Andrea's debut standup comedy album is funny, charming, unique yet relatable. All the jokes reflect on her life as a young Asian woman trying her best to be a good person to her family and the people around her, all the while airing out her intrusive thoughts and complaints on stage recorded for you to enjoy. It was reviewed as the number 1 Canadian Comedy Album of 2021 in Now Magazine and won the Juno Award for Comedy Album of the Year.
