Do you know me? I’m Naomi Watanabe. I’m a comedian, and not to brag, but I’m kind of a big deal in Japan. But... I just moved to America and I’m trying to figure out how to live here. On this show, I talk to my fans and get their advice for American life. Be warned - my English is not that good yet! But I’m working on it and I’m excited to learn with you all by my side. Come watch me grow like a Tamagotchi!
