“Our relationship is similar age as Lourdes Ciccone, and like Lourdes, we consider ourselves as ‘Madonna’s daughters,'” she wrote.
The pair really met for the primary time at Chicago’s ImprovOlympic when its proprietor, Charna Halpern, observed how comparable the performers had been.
“Charna took a liking to me, and me to her. She advised me I used to be simply nearly as good as the massive boys. She believed in me,” Amy wrote in Sure Please. “She mentioned there was one other new improviser in one other considered one of her lessons whom she thought I would like. Her identify was Tina and he or she was like me however with brown hair.”
