Combining energetic storytelling, observations, and fun crowd interaction, Cy Amundson is a brand of stand-up comedy all his own. Growing up one of 9 children in rural Minnesota, Cy's Dad's strict television rules left him with few evening options other than Nick At Night. It was among the countless hours with Dick Van Dyke, Mary Tyler Moore, and Lucille Ball that Cy began to fall in love with comedy. In his early 20's, he moved to Minneapolis to cut his teeth at one of the most reputable comedy clubs in the country - ACME Comedy Company.
With performances at the Just For Laughs Festival and a finalist in The Great American Comedy Festival, in Johnny Carson's home town, Cy Amundson received national recognition and has since been on multiple TV appearances, including: Comedy Central, Conan, MTV, CMT, FOX, and believe it or not... Nick At Night's own comedy show, Mom's Night Out!
Cy uses his uncanny penchant for joke writing, coupled with his affable stage persona to individualize a performance that his audience won't soon forget, and that would make his comedy heroes proud.

Cy is hilarious! He has always delivered great performances in front of our customers! He adapts so well to the room and the audience - all of us feel we're part of something special.
-Fun Is Good
We were thrilled to have Cy entertain our company meeting of 750 attendees. They had a blast and we laughed over his jokes for weeks after around the water cooler. He was easy to work with, professional and listened to our content concerns while delivering a fantastic show. Highly recommend! We'll be hiring him again!
We had Cy perform at the fundraiser for our town festival days. Not only was the show incredible, but Cy was kind, easy to work with, and stayed around for hours afterward meeting and interacting with everyone involved. In the audience, we had people as young as 14 and as old as 80 - and all left with a smile.
-King Turkey Day Festival
After years of in-house games and contests, we decided to shake things up a bit this year for our holiday party and hire a comedian. Any initial concerns or hesitation about the idea quickly became a distant memory. Cy listened to all of our concerns. He was clean, office appropriate, and most importantly - very funny. Such a great experience. It has already been decided that he will be back next year!
