Alison Kawa with My Pet Monster

I am currently looking for representation. I just moved to Los Angeles from San Francisco, where I studied acting with Rob Zimmerman at Beverly Hills Playhouse, private singing lessons, and improv at Bay Area Theatresports. In the Bay Area I was principal in a number of commercials, including a national spot for Olive Garden. I also performed standup on a regular basis. I currently write and produce my own online comedic skits.

I grew up in the Midwest as the middle of five kids, which is enough to give even a rock character. I was classically trained as an aria and Broadway singer in high school, where I participated in a number of plays and musicals.

My drama skills laid dormant until I joined the Weinbach musical Made in China in San Francisco three weeks before opening night in February 2013, and starred in their next production A Match Made in Hell in the fall that same year.

I also played Battle Woman in the Internet comedy series Neighborhood Watchmen, which follows superheroes in an office setting.
