She's brought laughter to renowned festivals like the Edinburgh and Dublin fringe festivals, as well as The Forbidden Fruit and Cork Comedy festivals. You can bet she knows how to rock the stage!

She's a true comedic powerhouse, both on and off the screen!
If you're a fan of radio shows, you might have caught Alison's witty charm on The Right Hook with George Hook on Newstalk.

They make quite the dynamic duo!
In 2017, Alison showcased her writing skills by co-creating the delightful six-part sitcom Nowhere Fast with her boyfriend Simon Mulholland. The series, directed by the talented Simon Gibney, follows Angela (played by Alison) as she moves back to Ballybeag in the midlands after losing her job on a Dublin radio show due to a high-profile libel case.
