Amy Barnes started her stand-up career in Seattle, Washington.  In her spare time she appeared at comedy clubs around town while working days as an engineer in aerospace.  She quickly gained a reputation as a rising star in the comedy world, so she packed her bags and moved to Hollywood. From there it was on to Comedy Central followed by a recurring role on the National Lampoon network. She quickly found her niche as a writer and began penning material for others.  Amy has written for Bonnie Hunt, Jack Black, and Morgan Freeman among others. 

Married since 2002 to Jerry Miner, a sit-com writer and comedian himself, Amy frequently tours with her husband as Barnes & Miner.  They recently relocated from Los Angeles to Seattle so their two children and their children's grandparents can carry on their love affair uninterrupted.
