Biography

Don't let the name fool you...Amy Anderson has been described as "a skinny Margaret Cho" and "a heterosexual, Asian Ellen". She would describe herself as "a funny American girl who happened to be born in Korea and adopted by Swedish parents in suburban Minnesota." She is a true one-of-a-kind on the comedy scene and her act will remind you to never judge a book by its cover.

Long before Ms. Anderson graced the stage of a comedy club she was performing as a musician. A singer and pianist since the age of two and also an accomplished guitarist, she earned her B.A. in classical music from the prestigious Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey.

Ultimately, Amy Anderson decided music was not her calling and hearkened back to the advice of her first grade teacher, Ms. Nickel: "Amy, you should become a comedian... now go to the principal's office." After a lengthy stint in the principal's office, and a couple years working as a temp, a waitress, a dog walker, a luggage salesperson, a boarding school dorm mother, a boy choir manager, and a behavior modification specialist for autistic adults, she decided to check out the Twin Cities comedy scene. She spent six years working in Minneapolis/St Paul as a comedian, theatre and commercial actor, sketch writer, and improv teacher and performer before heading to Los Angeles.

Ms. Anderson has established herself as one of the hottest up-and-coming comedians in the country by creating and hosting the first ever Asian American, stand up showcase Chop-SHTICK, at the legendary Friars of Beverly Hills and the Hollywood Improv. You can see her on the Game Show Network, Comedy Central, Sitv, Mun2, AZN, VH1, QTN and The Tom Joyner Show on ABC and was recently a featured comedian at HBO's The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas. She has appeared in several national television commercials and if you have satellite radio, you can hear her on both Sirius and XM comedy channels. She is currently headlining college and corporate shows throughout the U.S., giving keynotes speeches about transnational and transracial adoption, and is working on several TV projects.
