Actress Writer Comedian Filmmaker Singer
Anastasia Washington is an Award Winning Actress, Comedian, Podcaster, Writer, Director, Singer, Curvy Model, Comic Con Panelist and Dance Hall Queen. Phew she really does it all. As an LA native she started acting and singing in the industry at the age of 3 and has since done everything under the show biz sun. She’s seen the industry at its best and worst and now as an adult is the change she wishes to see in the world.
You can find Anastasia making bold content like her award winning shorts, “What are you?” that focuses on the dreaded question every mixed person is asked, and “He Said, She Said” which tackled sexual assault. During the pandemic alone she produced, wrote and starred in her One Woman Show that Played at the Black Voices Festival and Solo Fest, “ 50 Shades of Mixed: Confessions of your Ethnically Ambiguous Best Friend” and a web series called Disordered.
Featured in Stand Up Festivals including Electric Comedy Festival, Laugh after Dark Showcase, Future is Female Electric Comedy Festival Best of Fest, Burbank Comedy Festival and Black Woman in Comedy as well as Called Out by Elizabeth Bank's Who HAHA.
Her content takes on subjects like Police Brutality, Eating Disorders, Color-ism, and more while infusing humor and love to truly start those hard conversations from a more receptive place. She strives to take those difficult topics and make the big changes needed through creative expressions. Just take the time she went to a Neo Nazi Birthday Party and was denied cake, flash forward to Cake Wednesday (the weekly Holiday she made up) to re-narrate a trauma and celebrate life’s small and big wins every week.
What’s next for Anastasia?
She will continue to produce her podcasts about Pop Culture from a BIPOC point of view, True Crime, Reality TV, Paranormal and History. Be at that Stand up grind while writing a Self Help book for those with a sense of humor and getting her Comedy Special and Album up and out to the masses. She has written a few pilots focusing on family dynamics and growing up in the industry, and naturally also werewolves. She is also is working on feature films that discuss color-ism, discrimination and true crime, all through horror and comedy. I’d tell you who she’s like, but, as Rocket Racoon says, “Ain’t no thing like me, except me.”
