ATSUKO OKATSUKA is a stand-up comedian, actor, and writer based in LA. Atsuko was born in Taiwan and spent her childhood in Japan. Her debut standup special, THE INTRUDER – directed by Tig Notaro premiered on HBO, December 2022 and has been named "Best Debut Special of 2022" by the New York Times and one of the "Best Specials of 2022" by Vulture. It has since won the Gracie Awards as "Best Special" in 2023 and Atsuko herself is nominated as "Best Comedian" by the Wowie Awards. 

She was named one of Variety’s 10 Comics to Watch for 2022, and when she made her late night stand-up debut on THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH JAMES CORDEN, Vulture proclaimed she “won late-night.” She was the special correspondent on Arsenio!

She's written for Adult Swim's THE ERIC ANDRE SHOW and SOFT FOCUS WITH JENA FRIEDMAN. Atsuko’s on-screen credits include HISTORY OF THE WORLD PT.

She was raised by her grandmother, and they created the #DropChallenge together which has amassed more than 10 million views. Her unique upbringing brings an artfully-offbeat resilient persona which is perfectly embodied in her blunt bangs and bowl cut.
