With energetic storytelling, observations, and fun crowd interaction, Cy Amundson’s brand of stand-up comedy is all his own. Growing up one of nine children in rural Minnesota, Cy’s Dad’s strict television rules left him with few evening options other than Nick At Night. It was among the countless hours with Dick Van Dyke, Mary Tyler Moore, and Lucille Ball that Cy began to fall in love with comedy. In his early 20’s, he moved to Minneapolis to cut his teeth at one of the most reputable comedy clubs in the country – ACME Comedy Company.

With performances at the Just For Laughs Festival and a finalist in The Great American Comedy Festival, in Johnny Carson's home town, Cy Amundson received national recognition and has since been on multiple TV appearances, including: Comedy Central, Conan, MTV, CMT, FOX, and, ironically, Nick At Night's own comedy show, Mom's Night Out!
