Amy Martin

Contributing Comedy and Circus Writer

published Friday, January 27, 2012

Amy Martin stayed up late to watch Johnny Carson as a child and has been a comedy addict ever since, living proof that an hour-a-day minimum dose of comedy keeps you sort of sane. She included comedy as part of her beat at the Dallas Observer, where she originated the music coverage. At the Dallas Times Herald she made her mark as a comedy critic and eclectic arts reviewer, and was the first journalist outside of Houston to cover legendary comedian Bill Hicks.

A journalist with a yen for variety, Martin has done environmental journalism at The Dallas Morning News and national magazine Garbage, served as commentator and substitute talk-show host at KERA, and now writes weekly for The Dallas Morning News interfaith blog Texas Faith.

Regarded by many as the "Moonlady," ( Martin operates a 3200+ member online news service and website for North Texas called Moonlady News, covering non-mainstream spirituality, holistic, nature and progressive communities. As executive director of Earth Rhythms, Martin presented seasonal events for 20 years, including Winter SolstiCelebration, along with concerts by national spiritual musicians such as Deval Premal and R Carlos Nakai. Thanks For Reading
