– ALI REINGOLD –
Ali Reingold is a comedian based in Portland, Oregon, who endears herself to audiences with her friendly hair, curly demeanor, and grammatically correct jokes. She has performed in venues all over the country and in such festivals as SF Sketchfest, Women in Comedy, Hell Yes Fest, and All Jane, and she was a competitor in the 38th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition. When not performing comedy, Ali enjoys eating peanut butter straight out of the jar to the point of self-disgust, and cuddling with her cat, Terwilliger Van Buren. She once yelled at the father of the bride at her friend’s wedding, but it was for legitimate reasons regarding the dance playlist, and she regrets nothing.
