      Takeout with Tammy is the Georgia Straight’s new food series, where we invite renowned guests to chat over mouthwatering takeout fare.

      Andrea Jin is a Vancouver comedian who just finished as a finalist at the SiriusXM Top Comic contest. She has been doing comedy for just four years, but has already appeared all over the city and at last year's JFL NorthWest.

      She’ll be opening for Eugene Mirman (Flight of the Conchords, Bob’s Burgers) on November 22 at Venue Nightclub as part of the inaugural Big Fun! Festival.

      Jin took some time to come to our office to discuss comedy, what it was like moving from Shanghai to Vancouver, getting starting in the Vancouver comedy scene, and having to move neighbourhoods after catching someone masturbating at a bus stop.

      We chatted over takeout from Bob Likes Thai Food, had a conversation while doing ASMR mukbang, and tried some interesting treats from a local convenience store.
