Forget the prison industrial complex. For most American women over, say, age 12, it's the princess industrial complex that'll really get you. And Alysia Wood, named America's Next Funniest comedian by the founder of the Improv in 2010, knows just how well the 'princess' moniker can be used to cut a woman down to size. Much as, oh, an arborist cuts his 'patients' down to size. But not only does being called a princess for any reason stick in Wood's craw, not only does the idea that an arborist belabor the fact he's a 'doctor' make every mom-slaught Wood's family can toss at her that much worse, and not only does she use notes when she performs because her court-ordered counselor told her to (how else are you going to remember to do the new suicide joke'), Alysia Wood knows the essential truth that, if you're not dead or in jail, you're a success! As she puts it, 'I'm responsible enough to know that I'm irresponsible!' And that's what turns a prospective princess into a comedy queen. As a new face in the great company of Stand Up! Records' other awesome non-princesses (including Maria Bamford, Jackie Kashian, and Melinda Hill), Alysia Wood brings talent, charm, a self-deprecating (but never self-hating) humor, and the astounding ability to drunk text with precision, specificity, duplicity' and embedded video. Even better' We're pretty sure she's got a garage full of stolen TVs and cartons of Lucky Strikes. Now that's a 'Princess' we're proud to know.
