Big D, Big Joe, Double D, Wonderboy & Squeeze make up the cast on NWCZ, bringing you their take on the news, sports, music and anything else they find interesting – all brought to you with their unique Northwest perspective.

Alysia takes a break after winning “America’s Next Funniest” to talk with the boys in the man cave about:

  • Growing up growing up dirt poor in Bellevue
  • [Clip] Being an abortionist’s daughter in Louisiana’s private Christian schools shortly after integration and the transition from Louisiana’s public schools (2nd worst in the US) to Washington’s (2nd best)
  • Getting a “late start” in comedy at 21 years old, her first time on stage and how it changed her path in life
  • The turf war between the Comedy Underground and Giggles Comedy Club and how being an emcee at the Comedy Underground gave her a head start
  • How comedy took her from Seattle to New Jersey [clip] then Kentucky and eventually Los Angeles
  • Performing in the college market for audiences that are more educated than she is
  • How she ended up on Last Comic Standing and what a celebrity judge told her the year she didn’t make the cut
  • Why losing is great and the whirlwind story of winning “America’s Next Funniest” (and being out of her mind, live on the Vegas news)
  • The crew asks her to explain the “Bio-Terrorism Training” credit on her resume
  • Being a guest columnist on
  • Lastly, she answers the podcast’s famous big ten questions (favorite food, first car [clip], first paid job, favorite sports team, favorite tool, first CD or album purchased, favorite TV show, last movie watched [clip], last concert attended, favorite drink, favorite place in the northwest)
