Amber Nash, actor and improviser who is most known for her role as Pam Poovy on the hit animated series Archer on the FX Network, is the latest guest to be announced for London Ontario’s Forest City Comicon featuring Project Play coming to the London Convention Centre September 23, 2017. Her role as the boozing, gossiping and promiscuous head of Human Resources for ISIS (International Secret Intelligence Service) on the series is a stand-out and fan favorite where she works regularly with such recognized, and acclaimed, co-stars such as Judy Greer, Aisha Tyler, Chris Parnell, Jessica Walters and H. Jon Benjamin.
Nash got her start doing animated voice work on the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim TV Series Frisky Dingo (where she voiced the roles of ‘Val,’ ‘Hooker,’ and various others). Producers and writers Adam Reed and Matt Thompson gave Nash her voice career start and have continued to be friends and mentors to this day. Her work on Frisky Dingo led to Nash being cast as the series regular role of Pam on FX’s Archer. Nash was honored when asked to voice a character in the 100th episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force voicing the role of Tabitha.
In addition to her voice career, Nash regularly tours the U.S., Canada and Europe improvising, studying and teaching. She has worked with Second City performing at the Alliance Theatre and on Norwegian Cruise Lines. She is a regular in online sketches for Dad’s Garage TV and a founding member of the podcasts Dad’s Garage Radio and The Laughing Skull Lounge Podcast. Nash has extensive stage experience, having performed in BRAWL, an improvised wrestling show, Clash Titan Clash!, Drove, Fingertips, Invasion: Our Town and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
Through her work on Archer, Nash has been to Comic Con multiple times and loved every minute of it. She has done panels with the entire cast of Archer where she feels everyone is truly kind and amazing and they all have great time together. In addition to Comic Con, Nash has done a panel at the Paley Center in New York City, participated in the FX up-fronts and the Television Critics Association (TCA) panel in LA. Nash has also participated in a few local panels such as Momocon, a small Atlanta con, and also Dragon con.
In between seasons on Archer, Nash continues to perform in live productions, traveling, doing panels and appearances, and tweets, in character, as ‘Pam’ from Archer at @pamsgossiptrain.
