Alycia Cooper was born with a mic in her hand. It was a medical miracle and a sign that her mother either had an iron deficiency or desperately wanted Alycia to be a performer. The latter was true and it didn’t take long for Alycia’s funny bone to take shape. And like every great comedienne, by the age of 5, she had perfected knock- knock jokes and imitating drunk family members. This love of laughter was Alycia’s beacon to the stage and after graduating college, she pursued her destiny and it patiently waited for her.
She paid her dues and perfected her signature brand of humor in dimly lit comedy clubs and crack houses around the country. Crack patrons aren’t very attentive and they heckle the hell out of you, but they allowed Alycia to sharpen her style into a distinct blend of and homage to her three comedy idols. Alycia’s hilarious and unique viewpoint has the razor sharp satire of Chris Rock, the observational arsonist rants of George Carlin and the political and cultural clowning of Margaret Cho. This delicious comedy gumbo was Alycia’s entrée into the big leagues.
Alycia opened for some of the biggest names in the business. She now had momentum and it was leading her full speed ahead to Hollywood. This comedy chameleon was quickly cast in popular shows, including “The Parkers”, “Raising Hope”, and “Grounded for Life”. She also performed her comedy on the national stages of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”, “America’s Got Talent”, “Stand Up In Stilettos” BET’s “Comic View”, “Tru Tv’s “Laff Tracks”, “Byron Allen’s Comics Unleashed”, and Nuvo TV’s “Stand Up & Deliver”. Alycia was slaying multicultural stages around the USA, all the while proving that humor truly is universal.
She then started booking bigger acting roles. She played “Auntie Dee” in the first ever Facebook series, “Loosely Exactly Nicole.”She then booked the series regular role of Michelle in a digital series called, “Poz Roz.”After that, she appeared in a string of independent films, then booked a major role as the voice of a police officer in the blockbuster hit, “Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse.” All this, while having a top album in heavy rotation on Sirius Satellite’s Laugh USA Channel 98 called “Let Alycia Be Alycia” (which broke the top 10).
Alycia’s comedy is a gift that she eagerly shares with friends, family and our dedicated service men and women overseas. Her global stand-up has entertained troops in Japan, Korea, Guam, Oman, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Djibouti Africa. She was humbled and thankful for the opportunity to entertain and meet some of the most courageous Americans in the world.
Alycia is a “Jill” of all trades and has written for the “The Steve Harvey Morning Show” and punched up scripts for TV and film. She was also the first female audience “warm-up” person for such notable TV shows as “Girlfriends”, “Wanda At Large”, “The Tyra Banks Show” and most recently, the Emmy-winning, CBS morning panel show, “The Talk”.
In May of 2004, Alycia was featured in Essence Magazine as “One To Watch” and that title still holds true today. To date, Alycia has five comedy albums that are receiving rave reviews on Satellite Radio, ITunes, and on her very own Pandora Station.It’s quite clear that Alycia and her comic genius are here to stay.
