Comedian Amber Preston will play the Sanctuary Events Center in Fargo on Wednesday, November 23, 2022. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 19th.
From 15 years of stand-up experience to national commercials for Buffalo Wild Wings, Comcast and pretty much every Midwest insurance company imaginable, actor/comic/producer Amber Preston is as mischievously charismatic onstage as she is onscreen. Originally from Fargo, N.D., Preston earned her Theater Arts degree from the University of Minnesota.
Along with musical theater, short films, and improv classes at UCB, she credits roadwork at VFWs and hole-in-the-wall sports bars for enabling her to connect with any audience regardless of age or sobriety level. These days her resume boasts performances at San Francisco’s Sketchfest, the Boston Comedy Festival, the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival and Portland’s Bridgetown Comedy Festival. She’s even placed third at the Great American Comedy Festival and won Best of the Midwest at Gilda’s LaughFest.
Now calling Los Angeles home, Preston hosts and produces two live shows offering unique spins on standard stand-up. In 2020 Preston released her debut album with Stand Up! Records. Building on her natural instinct for engaging improvisation, “Sparkly Parts’” saucy skewering of Midwestern charm belies a knack for wringing deceptively blue material from her Red State upbringing. From grandmothers to hardcore comedy geeks, Preston makes it her personal mission to leave diverse audiences wanting more.
Getting strangers to laugh is one thing. Challenging preconceived notions is even better. But it’s when new fans want to hang out for beers afterward – and bring their friends along to her next show – that Preston knows she’s created a truly memorable comedy experience.
