Originally from Massachusetts, Ali got an early start in the world of musical theatre at the Franklin School for the Performing Arts. As a child, she performed in the national tours of Evita (directed by Hal Prince) and Joseph and the...Dreamcoat. In her teen years, she toured internationally with Electric Youth, singing and dancing her way across the U.K., France, Italy, Austria, Slovenia, and Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas. 

A lover of all things comedy, Ali enjoys blending musical theatre with improv and stand up in her solo cabaret show "I Only Wanna Laugh."

Ali graduated in tempore* from Oklahoma City University with a Bachelor of Music in Music Theatre and now resides in New York City.


In an effort to harness the power of her comedic heroes, she often wears overalls like Gilda and is learning to play the banjo like Steve.
