Comedian, actress, writer, producer and more, Amanda Seales doesn’t just make you laugh, she makes change!
Amanda has an uncanny knack for taking serious topics (racism, rape culture, sexism, police brutality) and making them relatable and interesting through humor. She combines intellectual wit, irreverent silliness and a pop culture obsession to create her unique style of smart funny content for the stage and screens.
Along with performing stand up across the globe, Amanda tours colleges doing comedic lectures on everything from sexism and diversity, relationships to black popular culture.
The former MTV VJ with a master’s in African American studies from Columbia University is a series regular as Tiffany on HBO’s Insecure. In 2017, she was named one of Time Out LA’s Comedians to Watch. In addition, Amanda is creator/host of LA’s hit comedy game show, Smart Funny & Black, at Nerdmelt. She has also written/produced/starred in two seasons of her scripted comedy, Get Your Life, available on Blavity.
Amanda speaks truth to change via her wildly popular Instagram and monthly column “Amandaland” at InStyle Mag. She recently went viral after articulately and passionately confronting Caitlyn Jenner on issues of race and equality in America during a livestreamed dinner hosted by Katy Perry on YouTube.
A Jedi Khaleesi with a Patronus that’s a Black Panther with wings, Amanda Seales continues to keep audiences laughing, thinking, and living in their truth!
