Ali Weiss is a native New York actress, host and nonfiction writer. The self-proclaimed “Bukowski of wellness,” she’s spent years navigating the concept of #selfcare in a bid to avoid the psych ward. Just kidding...kind of.

Existing at the intersection of comedy and investigative journalism, Health Is Hell satirizes the absurdity of America’s kale-crazed culture by presenting candid conversations about taboo and imperfection in place of green juice and gyrotonic exercise. When she’s not writing and performing social commentary-laden sketches, Ali interviews rule breakers who live outside the bounds of what is “socially acceptable” to figure out how they’ve survived…and thrived.

She has been seen in Erotic Review Magazine, New York Magazine, Playboy, Refinery 29, Thrillist and Vice.
