Hello! I'm Lena Anani.

I'm an Arab-American comedian, writer, and actor who learned how to be funny at The Second City in Chicago.

My hometown is Disneyland, but I'm currently living in the Joshua Tree area because I love the desert (yes, I know there's a joke there about being an Arab who loves the desert, but I love dessert even more).

I'm navigating quarantine-life by playing Animal Crossing New Horizons, posting mediocre one-liners on Twitter, and snuggling with my body pillow pretending it's my soul mate.

Thanks for visiting and validating my career choice. Be sure to get your parking validated on your way out.
