
Her solo show, “How To Be Japanese,” at the Hollywood Fringe was sold out within the first 48 hours and it was featured on the National Storytelling Network in 2022.
More shows are coming! Please follow her at @miyo.thestoryteller or miyo.net.
