...daffy and sweetly outlandish...”

Alisa Rosenthal (she/her) is a musician, comedian, and teaching artist living in Chicago, IL. A humorous singer-songwriter, her natural energy and engagement infuses her live shows as well as her music and theater programs for learners of all ages. She teaches outreach in the Chicago Public Schools, facilitating drama via Lookingglass Theatre and music via the Old Town School of Folk Music. Specialized programs include work with people with dementia, children with special needs, and children's hospitals.

A semi-finalist for the Andy Kaufman Award, she's brought her unique brand of musical comedy to showcases and festivals across the country as her vaudeville-inspired alter ego Plucky Rosenthal. You can also catch her as the emcee for local fundraiser the Chicago League of Lady Arm Wrestlers, which she is indeed a former wrestler of, and will happily give you arm wrestling tips some day.
