How I really feel:

My name is Amanda. By day, I’m the founder/owner/artistic director of the Dallas Comedy House. It’s a dream come true, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. By night, I’m a Dallas-based comedian, writer, and actor.  I’m a teacher, performer, and lover of comedy. I also have some real world credits like a college degree (Gig ‘Em), certified public speaker, and proud winner of the 4th grade Daughter’s of the American Revolution Essay Contest about Cyrus McCormick and his reaper.

I want to write professional for television and film. If you want to hire me, I’ll probably say yes. Unless it’s something that would embarrass my grandparents or require me to wear a bikini in public. Then I’ll probably ask for more money.
