She performs year-round in clubs and casinos around the country including The Comedy Store, The Ice House, New York’s Comic Strip, Caroline’s, Gotham Comedy Club, Stand-Up New York and she most recently opened for Paul Reiser at the Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach.

Emcee: Amanda Cohen
She’s OG GenX, and nobody’s mom. She’s your best nightmare: a junior crone with a sharp sense of irony who will challenge your assumptions about women of a certain age, while still relating to all ages. She’s played bars, breweries, bookstores, basements, backyards, buses, and barns, and of course clubs and colleges. She studied improv at Second City Conservatory, The Annoyance Theater, and ComedySportz.
She’s been seen on ABC, TLC, IFC, NBC, CNN, ESPN, and What Not To Wear, and heard on The Doctor Demento Show. She’s opened for Paula Poundstone, Gilbert Gottfried, Jake Johannson, and many non-alliterative comedians as well. How long ago? She once hosted a show with a young feature named Patton Oswalt.
This is an all ages show.
