Follow sock puppet producers Glamour Puss and Frencie’s quest to preserve the holy cannon of sitcoms through the ancient art of sock puppetry. The Echo is the only venue in North America for this important series.
Whether she's acting on screen, doing stand up, or rocking the mic, you can bet Alicyn’s having fun. She beams with a playfulness and youthful exuberance that is both contagious and energizing. Beginning with her strong belief that performers inspire others through their work, she strives to create something special with each and every project.
As a stand up comic, Ali’s unique brand of sweet and sassy stand-up has graced the stages of The World Famous Improv, The Comedy Store, The Ha Ha Cafe, Room 5 & many more clubs across Los Angeles. Her comedic songwriting skills are on full display as she incorporates her witty and distinctively catchy, pop-infused ukulele ditties into her stand-up.
As a voice over artist, her enthusiasm and artistic dedication are on full display as the voices of Miss Sunshine, Miss Whoops, and Miss Naughty in Cartoon Network’s Emmy-nominated animated program, “The Mr. Men Show” and as the singing voice of the Little Miss Sunshine Toy currently available nationwide in Target stores. Other series credits include three characters in the hit series “Olivia” currently airing on Nickelodeon, a starring role in the animated pilot “Sticky Buns,” and the lead in the animated short “Perdita Smiles.” She has also gained the attention of legions of video game enthusiasts through her work on Prince of Persia: Warrior Within and as the Female Blood Elf in 2007’s international smash hit, World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade. Her numerous promo & commercial credits include Disney, Vongo, Starz, and the WB.
On screen she has starred in the award-winning indie comedy feature “Alondra Smiles”, the psychological thriller, “World Full of Nothing,” and numerous short films as well as originating the role of Jenn in the world-premiere of cosmic rock musical “Earth Sucks” which LA Times called, "daffy, smart & energized." Variety called Alicyn’s duet in “Earth Sucks” a "highlight of the show."
Alicyn is currently producting her new web-series “Inside Alicyn’s Wonderland,” an interview show that goes through the looking glass into the wild world of animation to sit down with the folks behind the cartoons you love. The show was release at www.alicynswonderland.com in August 2009.
In her spare time, she enjoys writing and playing “serious” songs on uke and guitar, spending way too much time on the interwebs, going to Burning Man, and hanging with her kitties, Monkee & Foley.
