Much to the chagrin of her father, Allison first started improvising in church when she learned how much more fun it was to make her sister laugh than read along and keep memorizing oppressing propaganda. Both sisters ended up working for Second City where "girls like us fit in." Allison toured all over the United States and the world with Second City, including festivals like the Piccolo Spoleto in Charleston, SC, and a USO tour to entertain the troops in Europe. Allison understudied many resident shows in Chicago and right before moving to LA in the summer of 2011, co-wrote & performed The Second City Chicago's 2010 mainstage revue, "Spoiler Alert: Everybody Dies." Allison has appeared in national commercial campaigns for Bud Light, Twix, Pep Boys, Joe's Crab Shack, and Nintendo WiiU. She's been seen on ABC Family's Bunheads and the Disney show Dog With a Blog. Allison is a series regular on Comedy Central's series, MashUp, and she recently voiced a character in 20th Century Fox's new animated feature, Epic the movie. Since shortly after learning how to improvise, Allison has excitedly taught it to classes young and old. She frequently directs shows at the Second City, and appears in shows there, and at iOWest, and the UCB.
