Allie moved from Chicago to Madison, WI in 2004, after growing up in a small mid-western IL farm town, and now considers herself to be part country mouse, part city mouse, finally livin' her dream in the Land of Cheese. Since making her stand-up comedy debut in 2015 (at the ripe age of 38, now 41), she has been a writer and performer for the Madison-based sketch and variety show, "The Whoa Show", and has opened for Andrew Santino at Comedy on State. Allie is now the host of her own monthly showcase, "Comedy at the Cabaret", and is excited to go on her first mini-tour with Lady Laughs Comedy in September.
