I had the distinct pleasure of being recognized in Zach Broussard’s Top 1,000 Comedians of 2017 and 2018! What an honor to be counted among so many talented artists on this illustrious list.

Review for ‘The Humor Mill Orlando Presents… Hysteria Repeats Itself!’

May 6, 2012, The Orlando Sentinel

“Amanda Stafford and Kristin Schaare presented stand-out musical and acting performances during Tea Party and protester parodies. Stafford’s impressive, operatic pipes reached high octaves during show numbers. The other cast members weren’t as strong vocally but redeemed themselves in their acting roles.”
“…one of the Tea Party skits was hilarious in portraying members who drank a special Kool-Aid that brainwashed them into joining the cause.”

-Sandra Carr, Orlando Sentinel correspondent

Review for ‘Dead Man’s Cell Phone’

Sep 29, 2010, The Orlando Sentinel

“Stafford, as the overbearing mom, is funnier the meaner she gets. When an errant cell phone goes off at her son’s funeral, she snaps about there being only three places left where cell phones are forbidden: the theater, church and the toilet. When she mentions that some are even starting to talk while using the toilet, the audience laughs nervously, and dare I say, knowingly.”

-Matthew J. Palm, Orlando Sentinel Theater Critic
