Alyssa Carroll is a comedic director with a deep passion for highlighting life’s inherent joy. Informed by her tiny-town upbringing, Alyssa’s style of storytelling is intimate and unafraid of being a bit wacky. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Emerson College, and from there moved out to Los Angeles, CA where she spent time learning and growing in the world of post production.
Alyssa has directed for iO Comedy Network where she led a team in creating bi-monthly comedy sketches for YouTube distribution. Her original web pilot, Illegal to a Degree, was a top-four finalist in Filmaka’s Multi-Genre Web Series Competition. Most recently, Alyssa has been directing as a student in The Second City’s competitive, year-long directing program. When she’s not making short films, Alyssa is writing, creating comedy sketches with peers from The Second City, and trying her best to coax her garden into staying alive.
