About Me

Amanda grew up in that exotic place over the bridge and through the tunnel called New Jersey. After failing at sports, she found her way into the ensemble of a community theatre production of Annie Get Your Gun at age 5 and never looked back. Since then she has walked the boards all over the USA and internationally.

She might be famous in Asia. 

These days Amanda spends her time teaching, writing, and appearing as the woman you think you know on the small screen. She lives with her wife, one fearless toddler, and several plants in NYC. 

She enjoys Italian food, travel deals, and RuPaul's Drag Race

LATEST

Look for me on the current seasons of FBI (CBS) and Manifest (NBC) and recent seasons of Orange is the New Black (Netflix) and Younger (TV Land).

 

My OG character Connie "Big Ballz" Bumbaloni is having a busy year! She recently went viral on TikTok

and was featured on both NY1 and and NJ radio station 94.3 The Point

Merch coming soon! 

Anyone else pick up a weird hobby during quarantine? I did. I started out making sourdough starters and ended up doing dramatic readings of the Vermont Country Store Catalogue

Then I dusted off my Trapper Keeper at Heidelberg University, where I taught Intro to Acting and directed a production of Puffs

 
 
 

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“Amanda Bruton nearly steals the whole show as Grandma, played like a salty, funky, ancient hippie just old enough to not care what comes out of her mouth.  Sharp and Bruton easily score the biggest and longest laughs of the evening.”
