"Parks And Recreation" Actress/Comedian/Writer Alison Becker Shares Stories Of Breaking Into Hollywood

In this episode, I have the pleasure of chatting with the very funny and talented Alison Becker. Her credits include: "Parks and Recreation," "Mayne Street," "The Newsroom," "The League," and "The Colbert Report," just to name a few. We talk about everything from playing a detective on several versions of "Law And Order" to apple boxes to how delightful it is to work with Amy Poehler.

ALISON BECKER'S BIO

Alison Becker is a comedian who plays Shauna-Malwae Tweep on NBC's Parks and Recreation. She can be seen as Sarah Morton in the Emmy-nominated ESPN webseries, Mayne Street, and she played Becky on the IFC improvised comedy Z Rock. Alison has also guest starred on FX's The League, Showtime's Californication, CBS's Rules of Engagement, NBC's Law and Order: SVU, and had a recurring role on Law and Order: Criminal Intent. She has appeared in sketches for Late Night with Conan O'BrienThe Pete Holmes ShowHuman Giant, The Colbert ReportKroll Show and Nick Swardson's Pretend Time. Recently, Alison played opposite Will Ferrell in a Funny or Die production, playing Ron Burgundy's girlfriend. As a VJ for Vh1 (and before that, for FUSE), Alison hosted her own weekly show. You may also remember her as one of the pranksters on MTV's hidden camera show, Boiling Points, or from one of a million Vh1 clip shows. Still not sure where you know her from? Maybe it's from Adult Swim's Newsreaders, or from her recurring role on Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom. Or maybe it's from The Other Guys, or from Above Average's webseries The Morning After (which was mentioned in USA Today's "must see" list of 2013). Or maybe you remember her from Dating Rules from my Future Self, one of the most viewed scripted webseries of all time. Or, maybe you just go to the same Starbucks... Alison has been involved with the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre for over 10 years, on four different house teams, and in many other live shows. www.alisonbecker.com Twitter and Instagram: @thealisonbecker
