Spotlight on Up & Coming Latinx Creators: Tamara Yajia


Tamara Yajia is an Argentinian comedian, writer, actress and musician. Originally from Buenos Aires, Tam moved to the United States as a teenager. After her family’s tourist visa expired, she spent some time undocumented and credits her past experiences and Latin heritage for helping find her voice as a comedian.

Her comedy, like the Funny Or Die series Telenovelas Are Hell, helps bring people together and is all about being yourself. She’s been hailed by Playboy as “one of the funniest women on Twitter.” Tam has written for Clickhole, The Cut, Merry Jane and Funny Or Die, and is best known for her Funny Or Die series ‘Me Llamo Alma’ and ‘Movie Mama” — where she gets drunk and watches a classic or cult movie she’s never seen before.
