Jumping between Mexican and Middle-Eastern households during her youth, her work also sheds light on two extraordinarily relevant cultures, as well as growing up with a strong multi-cultural identity. A new face in comedy, Wally has performed stand up comedy all over Los Angeles and New York City.

If only she could stop losing her phone.



Content Disclaimer

Given the ridiculously fun and unpredictable nature of improv, we can't guarantee age appropriateness (every audience gives different suggestions); we recommend Mainstage for those who enjoy PG-13 comedy. If possible profanity and riskier subject matter isn't your thing or you'd prefer not to enable your kids' uncouth tendencies, we highly recommend the Family Show and All Access Improv.
