Amanda is the creator of the original sketch character
Connie"Big Ballz" Bumbaloni, a no nonsense Jersey housewife with a whole lot to say. Whether it's holiday etiquette, recipe tips, or politics, Connie tells like it is with hilarious honesty and authenticity.
You can find Connie on TikTok and on YouTube in Confessions by Connie, Connie in Quarantine, and Questions with Connie. Confessions by Connie was an Official Selection of the NYC Indie Film Festival for which Amanda also received a Best Actress Nomination.
Vermont Country Store
One night during quarantine, Amanda began doing dramatic readings of customer testimonials from the Vermont Country Store catalogue. Her wife begged her to shut up. So she did what any actor would do and took to social!
The series currently lives on Instagram and is shared in an evening story time format. Milk and cookies not included.
After sold out runs of her shows, UnCastable and Still UnCastable, Amanda brought Still UnCastable to the Laurie Beechman Theatre in June 2019. The show explores the concept of uncastability in the entertainment industry and in life. Through personal anecdotes, parody, sketch comedy, and song, Still UnCastable comments on Hollywood and society at large in the era of #timesup and sounds the call for women to own their power and embrace their uncastability.
Nevertheless, She Auditioned
Amanda recently wrote/produced/directed the comedic short Nevertheless, She Auditioned, which premiered at HBO's Women in Comedy Festival. The film is inspired by true stories of women facing gender inequality in the audition room. Nevertheless, She Auditioned has gone on to win Best Ensemble at the Atlanta Comedy Film Festival and Best Editing at the Austin Comedy Film Festival. The film is continuing on the festival circuit and will be coming soon to a computer screen near you.
