Elyse Martin

Elyse hales from the suburbs of Los Angeles-where dreams die and children are born in their place. You know how they say that some people come into your life and change you for the better? She is not one of those people, but she is extremely blunt. She will tell you to your face, instead of behind your back, if your outfit looks like it’s from Target. She means this in the nicest possible way. She’s broke — be like her, go to Goodwill and pray someone with good taste died recently. She spent a year in public school once, it was the scariest year of her life, but at least she got to be the prettiest one. She then went off to college at the University of San Francisco. There, she experimented with drugs and earned a Bachelor of Arts (her father still considers her “uneducated”). Elyse identifies herself as an Anglo Saxon, but desperately wants minorities to think she is cool. She is currently studying improv and sketch writing at The Groundlings and Upright Citizens Brigade, where she also performs. You can catch her out and about performing stand up. She is an actress, a writer, a comedian, and a babysitter.
