Amanda started doing comedy when she was 17 and after just 12 years she quit standup to pursue improv at the Second City Conservatory in Chicago. In that past life, Amanda played clubs and colleges across the upper midwest, including many great comedy clubs that don’t exist anymore. After an epiphany in 2015, she remembered she was a comedian. She has since showcased at Zanies and Laugh Factory in Chicago, Flappers Burbank, Chicago Women’s Funny Festival, and the Milwaukee Comedy Festival. Her influences include George Carlin, Paula Poundstone, and Dana Gould.
