Alysia hails from Los Angeles. Born of parents who met at an acting class, it was no wonder that she would have the gift. Some of those gifts are acting, singing, writing (poetry and screenwriting), stand up comedy, directing, and producing. She’s had a career in Film and TV including credits like: Desperate House Wives, a reoccurring role on Everybody Hates Chris, Scrubs, NYPD Blue, and The Shield, just to name a few. Four years ago, she got a deep passion for all things more true and cultural. That’s what brought her to NY and she has been on her grind ever since. She, now, reigns as the Two Time Manhattan Monologue Slam Champion. Alysia just finished an amazing stage production of “Who Is A Virtuous Woman”, directed by the fabulous Wendy McKenzie and just landed a role in the 20th Century Fox Film, The Sitter. And is, currently, working on a One Woman Show. Enjoy the wonder that is Alysia Joy Powell.
