Amanda Brooke Perrin
Coming from an improvisational and sketch background, former Calgarian, now Toronto based Amanda Brooke Perrin ventured out into the stand up scene in 2007. Since then, she has multiple comedy festivals under her belt including The 2012 Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland and The 2012 Women In Comedy Festival in Boston. Her training includes sketch writing and improv at The Upright Citizens Brigade and Groundlings Theatres in Los Angeles. In 2011, she worked as The Comedy Network’s “Social Media Insider,” after winning the network’s “Best Summer Job” competition. She is currently writing for a North American animated comedy series premiering this fall and will be a contributor to CTV’s newest sitcom “Spun Out” starring Kids In The Hall alumni, Dave Foley.
Amanda was also nominated for Best Stand Up Newcomer at the 2010 Canadian Comedy Awards and will be taping her first episode of CBC Radio’s “The Debaters” this May. Despite all of these credits, her proudest achievement to date is moving out of her parents’ house before her older brother did.
