Coming from an improv and sketch
background, Amanda ventured out into the stand-up comedy scene in 2007. Since
then, she has multiple comedy festivals under her belt including Just For
Laughs, The Bridgetown Comedy Festival, JFL42, NXNE, The Women In Comedy
Festival and Sled Island.
Her training includes sketch writing
and improv at The Upright Citizens Brigade and The Groundlings in Los Angeles. Most recently, she won Best Female Stand Up in NOW magazine’s Best Of T.O. Reader’s Choice Awards. She's also been nominated for Best Stand Up Newcomer, Best Breakout Artist and Best
Audio Show for her podcast We’re Doing It at The Canadian Comedy Awards.
She’s written for Hulu/City TV's
animation Mother Up! featuring the voice of Desperate Housewive's
star Eva Longoria and has worked with Kids In The Hall alumni Dave
Foley, Bruce Mcculloch and Mark McKinney. You can also see her on The Comedy Network's Match Game,
alongside SCTV's Catherine O'Hara.
Amanda has opened for the likes of
Kurt Braunohler, Jackie Kashian, Joe Mande, James Adomian and featured on Andy
Kindler's Alternative Show.
Despite all of these EARTH SHATTERING credits, her
proudest achievement to date is moving out of her parents’ house before her
older brother did.
