Your Normal Is Not My Normal!

What is your normal? Conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected. All of us at some times or in some ways feel like outsiders. That whatever it is that is normal does not include us. But when we enter a new culture, we actually are the outsider. An excellent vantage point to question your normal.

How To Be Japanese is directed by LA storytelling luminary Jane Morris and will be performed at the Fanatic Salon at 3815 Sawtelle Blvd, Culver City, CA 90066 on Saturday, October 1, 2022, at 8 pm. Tickets are $15.

Yamauchi was born and raised in Japan, but now resides in Southern California where she is a mainstay audience favorite at popular storytelling venues like the Fanatic Salon Theater, Strong Words, Turbine Arts Collective, and the StoryMasters club.

“Yamauchi is at her best when tendering cultural insights. She shows herself to be an enjoyable and very entertaining storyteller.” (Ernest Kearney/Award-winning L.A. playwright)


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.
