After an Allyson Smith show, you’ll typically find her on the comedy club floor, with a line of eager fans queued up to talk with her, to confess to her or to share some comically grisly detail from their own lives. That intimacy, that uncommon bond between audience and performer is at the heart of Allyson’s magic as a comedian. Like the most relatable actresses working today or your very best friend, she finds a way to connect with everyone in a room, be they from southeast Asia, the U.K. or North America. In fact, no matter where she went, the verdict came back unanimous: this girl was hilarious and she absolutely owned the stage.
Over time, Allyson has refined her decidedly rare style of comedy, one in which her girl-next-door demeanor plays in contrast to material that’s entirely unafraid to go to awkward, adult or challenging places. But even at it’s most biting, Smith’s comedy is a tent big enough for everyone in her audience, no matter their age, sex or preferred level of alcohol consumption. In fact, it’s the rare Smith fan that doesn’t leave her show with some small sense of déjà vu, like they’ve known her for years.
So don't miss this opportunity to meet your new best friend.
