Just a few days before the program airs, here’s all you need to know about comedian Amber Ruffin, who will be starring on Celebrity Family Feud.
The Celebrity Family Feud competitor gets her own Peacock program.
The comic, who is due to appear on Steve Harvey’s Celebrity Family Feud, executive produces and acts in her own program, The Amber Ruffin Show. The show will be broadcast on Peacock in September 2020. Her program is refreshingly different from other late-night shows in that it focuses on topical skits rather than guests. Aside from that, Amber has remained a writer and performer on Seth Meyers’ late-night talk program, Late Night with Seth Meyers, since the show’s inception in 2014. The Celebrity Family Feud participant is also the first female writer for a late-night talk program.
Amber Ruffin has written and acted in a number of productions.
Amber has appeared as a writer and performer in a number of other projects, including Drunk History, Key and Peele, King of Kong: A Musical Parody, and Stevie TV, in addition to Seth Meyers’ show. King Kong: A Musical Parody, the comedian’s show, also won Best Overall Musical at the 2014 New York International Fringe Festival.
That isn’t everything. Amber has also written and performed at Second City Denver Mainstage and Second City Chicago Mainstage. According to All American Speakers, the comic also completed two tours in Amsterdam for Boom Chicago. She is also a co-writer for the upcoming Broadway musical Some Like It Hot.
Amber and her sister Lacey have collaborated on a book.
Amber and her sister Lacey co-wrote You’ll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey: Crazy Stories About Racism in January 2021. It was listed as a New York Times Best Seller. Amber just announced that her latest book, The World Record Book of Racist Stories, would be published in November 2022. Amber has been nominated for many awards. She was nominated for a Writers Guild of America award in 2017 for ‘The comedy/Variety (Including Talk) Series.’ She was nominated for the Comedy/Variety Sketch series in 2021.
