The Amanda Show

The BEST episodes of The Amanda Show

Every episode ever - ranked by fan votes!

"All That" cast member and Nick comedienne extraordinaire Amanda Bynes is the star of her own variety show! "The Amanda Show" is a hilarious blend of outrageous sketch comedy, celebrity guest-stars, cutting-edge animated shorts and live performances from today's hottest music acts. The show's outrageous cast of characters includes a family of professional wrestlers who take their work home with them, a gavel-happy judge out for kid-justice, an old lady with an over-developed derriere, and, of course, Amanda's "overly enthusiastic" #1 fan, Penelope Taynt (who's even built a website devoted to her obsession: amandaplease.com )! Oh, and did we mention the dancing lobsters?
