Amy Cunningham is a Toronto-based, plant-based comedian, writer and storyteller who performs stand-up internationally. Her dark and deadpan comedy has been featured at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Oddblock Comedy Festival, SheDot Festival and others. She co-wrote and acted in the award-winning series, Off Kilter, which was called "a refreshing surprise" by The New York Times, and is available to stream on the CBC’s digital platform.
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.
