Tricia McAlpin

Tricia improvises at UCB with The Smokes every Monday night. She wrote and performed in Talking is Hard, a sketch-play about a book club held hostage that recently ended a run at UCB.  Tricia was a performer on Harold Night for more than a hot second, most recently on the long running team Arts & Athletics, and was also a writer on Maude Night with Bonafide. 

Tricia wrote on the upcoming third season of Billy on the Street. As half of the two person sketch group Tricia & Johanna, she has written exclusive videos for FunnyorDie. While she was engaged, she started a blog about weddings and how they make her barf at WeddingBarf.com.  Before moving to LA, Tricia performed with the Sketch and Improv group Penny, whose show White Orphans enjoyed a long and especially fun run at UCBNY.
