Over the past few years, Amy has starred in multiple episodes, filming in NYC, Arizona, and even Puerto Rico! She has also been featured on TLC’s spinoff TV series Randy Knows Bestas a top 10 bride.
In just a short time, Amy has showcased with comedy legends Jerry Seinfeld and Jim Gaffigan and has been selected as the opening comedic act for many established headliners, most notably Dave Attell (as seen on Comedy Central's Insomniac & Netflix's Bumping Mics with Jeff Ross), Colin Kane (as seen on The Wedding Ringer movie with Kevin Hart & Showtime), Jill Kimmel (as seen on Kevin Hart Presents: Hart of the City on Comedy Central), Cisco Duran (as seen on Comedy Centraland feature act for Carlos Mencia’s World Tour), Ryan Stout (as seen on Conan, Chelsea Lately, and Comedy Central), as well as Josh Nasar (as seen on the hit show Sons of Anarchy on FX).

Amy’s stand-up comedy is a surprising duality of a smart blonde lawyer with a knack for making fun of herself and her reality television past. She tells her stories from behind the scenes of unscripted TV and all the craziness that comes with it. Although she minored in theater at Arizona State University, or as some refer to it as the Harvard of the Southwest, she pursued a path in law and is now a licensed attorney. With these credentials, no one can mock lawyers and their dreaded egos more effectively than Amy who tells hysterical tales of being a blonde girl navigating the corporate world. At her core, she’s a Midwestern girl who grew up in Minnesota. When not on the road making crowds laugh, Amy now lives with her husband and four cats (3 adopted, 1 biological) in Scottsdale, AZ.
