BIOGRAPHY

She’s a middle-age single woman who is definitely nobody’s mom. She’s your best nightmare: a fearless comic with a sharp sense of irony who will challenge your assumptions about older ladies, while still relating to all ages. You don’t see a lot of women like her onstage in comedy clubs, but Amanda Cohen is an exception, and some audience crave the exception. She may look like a mom but her act isn’t always kid-friendly. Even when her language is clean she goes dark and takes on very sex, religion, and face painting. She has 16 years in comedy...not in a row. Amanda started doing comedy when she was 17 in Northampton, Mass., and before she finished college in Pittsburgh she was showcasing at clubs and colleges across the upper midwest, and MCed at many great comedy clubs that don't exist anymore. She quit for a few years to study improv at the Second City Conservatory in Chicago. For a while she hosted burlesque shows in Chicago, occasionally performing burlesque as well. In 2015, she had an epiphany and remembered she was a stand-up comedian. She came back older but wiser and sharper. After a couple of years in the Chicago scene, she’s now based in LA and has showcased at Zanies and The Laugh Factory in Chicago, The Comedy Store in LA, Flappers in Burbank, and several other venues. She’s played bars, bookstores, basements, and barns. She placed Top 16 in the 2019 and 2020 World Series of Comedy competitions, and Top 6 in the 2019 San Diego Comedy Contest.
