Amanda Seales is a Los Angeles-based comedian and actress whose many talents have made her a fixture in the entertainment industry for more than 20 years. She’s brought to life such memorable characters as Dionne on My Brother And Me and Tiffany, Issa’s bestie on HBO’s ongoing Insecure; in 2019, she debuted her first stand-up special, I Be Knowin (also on HBO); and as a host, she’s sold out her cross-country, 23-stop tour of Smart Funny & Black, a music- and laugh-filled game show that is equal parts black Jeopardy and black barbecue. Seales is also turning her weekly self-help podcast, Small Doses, into a book, to be released fall 2019. [Photo: Maggie Shannon]
