Welcome to the Author Archive for Dan Hamamura




dan-ham.jpg Dan Hamamura Staff Contributor: Dan is a Staff Contributor for Pajiba. He writes primarily about television, comedy, and Asians, and is very happy that all three can now (occasionally) be discussed simultaneously. Dan lives in Los Angeles, which means he has done improv and has a podcast, but he swears he is not an actor. You can listen to him scream into the void on Twitter.
