Engineer turned comedienne, Amy Barnes, started her stand-up career in Seattle, appearing at comedy clubs around town while working days as an engineer in aerospace. It wasn’t long before she had to choose between the two career paths and, in a striking blow to the Girls In STEM Movement, she chose comedy.
After moving to Los Angeles, she began working as a comedy writer, writing for dozens of comedians and actors including Nancy Travis, Bonnie Hunt, Jack Black, and Morgan Freeman. She has appeared on Comedy Central and the National Lampoon Network. Amy is now a nationally touring act with over 60 dates a year and frequently appears to capacity crowds at theaters, churches, and conference events.
Married since 2002 to comedian and writer, Jerry Miner, Amy now resides in the Pacific Northwest with their 2 kids where she has accumulated some even bigger credits including dance mom, YMCA member, and PTA President.
