Amanda started doing comedy when she was 17 and in 12 short years, she quit standup to pursue improv at the Second City Conservatory in Chicago. In that past life, Amanda played many great comedy clubs that don't exist anymore. As a feature she opened for Paula Poundstone, Gilbert Gottfried, Jake Johannson, and many non-alliterative comedians as well. How long ago? She once did a show in Virginia with a young feature named Patton Oswalt. Yes, feature. Then after an epiphany in 2015, she remembered she was a comedian and came back to us. Today she's based in LA and is looking forward to the 2017 Burbank Comedy Festival. Her influences include George Carlin, Albert Brooks, Paula Poundstone, and Dana Gould.
