About

“She’s just funny. She’s clever and cool and very human.”

- The Herald

Alysia Wood is one of the bright new faces to come out of the strong Seattle comedy scene.

National Lampoon Comedy Radio called her, “Hysterical!”  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.”

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, has been 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 upcoming documentary, “I Am Road Comic”

“I love it when Alysia comes back to Seattle–she brings a little edge back to the Kingdom of Polite and always manages to have something surprising and very funny to say.”
