AMY CUNNINGHAM

OPENING ACT

 

Amy Cunningham is a comedian and storyteller. She wrote and performed her one person show, (here we don’t limit our repression to just our sexuality), as part of the 2015 FRIGID Festival in New York City and was a performer at Toronto’s enormously popular SheDot Festival. Her live stories have been featured on CBC’s Live Through This with Andrew Kauffman and the Raconteurs Podcast. Amy’s play, buffering…, presented at the 2012 Toronto Fringe, was lauded as “whip smart” (Torontoist) and a “deft, timely comedy that doesn’t dumb itself down” (Mooney on Theatre). But she is perhaps best known for her ability to spend a solid ten minutes unravelling a reluctant explanation of that time she got a boot stuck to her foot.
