Alexis Turrentine

Performer at iO West

Alexis Turrentine is a sketch comedy writer and improviser with over 10 years of experience. She hails from the Washington DC Metro area and recently moved to LA in March 2015. Alexis has taken every improv and sketch class offered at the DC Improv, but not every class at UCB, The Groundlings and iO West.

Over the years, she was a member of several improv teams back East, as well as a Northern Virginia sketch writing team, which in February 2015, produced a 90-minute comedy charity event for Lost Dog & Cat Rescue that she co-wrote and co-directed. This combined two of Alexis’ greatest loves: sketch comedy and animals. It was a glorious moment for her and of course, she wrote a real life inspired cat lady sketch for the show. Alexis is very excited to be a part of her new iO West sketch team, Millard Fillmore. She will be survived by her lively senior ginger kitty, Mango, if she ever expires from over-excitement
