Elyssa Phillips

A native New Yorker, Elyssa has been acting since the age of 5 (she still owns the red dress with the black bow from when she played Annie at the age of 6). After studying at the British American Drama Academy in England, and graduating from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Elyssa spent her time performing around the country in various theatrical productions....from Shakespeare's "As You Like It" and "Measure For Measure", to the long-running improvisational comedies "Tony 'n Tina's Wedding" and "Shear Madness"...with some other tricks of her trade along the way.... Elyssa has just made the move out west to L.A. and is currently acting, writing, and producing on various improv, television, and film projects…but can usually be seen traipsing around the likes of Upright Citizens Brigade…or Osteria Mozza (hence her passion & knowledge of all things libations).
