Allison Page is a writer/actor/comedian with nice hair, not necessarily in that order. She came to San Francisco from the frozen tundra of rural northern Minnesota in 2008, and first hooked up with the lobsters acting in 2010′s KML Preaches to the Choir and pretty much has had her lobster claws in the bisque since then. (what? yeah.) When she’s not busy with the lobsters, Allison can be found toiling away at Zynga as a game writer, or performing with companies including Custom Made Theatre and San Francisco Theater Pub or in various places on the internet, like the web series Everybody’s a Comedian.
