Amy Anderson

Background/Training

After suppressing her childhood dreams to become a major league baseball pitcher or Animal from The Muppets, Amy Anderson realized from an early age that comedy was the only way for her to go. Originally from Texas, Amy learned live performance helping literary troupe The Fiction Circus to bring their readings to life in Austin. She studied at St. Edward’s University, earning a degree in Media Communications and a Minor in Creative Writing. After navigating academia, Amy went on to the exciting world of film, earning her I.A.T.S.E. union card as a screen worker. Eventually she followed the silver screen (well, color…3D even) to New Orleans, working on a number of films as the Big Easy became the Hollywood of the South.

About Amy

Amy Anderson has been performing stand-up comedy since 2008. Her tiny stature coupled with her massive swagger earned her the nickname “The Enforcer” and she has been quite the muscle to be reckoned with ever since.  Amy is a regular performer locally and can usually be found anywhere from The House of Blues to The Lost Love Lounge. Opening for the likes of Tony Woods and Darryl Hammond, Amy has cut her comedy teeth and is hungry for more. Her stint hosting the La Nuit Open Mic from 2009-2010 introduced her to the unstoppable improv energy that is Stupid Time Machine. With their gentle encouragement and her undeniable skill to recognize a good opportunity when it comes her way (ok, maybe not the first time, but usually the second or third…geez), Amy decided to join The New Movement and couldn’t be more thrilled to be have a place in this awesome community.
