Monica Vallero was born and raised in Treviso, a small city near Venice, Italy (pics below). She was originally trained in classical dramatic acting at the Eleonora Duse International, and lived in Rome for six years working as an actor in film, television and commercials with the next generation of the European auteurs. 

 

Yearning to expand her voice and career, she decided to move to New York eight years ago and studied with legendary Susan Batson, who trained Nicole Kidman, Oprah Winfrey, Juliette Binoche, and more.

 

Upon her recent move to LA, she once again reinvented herself as a stand-up comedian and versatile actress. After taking just one class with David Arnold, she was referred at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles where she is now a regular. Additionally, she currently has a recurring role on the TV show In Between Men and will be shooting the third season soon, she recently played an Armenian servant in the feature film Armenia, my love. 

 

No More, one of the films that she wrote, produced and acted, was selected at the Palm Springs Film Festival last summer and she just won best screenplay award for Waiting for Fabrizio at the Corto Corrente Film Festival in Rome. Her next project, Too Hard On Yourself, a motivational poem about the pressures on women to strive for perfection, will be released virally by the end of 2017.
