Amy first showed up in the short movie Sense Memory (2006).
Her next role was in the comedy movie Sleepwalk with Me (2012) when she acted as Amy. It was uncredited.
First TV Show
Amy’s first official TV appearance was in the stand-up comedy television show Live at Gotham in 2007 when she acted as herself in episode 2.6.
However, there’s a huge transformation going on in Amy’s body (as she has gained little bit weight), so we can definitely say that her passion for exercising has maybe disappeared. Obviously keeping her body in shape is not Amy’s primarily goal anymore.
