Actress, Comedianne, Ventriloquist Amanda Jaros


Actress, comedianne and ventriloquist Amanda Jaros sent us this video last week.

Amanda is a native of Chicago, where her early work in theater began. After moving to California, she received her B.A. in Theater Arts from Azusa Pacific University, where she hosted the morning variety show Wake Up with Matt and Amanda! She has studied with the New York Drama Conservatory for the Dramatic Arts, the Groundlings school of improvisation, the Elephant Theater and Lesly Kahn & Co. Amanda’s talent and comedic timing have earned her success in stand-up, improvisational troupes, sitcom pilots, puppetry and ventriloquism.

We thought we would share it with everyone.
