Join singer/songwriter Alyssa Anjelica James at the M-Bar in Hollywood on March 21 as she takes her audience on a journey while dishing about marriage, sex, politics and eco-living. Comedy and the environment may be an unusual combination, but Alyssa has successfully merged both, using stand-up comedy to create awareness about green issues. “It is how the message is being delivered that strikes a cord with people,” she explains.
Alyssa began performing in theater in Manhattan at the age of thirteen playing a runaway teen in Elizabeth Swados' big hit “Runaway. She began doing stand-up in New York City in 1995, and joined two improv groups which led her to spots on TV shows for TV Guide Network, Discovery Channel and most recently landing the role of news anchor Kimberly Porter in the new Independent film called “The Instant Messenger”.
Alyssa has continued to write and perform her own music which has also found its place in the independent music community. Most recently she was honored by Billboard for her song “Subway Gospel” as being in the top 500 best new songwriters in the world. Her songs have been featured in numerous TV shows as well as Independent films.
A self-proclaimed tree hugger, James pulls inspiration from the everyday things people do but don’t think about. She became passionate about living an eco-friendly and holistic lifestyle after being diagnosed with Crohn's Disease at age 19. After twelve years of hospitalizations and medications, James set out to heal herself naturally. “Creating music and comedy really became therapeutic for me,” James says.
In addition to her comedy, Alyssa Anjelica James will be performing songs from her new album “within,” in which she fuses a range of genres and styles to create a unique and intoxicating sound.
M Bar is located at 1253 Vine Street in Hollywood, California. Reservations are required -- please call (323) 856-0036. For more information about singer Alyssa Anjelica James, visit her Web site, http://www.alyssamusic.com.
