Amber was born in England and raised in southern Ontario. She began performing improv then stand-up comedy in her late 20s, in Toronto. She participated in and won the Samsung Galaxy S4 Talent Search, and quickly made a name for herself as one of the funniest up-and-comers in the city. In her third year of performing stand-up, she made the big move out west to Vancouver, where she was invited to become part of the Yuk Yuk's roster, and has firmly established herself as a mainstay in one of the most celebrated comedy cities in North America.
With her fearless crowd work, quick wit and natural charm, Amber is one of the most sought-after hosts and has toured nationally and internationally with her act. Her performing highlights include: Just for Laughs NorthWest (Vancouver), The Comics Lounge (Melbourne, Australia), The Del Close Marathon (NYC), and more recently, YYC Comedy Festival (Calgary), Smash Comedy Fest (Vancouver) and the Tall Tree Festival (Port Renfrew). Amber has had the honor of opening for Canadian comedy legend Mike MacDonald (Just for Laughs) on multiple occasions, as well as Darrin Rose (Match Game, CBC's Mr. D), Brent Weinbach (Comedy Central, Conan) and David Huntsberger (Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central).
In the midst of becoming a headlining club act Amber tours her absurd colorful style of self-deprecating (TMI) material, closing independent shows from coast to coast. Her hilarious and wildly audacious jokes are inspired by her unique and somewhat feral upbringing. She also shares her highly relatable stories on the trials and tribulations of navigating adulthood. But really... her sets can go anywhere! Amber's talent for experimental comedy, combined with her sharp improvisational skills, often have her mixing with the audiences before her, and creating jokes right on the spot, making every performance an original.
