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.
