More of Amy Borkowsky's Hilarious Answering Machine Messages From Her Mother


Last February we posted a story and video about Amy Borkowsky and the answering machine messages from her mother that she turned into an iPhone application called Amy's Mom.

This week we found a larger collection of these saved messages with Amy's comments on them. Some are very funny and are bound to make you chuckle, if not laugh aloud.

Amy got her first clue that the messages which drove her crazy could be entertaining to others in her early days on New York's stand-up comedy circuit. After gathering some of her mother's most extreme messages, she played them on stage at Manhattan's top comedy clubs, and audiences consistently howled. 

The daughter who Mom nicknamed “Amila” (AY-muh-luh) stepped into the national spotlight when she appeared on the “Today” show with Matt Lauer and on National Public Radio's “Morning Edition” to introduce the first volume of her “Amy's Answering Machine: Messages from Mom” comedy CDs. Since then, she has produced a second CD, a two-volume CD set, and downloads from iTunes. They're all available from her web site.

Enjoy!
