She would love to open or feature on your show and promises not to refer to herself in the 3rd person when speaking IRL.
Amanda Kruel feels uncomfortable, and she'll help you feel uncomfortable too.
From cheesy to obscure to dark, her comedy tackles current events, family dynamics, romance, and mental illness. She folds in personal stories and shamelessly peppers wordplay throughout.
In her 4 years performing, Amanda Kruel has shared the stage with comedians featured on Amazon, Netflix, and Saturday Night Live. She regularly tours the southeast in addition to hosting and producing shows in east Tennessee where she lives.
