Amanda Costner

Stand-up Musings of an “LGBT-Redneck”

Amanda Costner is a solo comedic musician who hails from Oklahoma and bases out of the Twin Cities. Amanda has performed at Second City, Brave New Workshop, Looney Bin Comedy Club and bars & theaters throughout the midwest. Her comedic songs range from acoustic pop ballads about being a gay preacher’s daughter, to soul-comedy pieces on the war of sexual frustration. Pulling her electric guitar out to showcase jazzy humorous tunes & bluesy songs about being poor, Amanda takes listeners on a laughter-filled ride of eclectic music stylings. Between songs, fans get a chance to listen to original improvised music comedy during audience participation sketches. And each performance is loaded with the biographical, stand-up musings of an “LGBT-Redneck”. Amanda’s debut EP,  LGBT Redneck, was released in April of 2017.



 “Amanda is hilarious. She tells it like it is, performing comedy that speaks truth to political woes, personal relationships, and experiences to which we can all relate. Her powerful voice, skilled guitar accompaniment, and unapologetic humor combine to create pointed yet approachable performances that never fail to have us gut laughing.
