Identified as a rising star by the Boston Globe, Amy Tee is one of the busiest comedians on the New England scene. Her surprising observations and illuminating presence have scored points with mainstream and alternative audiences from Los Angeles to Provincetown, whether she’s performing in world famous comedy clubs, theaters, or lesser-known holes in the wall. Her takes on life as a “lesbian in the mainstream” are delivered with a quiet style that belies its edgy content, leading the audience to laughter and nods of agreement. Amy is a regular performer at the Boston Comedy Festival, and audio clips of her performances there have been played on XM Satellite Radio. In 2007, Amy headlined her own show “Tee’Zing her way to the Top” in Provincetown, and was the co-headliner in “Two Dyke Minimum,” a standup tour that played in clubs and theaters in six northeast states. She currently stars in the film “Laughing Matters… Next Gen” airing on LOGO.
