Amanda Egge has a BA in Philosophy from Reed College where she wrote her thesis on Vagueness. After a brief stint in graduate school, she moved to Los Angeles, joined a cult (but not the one you're thinking of!) and became a stand-up comic. A collector of somewhat expensive pieces of paper, Amanda has a "Master of Improvisation" certificate from the Second City Conservatory Program, where she co-wrote and performed in the sketch show A Monkey could do this Shit! At Improv Olympic West, she has performed with such groups as The Fucking Bastards, The Jamericans and The Molotov Tale Cocks. She has also performed in The Pretty Okay Ho-hum Spectacular on Ice as Lotta Throat. In her spare time she writes for the website Ruthless Reviews, produces a weekly podcast from her studio apartment and takes power naps.
