A native New Yorker, Elyssa has been acting since the age of 5 (she still owns the little 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”.
Since making the move out west to L.A., Elyssa has been seen in various commercials and television shows, including featured roles on “Silicon Valley”, “The Mindy Project”, and “Chelsea”, among others.
At The Pack, Elyssa is a founding member of the TPT house sketch team Tantrum and the co-producer of the monthly show Chopping Block Comedy.
She is a very big fan of matzoh ball soup and sour pickles – in case you’re wondering.
