Jeen Yee is a Bay Area based stand up comedian. Born in Canada, raised in California, and having lived overseas for ten years, she’s delighted to be back in the Bay. Jeen has won performed around the world, including in Hong Kong, Istanbul, and Cancun. She’s performed in both English and Spanish, and is still working up the courage to do stand up in Chinese, as her family would be laughing at, not with, her. Her multicultural experiences and past work as a teacher lace her comedy with insight into humans of various ages and contexts. Onstage, you’ll find Jeen toying with perceptions, airing her family’s dirty laundry, and talking about her dog while secretly loving cats.
Jeen thinks laughter is the best sugar to make life’s medicine go down. And she likes awkward metaphors.
