Headliner: Alysia Wood
Alysia was nominated by Campus Activities Magazine for their Reader’s Choice Awards in the comedy category for “Best Performer – Female Artist”. Long before the nomination, The Bob and Tom show called her material, “well-written… well-structured.” National Lampoon Comedy Radio called her, “Hysterical!” She jokes about so many “issues” that a therapist once handed her a business card during one of her shows. Wood is also a contributing writer for internet columns and frequent guest on many podcasts. She was a panelist on Niecy Nash’s Yahoo series, “Let’s Talk About Love” and is in the “I Am Road Comic” documentary. Currently, she appears frequently on Seattle area television shows like “The 206? and “New Day NW”, both on NBC KING5.
Opener: Phil Johnson
From Shakespearean bees to redneck vampires to anthropomorphic cell phones with weight issues, Phil Johnson fills the stage with quirky characters that combine social satire with absurdist flights of fancy. Then the guitar comes out and kicks the show into an even higher gear with songs about the bright future (and dark past) of babies and what he would do if he woke up one morning as an actual woman. On stage, Phil’s playful humor and likeable, endearing manner allow him to shake things up without antagonizing the audience.
