SANDY EHLERS (Feature)
Sandy Ehlers was born and raised in Hoboken, New Jersey. A twelve-year comedy veteran, Sandy has performed stand-up at many of New York City's major clubs, such as Gotham Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, and The Comic Strip. Sandy's comedy journey began with an appearance on ABC’s The View with Joy Behar in 2003. She has studied Improv at Upright Citizens Brigade in NYC. Sandy has been a contestant in the Cape May Comedy Festival, in which she was a top ten finalist out of 100 comedians and the only female selected as a finalist. Sandy has also been a contestant of the Ladies of Laughter competition at the Gotham Comedy Club this past July 2014. Her comedy is eclectic, funny and eccentric. She's a combination of Joy Behar, Roseanne Barr, and Joan Rivers all rolled up into one. One of the funniest but on-target critiques she's ever gotten was someone telling her she sounded like a female Frank Sinatra when she spoke with her Hoboken accent and her strong conviction of her thoughts and stories, as she takes no prisoners and tells it like it is “her way."
