Alysia Wood is one of the bright new faces to come out of the strong Seattle comedy scene.
She jokes about so many “issues” that a therapist once handed her a business card during one of her shows. The Bob and Tom show called her material, “well-written… well-structured.” National Lampoon Comedy Radio called her, “Hysterical!”
Budd Friedman, legendary founder of the Improv chain, hosted a comedy competition at The Improv at Harrah’s in Las Vegas. Wood won the competition which caught the attention of Grammy award-winning producer, Dan Schlissel of Stand Up! Records, who then offered her a recording contract.
Her debut CD, Princess, was well received. Virgin Airlines selected it for in-flight entertainment and the Serious Comedy Site named it one of 2012’s “Top 10 Stand-up Comedy MP3 albums and CDs”.
Wood is also a contributing writer for internet columns and frequent guest on many podcasts. She was a panelist on Niecy Nash’s Yahoo series, “Let’s Talk About Love.” Keep an eye out for her in the documentary, “I Am Road Comic“.
