Tamara Yajia Refuses to Confirm or Deny Her QAnon Affiliation

Thanks to the coronavirus, comedians are now trapped at home like the rest of us, so we decided that while we’re all self-quarantining, we’d do something a little different from our usual “Follow Friday” column. Instead of interviewing up-and-coming comedians we love on Twitter, we’re going live on Instagram every week to check in on some of our favorite people in comedy and get a firsthand look into how they’re handling the pandemic. So welcome to our new version of the column, now titled “Follow (From a Safe Distance) Friday.”

This week, I lay glamorously prone with Tamara Yajia (Funny or Die, ClickHole, Argentine child star) and her various beverages for a digital conversation about how she’s keeping it together in quarantine. She detailed her tenure as an 11-year-old child performer in an Ace of Base cover band in Argentina, shared her thoughts on the post-corona future of digital comedy, and told us her favorite QAnon conspiracy theories (a group she is, allegedly, not affiliated with). She also poured us some tea about an early-aughts reality-TV star who popped up in the almost soft-core-porn vampire B-movie she had a role in: “We shot a scene in my parents’ room … Tila Tequila had a full sex scene in my parents’ bathtub.”
