- Borkowsky, a former advertising executive-turned comedian
- The ultimate Jewish mother’s dire warnings about everything from gum disease to red bathrobes to raw fish
Amy Borkowsky has been saving her answering machine messages for over a decade.
She first realized that the messages which drive her crazy could be entertaining to others when she began performing stand-up comedy.
On the assumption that the best material comes from your own life, she gathered some of her mother’s most extreme messages and played them on stage, at venues including top comedy clubs.
Audiences consistently howled at her messages from Mom. Amy says she’s totally dependent on her answering machine since she’s virtually never home.
Until launching her full-time comedy career, Amy lived the hectic life of an Executive Vice President and Creative Group Head at a major advertising agency, where she won dozens of awards including five Clios, three Cannes Festival lions, and an Emmy.
Amy now devotes herself exclusively to performing, speaking, and developing new comedy projects.
Her television appearances include an interview with Matt Lauer on NBC’s “Today” show and with Jane Clayson on the CBS “Early Show”; Amy has also appeared on MSNBC, “Lifetime Live,” “Pure Oxygen,” “Fox News Live,” the “WB Morning Show;” “National Enquirer TV” profiled her as “the comedian who’s making a career out of listening to her mother.”
Amy’s first CD has been played on hundreds of radio stations across the country, from New York’s WPLJ to KRLA in LA and National Public Radio, appearing on shows from “Good Day Dallas” to “Today in New York”
Amy continues to tour the country for comedy and speaking engagements and performed this year at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal.
“Amy was born single in New York City and has pretty much remained that way, much to the dismay of her mother who once left her daughter a string of phone messages begging her to submit photos to millionaire bachelors from a talk show, eventually mailing in Amy’s naked baby photos herself.”
