Amber Nash is an actor and improviser who is most known for her role as ‘Pam Poovy’ on the hit animated series Archer on FX. 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.
A native of Atlanta, GA, Nash graduated from Georgia State University with a B.S. in Psychology. After graduating, she worked for a few years at an outdoor therapeutic program, living with teenagers with emotional and behavioral challenges. It was during this time that she first started taking improv classes and began performing regularly at Dad’s Garage Theatre Company where she performs, directs and teaches to this day. She is also a member of Laughing Matters and performs on stage in Atlanta year round and has worked with Push Push Theatre and The Center for Puppetry Arts. Nash also was involved with the world-renowned Improv groups Improv Olympic (iO) and Second City in Chicago.
Nash got her start doing animated voice work on 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.
