Phoebus High School alumni Allison Moore to open local show for Sinbad
Allison Moore, a 2001 graduate of Phoebus High School, is a local comedienne who is opening for comedian Sinbad at Norfolk State University on Saturday, April 15.
Moore, a native of Hampton who attended Asbury Elementary School, Spratley Middle School, and Phoebus High School, describes herself as “a fresh new comedienne reviving comedy with my clean and super hilarious stand-up performance.” She is also a graduate of Norfolk State University, The George Washington University, and has worked seven years as a human resources professional.
Moore and Tier-ra Henry, a 2000 graduate of Phoebus, started an outreach/philanthropic non-profit named Robes REACH, Inc. in 2013. They use the organization to give back to the Hampton community by supporting the relief efforts of local homeless men and women and fostered and orphaned children. Moore also hosts annual women empowerment conferences and events.
“I attribute much of my success and creativity to my foundational and primary education from Hampton City Schools,” said Moore.
When Moore is not working her full-time job as a traveling comedienne doing stand-up, and being a wife and mother of three children, she uses her human resources experience and education to deliver workplace training such as team building, diversity, and public speaking.
Moore said she finds the most joy in spending time with her family, and fellowshipping with friends and fellow church members.
“If you aren’t able to find me in one of these many places,” said Moore, “I can guarantee you will find me somewhere scheming on how to avoid washing dishes.”
