TUS04_04_05_storytelling_IMG_9871

16 year old Emily Johnon struggles with aneorexia during her tenure at a Catholic high school in California when she has her first hard alcohol at a party with Dakota Fanning. Ms Fanning offers Emily her first cigerette. Emily breaks the fourth wall by asking Ms. Fanning about her best friend Kristin's dating habits. All of this is contrasted with her first experiences in Missoula, Montana where she now makes her home and makes people laugh with her stand up comedy.

Emily Johnson is a California transplant currently trying to make it big in the little city of Missoula, MT. She attended the University of Montana and graduated in 3 1/2 years with an extremely useful English degree that she can't wait to use in all of her Wallstreet business endeavors. She enjoys hiking by herself, telling sub-par jokes, frequenting Flipper's casino, and talking to her little sister on the phone. She tells stand up at Missoula's Homegrown Comedy and is currently writing a novel that will be the voice of her generation, or a generation. She hasn't decided which yet.

This edition of Tell Us Something was recorded on July 25, 2015 at the PEAS Farm in Missoula, MT.  Emily's story is titled "California Transplant". Thank you for listening.
