Elissa Rosenthal

I was born in Long Island, New York.  I came out of my mother’s vagina singing and dancing.  Always putting on a show, I dreamed of becoming a famous actor. That is until Britney Spears came out and I dyed my hair blonde, had my belly button pierced, got some red pleather pants and vowed to be a pop star. Getting a record deal in high school, I moved to LA alone and worked on my album. I realized it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be and got into comedy because that’s easier, right? I was the youngest graduate of the Second City conservatory and performed with them for five years. I also performed with Groundlings, UCB, ImprovOlympic and did stand up all over opening for some pretty big performers.  Getting close to some major parts, but not getting them I decided to go to nutrition school to have the backup plan I always swore off.  After living in LA for 8 years, I moved back to New York still working on everything that inspires me.

What I Do, Job-wise: Holistic Health Coach/Comedian 

What I Do, Fun-wise: Improv, cooking, dancing like no one is watching for REAL.

My Motto: "The sweet isn’t as sweet without the sour” & “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

The First Movie Star I Ever Had A Crush On: Leonardo Dicaprio. Titanic came out when I was 13, I saw it 4 times in the theater, bought every book every written on him and truly believed one day we would be married. 

The Most Played Song On My iTunes: RADIOHEAD, “Pyramid Song”…but actually at the moment “Teenage Dream” by Katy Perry because inside I’m actually 17 and it reminds me of a guy I recently met.

Last Book I Read Without Skimming Any Parts: “Integrative Nutrition” by Joshua Rosenthal. Read it! Know the truth about what we eat!

My Most Worn Item of Clothing: Frye Boots! They are so comfortable and last forever. 

Beauty Products That I Hoard: Fresh- Ancienne Crème! , Moroccan Oil, Carols Daughter Body Scrub. The list goes on. I’m super vain.

I smell like: Angel by Thierry Mugler and sadly sometimes garlic.

I Have Faked An Orgasm (Yes/No): Kind of one time…not in the moment, but afterwards when they asked I was like, “Ummmmm yeah”?
