Comedian Amy Miller, an East Bay native, talks about her latest album, ‘California King’

With a new album and as the scheduled headliner at three summer festivals, one could say that things are going well for stand-up comedian Amy Miller. Miller is now a full-timer in the field, a professional at coming up with laugh-out-loud-worthy bits. She appeared on the ninth and final season of NBC reality show “Last Comic Standing” and was one of Comedy Central’s “Up Next” comics. A West Coaster, Miller has spent time in Portland, Oregon, and now calls Los Angeles home, but she originally hails from the East Bay, where she lived in El Sobrante, Richmond and, mostly, Oakland. She’s a veteran performer in Bay Area venues such as Punch Line and Cobb’s Comedy Club in San Francisco and the Alameda Comedy Club. In March 2022, she released her half-hour special “Ham Mouth” on the Comedy Central YouTube channel; a month later, her second album, “California King,” was released.
