'''Amanda [=MacKinnon=] [[Creator/NeilGaiman Gaiman]] Palmer''' (also known as "Amanda [[MetaphorIsMyMiddleName Fucking]] Palmer", born April 30, 1976) is a singer, songwriter, pianist, former LivingStatue, and ukulele player. Before her music career, Palmer worked for years as a living statue called "The Eight Foot Bride". She then co-founded the "[[Creator/BertoltBrecht Brechtian]] punk cabaret" band (a term originally coined by her friends TheTigerLillies) The Dresden Dolls, along with drummer Brian Viglione. They released three studio albums: their self-titled debut album was followed by the releases ''Yes, Virginia'' in 2006 and ''No, Virginia'' in 2008. The band went on hiatus in 2008, the same year Amanda released her solo album ''Who Killed Amanda Palmer''. Although they've done shows together since then, the band stays officially broken up.

In 2014 Amanda released a book called [[Literature/TheArtOfAsking ''The Art of Asking'']], which is part-memoir, part philosophy, and an expansion of her TED talk. In late February 2015 she teased a "big announcement" on Twitter, which many fans thought would be saying she was pregnant, but turned out to be a new crowdfunding project on Patreon. Then on March 18 2015, she revealed that she actually ''is'' pregnant, with a due date in September. In July, she and Neil revealed that the baby is a boy. On September 16, she gave birth to their son, Anthony(named after her recently deceased best friend).
