Alyssa Bailey
Bailey refuses to go by her first name and is originally from Washington State; moving to Chicago (sight unseen) to pursue comedy after teaching English overseas. Getting evacuated from her first-ever improv class due to a fire was just the beginning: she is a graduate of iO Chicago’s Improv and Music Improv Programs, Second City’s Improv and Writing Programs and ComedySportz Pro School. You can see her perform with RIFF: Chicago’s Music Improv Party as well as teaching the occasional Krav Maga class. She recently summitted Kilimanjaro and finds her professional sweet spot in the overlap of adult learning, facilitation and ice-cold Diet Cokes.
