Amanda Monroe

Booking / Enquiry

Amanda is the glamour girl with the mischievous smile and plays just as dumb as she can get away with.

Amanda started her showbiz career carrying roadcases for a rock 'n' roll band, but soon left backstage for front stage when she was lured onto stage in 1999. Then it was a rollercoaster ride with co-founder Jessica James as they took their group 'Showbags' to the top of the drag world in Melbourne.

Along the way Amanda landed rolls in 'Kath and Kim' (Amanda was the drag queen that hoists Kath on her shoulders in the Hen's party episode) and roles as the walk on 'tranny' in shows like 'Secret Life of Us' and 'Stingers'. Amanda was approached by the producers of 'Strange Bedfellows' to appear with Paul Hogan and shared the screen with Rob Carlton ('Underbelly').

Another video moment was in the ARIA Award winning film clip of 'Do It With Madonna' as 'Britney's Mom'.

Like many fine film roles Amanda's mostly landed on the cutting room floor. Never mind, it gave Amanda one of the funniest and most enjoyable times of her career, especially a few years later when she caught the film playing on US Television after one of her New York shows. "I felt quite international at that moment' she says.

Since then Amanda has toured with Drags Aloud and has collected more and more of those type of experiences, including a string of fateful meetings with a legend of Show Business, Joan Rivers, culminating in working with her in Australia.
