Smart Funny & Black

Amanda Seales
Amanda Seales
Comedian, actress, content creator, and more, Amanda Seales doesn’t just make you laugh, she makes change!

With an uncanny knack for taking serious topics (racism, rape culture, sexism, police brutality, etc.) and with humor, making them relatable and interesting, she combines intellectual wit, irreverent silliness and a pop culture obsession to create her unique style of smart funny content for the stage and screens.

Along with performing stand up across the globe, and touring colleges doing comedic lectures on everything from sexism and diversity, to black popular culture, this former MTV VJ with a master’s in African American studies from Columbia University is a series regular as Tiffany on HBO’s “Insecure”, spokesperson for anti tobacco advocates TheTruth.com, host of FOX’s “Empire” Aftershow, named by Time Out LA as one of 2017’s comedians to watch, is creator/host of LA’s hit comedy game show “Smart Funny & Black” at Nerdmelt, and went viral after articulately and passionately confronting Caitlin Jenner on issues of race and equality in America, during a live streamed dinner, hosted by Katy Perry, on Youtube. She has created/written/produced/and starred in several digital series for major platforms (AOL, BET, SheKnows.com, Elle.com) including two seasons of her scripted comedy, Get Your Life available on www.Blavity.com.

With a strong social media presence, even stronger points of view, and a patronus that’s a Black Panther with wings, Amanda Seales continues to keep audiences laughing and thinking!
