From Allen’s Bio
“I live in Los Angeles writing and telling jokes. I’ve performed stand-up comedy twice on CONAN. I was recently named one of Comedy Central’s Comics to Watch. One time, I got a standing ovation for telling a single joke. I’m featured on the Holy Fuck. Live Comedy. album. Illegally download it. I’ve performed at South by Southwest, Moontower Comedy Festival, Funny or Die’s Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, CROM Comedy Festival in Omaha, Comedy Carnivale in Salt Lake City, Hell Yes Fest! in New Orleans, and the RIOT Festival right here in Los Angeles. I was one-fourth of the sketch group WOMEN, which was featured on IFC.com’s Comedy Crib, Tosh.0 and L.A. Weekly’s 10 L.A. Comedy Acts to Watch. One interesting personal fact about me is that I like having sex, because it feels good.”
