Ashlee Voorsanger is a comedian who combines her Texas roots, with a few years in Los Angeles, adding just a dash of her New York neuroses. Winning her first stage role in Dallas after showing up to an audition to “see what it was like,” she went on to perform in theatre, film, commercials, voice overs, and print before venturing into stand up comedy. Finally able to combine her love of writing, characters, stories, and embarrassing tales – stand up is where she found her home. Finding inspiration in legendary performers like Johnny Carson, Lily Tomlin, and Jonathan Winters (she was caught a number of times sneaking out of her room as a child to watch them on the lone family TV), Ashlee made her stand up debut on the nationally televised “The Greg Behrendt Show”, and performed around LA at venues including The Improv and Room 5. She has continued studying, writing, and performing after moving to New York and has been seen at Comix, Village Lantern, and The Grisly Pear among others.
