Pictures of The Amanda Show Courtney - stargate-rasa.info

In spite of being designed as a sketch comedy television program, the series is set in a fictional universe in which it is broadcast as a popular television comedy (a show-within-a-show), as evidenced through staged mishaps involving members of the studio audience, as well as comedic sub-plots involving Amanda's unhealthily obsessed, nerdy, self-proclaimed "Number One Fan" Penelope Taynt, who constantly devises schemes to achieve her lifelong goal of meeting Amanda (as a gag, Bynes herself portrays Penelope, and therefore Penelope never end up meeting her idol onscreen, although Penelope still meets everyone else in The Amanda Show). These failed schemes include Penelope's attempts at outsmarting the fictional security guard of the studio where The Amanda Show is filmed and at manipulating Amanda's castmates into helping her carry out her plans.
