The Amazing Amy

The Amazing Amy

Using humor and a love of fantasy, "The Amazing" Amy Harlib connects with audiences through performing strenuous yoga-based contortion acts in New York City. But behind the showmanship lives an incredibly lonely human being, who despite a disintegrated disc in her spine, two torn rotator cuffs, a hip replacement, and bursitis in her left knee, does everything she can to be loved by her audience.
