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 of 2009 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 Punchline Magazine original series, “Backporch Wisdom”.
