"One of the funniest ladies in show business!!!"

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

Her CD, Princess, was released by Grammy award-winning producer, Dan Schlissel. She joins an impressive list of artists recorded by Stand Up! Records (including Lewis Black, David Cross, Patton Oswalt, Marc Maron).

The Louisiana native has settled in Los Angeles where she caught the attention of the legendary founder of the Improv chain, Budd Friedman. He bestowed the title of “America’s Next Funniest” comedian upon her at Harrah’s Improv in Las Vegas in 2010. The competition was sponsored by the DVD release of the movie, “Funny People”, and ijoke.com. In addition, Alysia was a finalist in many more competitions, including the California’s Funniest Female Competition.

She was also selected as a Hot Comedian by Campus Activities Magazine. College audiences agree, “Wood can turn almost anything into a joke.”

National Lampoon Comedy Radio on XM calls her “Hysterical!” and constantly airs her sound bites. She appears on the prestigious, nationally-syndicated show “Bob & Tom“, where her material has been complimented as “well-written… well-structured.”

She is also a contributing writer for internet columns and a frequent guest on many podcasts.

As an actress, she is currently playing “the wife” on a Laugh Spin (formerly Punchline Magazine) original series, “Back Porch Wisdom”. She also plays Brett’s Mom in the upcoming movie, “Dangerous”.

“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.”
