Episode 39 - Yuriko Kotani

The Comedian's Tea Party with Si Deaves

Bienvenue, mes petits amis du thé, That greeting will make more sense as you get into the podcast. In this episode my guest is the wonderful Yuriko Kotani. We have an incredibly fun chat in which we rewrite the way that all future Edinburgh Fringe shows will be written, we talk about speaking different languages and we get deeply philosophical in the most silly of manners and manage not to cry. Don't forget if you want to support the podcast and help keep it running, help me get some high profile guests and generally help to alleviate the stress, you can donate at https://ko-fi.com/sideaves and I'll even give you a lovely shout out. Also, there may well be some merch coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled! You can check out Yuriko online at; I - @YurikoComedyT - @YurikoComedyF - Yuriko Kotani Comedy Then check out the podcast in its other locations at; I - @tpartypodT - @tpartypodF - The Comedian's Tea Party Until the next time, don't get into trouble, stay lucky, drink a tea. Much love,SiX

Japanese Comedian in the UK Yuriko Kotani on the Realities of Studying Abroad, Translation and Comedy

Life in a Second Language with Spring Day

Spring Day, an American comedian brushing up on her Japanese skills, interviews people from all walks of life about their experience living, working, traveling, studying and loving in a second language—often in adult language so this podcast may not always be appropriate for young ears. On this episode we talk to the amazing Japanese comedian in the UK and winner of the BBC New Comedy Award, Yuriko Kotani. We talk about her year abroad at a high school in Minnesota, her expectations when she started studying English abroad, and why she has so much respect for translators. Don't worry, we talk about some pretty silly stuff as well. Please check out and  support Yuriko by going to her webpage yurikokotani.com
