Meet the Absolute Worst
Known best for her role as Cam's sister, Pam on ABC's 'Modern Family', Powell used comedy growing up to come out of her shy shell. Powell trained at Missouri State University where she earned her BFA in Theatre Performance and no one will ever really care. After moving to Los Angeles, Powell began comedy improv training at iOWest, UCB, and The Groundlings. She quickly moved up the ranks to begin perfoming on several house teams including The Groundlings' Sunday Company as well as coaching and teaching at various theatres in LA.

You may recognize Alison from a non-union commercial that's running in Colorado right now... well not all of Colorado, it"s mostly in the Denver area. Regardless, she's doing terribly.
How We Met
Alison and Dana had a lot of mutual friends but did not know each other. Alison asked Dana if she would do an improv show called 'Date Night' with her. Dana agreed and all of a sudden Alison started calling her to chat on her way to work. That was it. They've been talking, bossing, and yelling at each other ever since.
