Comedian Alia Janine has had an interesting career trajectory proving there is more than just ‘life’ after retiring from porn, there’s also success.
Alia started out like many performers as a feature dancer when she was 20 years old. From there she got her degree in Police Science and became a security guard, and an armored car driver.
When she turned 30, Alia moved to Miami to continue her dancing career which was her entre into the adult industry. Four years and 150 scenes later, she switched professional gears once again.
After appearing in feature films, cable movies, comedy sketches, books and radio shows, Alia turned her attention to make up and mainstream music videos. She also started writing jokes for her comedian friends, which led to performing with comic Sam Tripoli and his Naughty Show in 2010.
From there Alia moved to NY and started taking classes at UCB (Upright Citizens Brigade) and other schools. She performed at the city’s best comedy clubs and eventually established her own acclaimed showcase at New York City’s The Cutting Room called, The Cutthroat Comedy Hour.
Her next show is today (May 21st 2015) presented by Hardcore Comedy Entertainment and sponsored by Fleshlight, Dallas Novelty, and The Misfits Network.
The Cutthroat Comedy Hour is a no-holds-barred comedy showcase featuring the industry’s brightest comics, top porn stars, sex toy giveaways, plus surprise guests. Doors open at 9pm, show starts at 10pm.
The former adult model and actress turned stand up comic also hosts her own podcast, The Scatterbrains Podcast, where she talks about life, sex and comedy; and covers everything from todays hot topics to sex education, with funny and informative interviews.
Alia started her own network to house her podcast called, The Misfits Network, which hosts shows from all around the country, and is home to not only comedians, but to other podcasters that don’t quite “fit in” with the other networks.
This busy entrepreneur is also an Undergrad pursuing a degree in Psychology online, and has been inducted into several national and international honor societies. I caught up with Alia in between podcasts, studying, and shows, to pick her brain about stand up, and sex.
