Growing up in a family that her friends dubbed “the Jewish Griswalds,” Amy Shanker had no choice but to go into standup comedy. As a former inner-city high school teacher, Amy’s dry comedic style and general outlook on life stem from an edgier perspective.
You’ve seen her on HBO and Kevin Hart’s LOL Network. She’s opened for Colin Quinn, Kyle Kinane, Gary Gulman, Chad Daniels, etc. Amy got her start in Chicago where she was a regular at Laugh Factory and Zanies. Catch her now in NYC or performing at clubs across the country. Find Amy on all social media @amyshanker
