Tracey Conway (born August 27, 1956) is a comedian and was a regular cast member on KING-TV's Almost Live!, a Seattle-based sketch comedy show, from 1984 to 1999. She is president of Tracey Conway Speaking.


Conway earned a BFA (Theater Arts) from the University of New Mexico and a MFA (Drama) from the University of Southern California. Conway was one of the main female performers on Almost Live!. Her recurring characters included the eponymous character in "The Worst Girlfriend in the World". In 1995, after taping an episode of Almost Live!, Conway collapsed on the set and was in full cardiac arrest. A police officer named Kurt Lysen, who was in the audience at the time, performed CPR until paramedics from Seattle Fire Department arrived and provided advanced life support. She now has an ICD. Conway's speaking engagements include this experience and CPR/AED training.
