Known for her unique mix of everyday observations and off-beat tangents, Yorkshire-born Amy is a multi-award winning comedian, actor and writer brimming with natural warmth and charm.
In 2022 Amy achieved the rare feat of getting 3 Award nominations at the Edinburgh Festival - for two different shows. Her debut Edinburgh solo show 'The Girl Before The Girl You Marry' received a number of 5 star reviews including The Skinny who called her "vivid and hilarious", ITalkTelly who said "astonishingly good...one of the most exciting and vivid new storytellers in comedy" and Funny Women "proper belly laughs...she's a comic of such natural ability that from the first few seconds she has the entire room entranced". This show was nominated for The NextUp 'Biggest Award in Comedy' as well as Dave’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards (the so-called "Oscars of Comedy") ‘Best Newcomer‘. In a Festival first, she also received a second Dave Comedy Award nomination for 'Nowt at Sea', which was performed as part of comedy duo 'The Delightful Sausage' and nominated for Best Show.
In January 2023 'The Girl Before The Girl You Marry' had a week-long sell-out run at London's Soho Theatre, and was subsequently nominated for 'Best Stand-Up Show' at the National Comedy Awards on Channel 4. The show returned to the Soho Theatre later in 2023 and was then followed by a UK Tour.
Also in 2023 she launched podcast 'Northern News' with fellow Hull comedian Ian Smith, who have made it their mission to find the most bizarre & juciest stories from their hometown of Hull and beyond.
Her authentic, comic voice won her the prestigious BBC Caroline Aherne Bursary 2019 which led her to develop her own sitcom. She is one half of comedy duo ‘The Delightful Sausage’ which was nominated for Edinburgh Festival Best Show in 2019. In 2020 they won a Chortle Award for Best Sketch, Character or Improv act. ‘The Delightful Sausage’ have appeared on Harry Hill’s Clubnite for C4 and have also popped up on Sky and More 4, as well as creating online content for BBC3 and C4. They enjoyed a two week run at the Soho Theatre with their critically lauded show, 'Ginster’s Paradise' described as "funny and hilariously sinister" by The Times. In 2021 they took their act to Radio 2 with ‘The Delightful Sausage on: Staycations’.
In 2023 she made a guest appearance in the third series of the BBC hit comedy 'Starstruck', playing midwife Diane as well as in the fourth and final series of 'Sex Education', playing a beautician. In 2022 she appeared as Julie in Channel 4's darkly comic drama 'Somewhere Boy'. In 2021 she appeared in hit new BBC Two comedy 'Alma's Not Normal' which won the BAFTA for 'Best Pilot' in 2020 and has been made into a 6-part series, written by and starring Sophie Willan. Also in 2021 she starred in ‘Flaps’ an all-female sketch show for Comedy Central, featuring some of the UK’s hottest up and coming comedy stars.
Other TV appearances include starring in and writing for CBBC sketch show ‘Big Fat Like’, BBC One drama series ‘Life’, guest panellist on Never Mind the Buzzcocks in 2023, as well as various roles and writing credits for ‘The Emily Atack Show’.

She also had a leading role in Radio 4’s ‘Phil Ellis is Trying’.
