Each week on The Absolute Worst Podcast, Dana Powell (Successful Comedian/Actor/Writer, Adequate Mom) and Alison Royer (Fledgling Comedian/Actor/Writer, Terrible Wife) seek and give free therapy by telling you their problems, asking you to tell them your problems, and then they just pray to God that any of it works out. They're basically the opposite of Oprah.
About the Host
Host Name: Alison Royer & Dana Powell
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. After moving to Los Angeles, Powell began comedy improv training at iOWest, UCB, and The Groundlings, where she quickly moved up the ranks and began performing on several house teams including the prestigious Groundlings' Sunday Company. She also coaches and teaches at various theatres in LA.
You may recognize Dana from projects such as Bridesmaids, Modern Family, Veep, The Office, Arrested Development, Blackish, and the 2017 revival of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Alison Royer is from Chicago but got most of her improv experience while working on the mainstage at Improv Asylum in Boston. She has performed her one-woman show, "Everything Is Literally Terrible All The Time," to sold out audiences across the country. In her blog, This Is Going To Work, Alison recounts horrific life experiences like marriage, childbirth and shopping for pants.
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.
