1. Anna started with standup
Before she became a YouTube sensation with more than a million subscribers, Akana did standup comedy. However, she started having severe panic attacks and anxiety before taking the stage so she switched to YouTube. Thankfully, Anna has gone back to doing standup as well.

On Valentine’s Day 2007, Anna’s 13-year-old sister committed suicide. Anna is very vocal on the topic and, in 2013, released a video entitled, “Please don’t kill yourself.” She also authored a book that came out that same year. Surviving Suicide is a collection of her journal entries from the two years following the incident.
3. Seeing Margaret Cho perform helped her through this time
Months after her sister’s death, she laughed for the first time when watching a Margaret Cho special on Comedy Central. This was her inspiration for pursuing comedy as she saw it as a means of helping her move on with her life.

In 2014, she founded a comedy music duo with another comedian and writer, Megan Rosati. The two call their band Cat Benatar.
5. Her YouTube channel features six short films made in one year
