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. She was a student of Kendall Cornell’s female clown troop and performed for a Cirque de Soleil cast party in NYC at the Brazilian “Club Pacha” in NYC. Sandy studied two years acting with Joanna Beckson Studios in Manhattan and was selected by the late Albert Maysles to be spotlighted in a weight-loss commercial which was directed by his production company.
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.
Sandy does a lot of work for charity organizations and donates her time in comedy performances for projects such as Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center comedy shows once a month, Wounded Warrior Shows twice a year, and Gilda’s Club venues in New York as well as her home state of New Jersey. She believes in giving back and she believes that laughter is the best medicine and she lives it every day of her life.
Most weekends you can find Sandy on the road in the tri-state area performing her stand-up at venues such as Elks Clubs, Country Clubs, Women’s Clubs, VFWs, and all kinds of private functions and organizational parties and events.
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."
"Sandy loves comedy and it shows in her work. Sandy is always having fun. You don't have to laugh at all her jokes, but I'd advise it. After all, she works at a gun club. Know what I mean? Know what I mean ... no really, Know what I mean!"
