Amy Blackwell is a quirky Arizona native that has been making people laugh her whole life. Blessed with a God given quick wit and sense of timing coupled with almost no fear of public speaking, she makes a natural stand-up comic. Whether people were laughing at her or with her, she soaked up the attention.
Growing up in rural Arizona, Amy had to rely on her imagination to keep her busy. Putting on lip syncs and plays for her friends and family were an almost every day occurrence. In high school, Amy caught the acting bug when she took drama. She performed in anything and everything she could just to be on stage and entertain. After high school Amy lived life and attended the school of hard knocks, becoming the single mother of two. While raising her two boys, Amy stumbled into an opportunity to tell jokes. She was immediately hooked. Pulling from her life experience and soaking up the world around her she began writing gut busting jokes about her life, children, family, upbringing and dating life (or lack thereof). Random thoughts and observations have become her forte.
Performing clean, family friendly comedy, Amy entertains while attempting to give back as much as she can to serve a greater good. Amy supports many non-profit organizations as a part of her comedy shows and wants to leave a mark in the world for the better.
