Irreverent insight into the human condition is Alicia's comedy specialty. Her outrageous stories and characters are packed with punchlines, and intersect themes of love, politics, American culture, travel, and enlightenment (whatever that actually is).
Alicia has been performing standup for over ten years, sharing the stage with many funny, talented comics including Bill Santiago, Eugene Mirman, Arj Barker, Brent Weinbach, W. Kamau Bell, Vanda Mikoloski, Amy Stiller. Her first solo show, The Punchline won "Best of the Fringe" and "Best Female Solo Show" in the San Francisco Fringe Festival 2008. Her second solo show, Eat, Pray, Laugh! has played to sold out audiences in San Francisco, London, and Bombay.
She has performed at Cobb's Comedy Club and The Punch Line The Improv in San Francisco as well as the Knitting Factory in Hollywood, Gotham Comedy Club, and Ha Comedy Club in New York. Click here to see a full list of venues where she's performed.
A few of Alicia's Utterings...
"You have to keep growing. If you don't, when you reach adulthood, you become an exact combination of your mother and your father. If you do work on yourself... people can't tell.
But you can't try too hard--in high school, my friend Abby said, "Alicia, for just five minutes, can you stop 'working on yourself'? I said, 'yes, I'm working on it."
"I am so tired. You ever think, 'I just wasted the entire day on the computer... I gotta go watch some TV."
"My dad's family is Jewish, and my mom's family is athiest. So... I want to marry a doctor who is good enough for me... but I don't believe he exists."
"I listen to NPR all day. Their pledge drive is on again... 'If you're listening, you should be donating!' I finally realized it's time to do the adult thing. Stop listening."
"I've been trying this raw food diet for a couple of weeks now... well it turns out you're not supposed to eat cookie dough."
