Alison started performing on stage while she was still at school. One of her early roles was Toto, the puppy from Wizard of Oz. After graduating from school in Pasadena, Brie enrolled in the California Institute of the Arts. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in drama studies in 2005. As a student, Alison performed in productions in small local theatres and at kids’ parties.
In 2009 the comedy series Community came out, where Brie ended up in one of the leading roles alongside Donald Glover, Joel McHale, and Gillian Jacobs. Dan Harmon, the showrunner, had to put some effort into keeping this experimental comedy afloat. Some actors were fired, some actors left on their own, and the show had to move to a different channel; however, the audiences’ love and support helped the series to run for 6 seasons.
At that stage, Alison’s career in full feature films still wasn’t working out well. Movies in which she played either turned out to be box office flops or were harshly criticized by critics and the public; moreover, her roles were very short. These projects included Born (2007), The Deadliest Lesson (2008), Save the Date (2012), and others.
Later, however, her situation improved. Alison continued playing in light teenage comedies but of higher quality. These included movies such as The Five-Year Engagement (2012), The Kings of Summer (2013), Search Party (2014), Get Hard (2014), and Sleeping with Other People (2015), which all had higher prominence and a broader audience.
Brie also voiced characters for the animation series BoJack Horseman (2014) and The Lego Movie animation (2014). She played in Steven Spielberg’s The Post (2017) as well, starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep.
In 2020, the thriller "Promising Young Woman" was premiered, in which Alison played one of the main roles. The actress also played the role of Michelle in the horror film "The Rental", which was released in the same year.
In 2021 she gave her voice to one of the heroes of "Star Wars: Visions" anime
