Amber Martin "On Your Table"
Amber Martin is a celebrated NYC Comedian and Vocalist. She was named one of the top performers of 2010 by The New Yorker. Amber's performances include appearing with Joan Rivers on Celebrity Apprentice and opening for Joan's live NYC shows. Amber brought Mayor Bill Di Blasio and the celebrity-filled venue to their feet as her popular character portrayal of Reba. You can hear her belting out featured vocals on The Scissor Sisters/Pharrell single "Inevitable". Martin has performed alongside Kylie Minogue and Jake Shears and was a featured vocalist with Sandra Bernhard at Town Hall in NYC and with Justin Vivian Bond at The Royal Music Hall in San Francisco.
This unique series will present Amber telling her own hilarious and compelling stories, while premiering the brand new songs of award-winning songwriter, Brett Every. Brett has written more than two albums worth of original material just for the belting pipes of Amber Martin! The opportunity to finally perform at Pangea with the original songs of Brett Every, along with his accompaniment, will be a complete thrill for Amber. There will be surprise guests as well!
"...the big, moving Bessie Smith-like sound..." "chill-inducing"
The New Yorker Hilton Als' Best Performers
"Martin's blend of brash (sometimes bizarre) comedy and beautiful music fit perfectly in her tough-yet-sentimental adopted home, New York Cityand has earned her a devoted following."
- Time Out New York
"Her fullness of voice and spot-on characterizations put the show in another dimension."
"... a powerful woman whose heightened sense of the ridiculous goes head to head with her distinctly American voice.
The New Yorker
"The pitch-perfect, multi-talented Martin seamlessly floats between multiple costumes, personae and skits, never once leaving the stage, and carrying the calm of a seasoned performer"
The New York Times
"A chameleonic performer with a mind-blowing voice, Amber Martin dissolves completely into her original characters (and a spot- on Reba McEntire)"
Time Out New York
"I haven't laughed like that in I don't know when. Amber is the real deal, a fucking scream, like I Love Lucy on acid beyond the pale! I think she is brilliant!"
