    Alycia Cooper

    Comedy

    Alycia Cooper was born with a mic in her hand. It was a medical miracle and a

    sign that her mother either had an iron deficiency or desperately wanted Alycia to

    be a performer. The latter was true and it didn’t take long for Alycia’s funny bone

    to take shape. And like every great comedienne, by the age of 5, she had

    perfected knock- knock jokes and imitating drunk family members. This love of

    laughter was Alycia’s beacon to the stage and after graduating college, she

    pursued her destiny and it patiently waited for her.

    She paid her dues and perfected her signature brand of humor in dimly lit

    comedy clubs and crack houses around the country. Crack patrons aren’t very

    attentive and they heckle the hell out of you, but they allowed Alycia to sharpen

    her style into a distinct blend of and homage to her three comedy idols. Alycia’s

    hilarious and unique viewpoint has the razor-sharp satire of Chris Rock, the

    observational arsonist rants of George Carlin and the political and cultural

    clowning of Margaret Cho. This delicious comedy gumbo was Alycia’s entrée into

    the big leagues.

    Her name had become synonymous with laughter and she was asked to be the

    opening act for some of the biggest names in the comedy game: Dick Gregory,

    Whitney Cummins, Paul Mooney, and Felipe Esparza. She also opened for Bob

    Marley, but was devastated to find out that it was the white comedian and not

    the legendary reggae artist. White Marley felt so bad that he used his medical

    marijuana card to buy Alycia a nickel bag of primo Jamaican weed that she quickly

    accepted and later sold to pay her rent.

    Alycia now had momentum and it was leading her full speed ahead to Hollywood.

    This comedy chameleon was quickly cast in popular shows, including “The

    Parkers”, “Raising Hope”, and “Grounded for Life”. She also performed her

    comedy on the national stages of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”, “America’s Got

    Talent”, “Stand Up In Stilettos” BET’s “Comic View”, “Tru Tv’s “Laff Tracks”,

    “Byron Allen’s Comics Unleashed”, and Nuvo TV’s “Stand Up & Deliver”. Alycia

    was slaying multicultural stages around the USA, all the while proving that humor

    truly is universal.

    Alycia’s comedy is a gift that she eagerly shares with friends, family and our

    dedicated service men and women overseas. Her global stand-up has

    entertained troops in Japan, Korea, Guam, Oman, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and

    Djibouti Africa. She was humbled and thankful for the opportunity to entertain and

    meet some of the most courageous Americans in the world.

    Alycia is a “Jill” of all trades and has written for the “The Steve Harvey Morning

    Show” and punched up scripts for TV and film. She was also the first female

    audience “warm-up” person for such notable TV shows as “Girlfriends”, “Wanda

    At Large”, “The Tyra Banks Show” and most recently, the Emmy-nominated, CBS

    morning panel show, “The Talk”.

    In May of 2004, Alycia was featured in Essence Magazine as “One To Watch” and

    that title still holds true today. Her 5th comedy album, ‘Let Alycia Be Alycia” is

    receiving rave reviews, on Satellite Radio, ITunes, and on her very own Pandora

    Station. It’s quite clear that Alycia and her comic genius are here to stay.

    Comedy

    Family. Friends. Love. They all frighten Greg. You can experience all the fun of his epic cry for help at comedy clubs around Southern California, or on Twitter and Facebook. A native of the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he currently wastes what remains of his dwindling life in LA. After winning too many screenplay competitions to count, he moved into a fun world with no soul-crushing rejection whatsoever: stand-up. Please say "hi" if you see him.
