Frustrated with life never working out, Amber Bixby turned to stand-up comedy.  Her optimistic view  of pessimism and sardonic charm has won over countless audiences and won her a reputation as “Comedy’s Sweetheart of Darkness.”  Bixby has been a rising star in the Austin scene after gaining recognition as a Finalist in the Funniest Person in Austin Contest, and she has since performed at festivals all over America, including Boston’s Women in Comedy Fest, New Orleans’ Hell Yes Fest, and the Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival.  Bixby also writes, acts and directs films and comedy sketches. One of her short films Opciono Dos was recently selected by the Texas Independent Film Festival.
