Amy Shanker

Amy Shanker

Growing up with the looks of a prepubescent Latino boy and a family that her friends dubbed “”the Jewish Griswalds,”” Amy Shanker had no choice but to go into standup comedy. As a former inner-city high school teacher, Amy’s dry comedic style and general outlook on life stem from an edgier perspective.

You’ve seen Amy on Fox’s Laughs. She’s opened for Matt Braunger, Gary Gulman, and Ryan Hamilton. Amy is a regular at Chicago’s Laugh Factory and Zanies and performs at clubs across the United States. She placed 1st in Chicago’s Best New Comedian Competition at Jokes and Notes and 2nd in the 2015 Devil Cup Comedy Fest in NYC.
