Amanda Klein


Amanda grew up in the small town of Prescott Valley, Arizona. She spent  alot of her childhood outdoors chasing lizards, four-wheeling, playing with paint, makeup, and using her imagination to entertain herself and others. One of her childhood memories involves her creating funny songs and dances about oreos and wheat-thins which were requested to be performed in-front of the class. After highschool she moved to Los Angeles where she exercised her comedic skills at The Groundlings and studied theater and film at the University of Southern California's School of Theater USC. Some of her graduating class members include some current rising stars, Deborah Ann Woll from "True Blood, "Erica Dasher from "Jane By Design," and funny men Beck Bennett and Kyle Mooney from "Saturday Night Live."

From her senior showcase she met with NBC and starting working at Universal Studios in live stageshows doing comedy, dancing and stunts with Chelsey Crisp from "Fresh Off The Boat". The physicality took her to perform in Singapore as Betty Boop and to train with clowns and acrobats for Cirque Du Soliel! Although she loved silk acrobatics, dancing, and stunts, she loved making people smile and continued studying comedy. She currently studies comedy at UCB (Upright Citizen's Brigade) and makes shorts and comedy videos with her group "Nightpantz". Follow us on youtube and Funny or Die
