Cy Amundson has quickly established himself as one of the nation’s fastest rising stand-up comedians. He was a standout performer as a New Face at last summer's Montreal Just For Laughs Festival and recently made his television debut on Conan.
Named CMT's Next Big Comic for 2011, Cy has been on the Bob and Tom Show and has performed in the Aspen Comedy Festival, Seattle International Comedy Competition, and the Great American Comedy Festival in Johnny Carson’s home town of Norfolk, NE.
Cy combines high-energy storytelling with hilarious observations and effectively manages to challenge the audience while remaining delightfully and positively relatable. Some of his favorite things include Larry Bird, pancakes, and anything Teen Wolf related. If you are a fan of these things too...or just want to experience the undeniable electricity he brings to the stage, you best get to a show.
I Kevin Christy was born and raised in Los Angeles CA. I have performed all over the country for very little money. You may have seen me on such shows as Mad Men, How I met you mother, Grey's Anatomy, Malcolm in the Middle C.S.I, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Bones, as well as other television shows whose names have been forgotten due to low quality. Amongst my friends and family I am know as being emotionally distant but extremely punctual.
Originally from Northeast Pennsylvania, I am now a writer and performer in LA. Standup is my favorite. I’ve been to a few festivals, won a few competitions and been on TV a few times. (Last Comic Standing, The Rotten Tomatoes Show, Fuel TV)
I’ve also traveled the world twice by ship and am embarrassingly good at devilsticks, thanks to a belief in high school that juggling would make me cool. Spoiler alert, it did.
