Fun facts about Ayo Edebiri:
According to Variety, she’s a Boston-born, Brooklyn-based comedian and writer. She’s in the sketch group Lo-Fi and currently works at The Rundown on BET. She first became interested in comedy through eighth-grade drama class, after which she joined the improv club.
She’s the host of a podcast tagged “Iconography” with Olivia Craighead, in which they discuss guests’ personal celebrity icons.
In a 2019 interview with Forbes, she spoke about working with NBC’s American comedy “Sunnyside“. She said:
It is really cool because the show is about immigrants. Both of my parents are immigrants and everyone in the writers’ room is either an immigrant themselves, first-generation or married to an immigrant or connected to the immigrant experience in some sense. It’s such a nice and supportive room. It’s cool getting to be in that space and imagine a world where shows like this don’t feel rare. In addition to that also it makes me laugh.
