Masami Hisamoto (久本雅美 Hisamoto Masami?), (July 9, 1958 – ) is a Japanese comedian,[1] actress, singer and tarento from Osaka, Hirano Ward, belonging to the Wahaha talent agency. She is also, as of 2007, the head of the fine arts department of Soka Gakkai International. She is unmarried.

She often works with her younger sister, Tomoko Hisamoto (久本朋子 Hisamoto Tomoko?).

She has become something of an internet meme on video sharing websites such as Nico Nico Douga and rarely YouTube (due to most of them usually being removed from YouTube by Shinano Art (sometimes called "Shiano Art" or "Shinano Kikaku")), where users create MAD movies out of videos of her television appearances.
