Ally Beardsley

Ally Beardsley is a writer and performer from beachy San Diego, California.

She began her formal improv training in January 2012, when she wandered into the back room of a coffee shop and met Julie Brister. 

She's a newcomer, but considers her summer days spent watching MADtv at church camp to be "very serious preparation", and not just "a way she could get out of the sun". 

She is currently in Amsterdam, touring with BOOM Chicago. Lekker!
