With a background in stand-up comedy and the award-winning solo show Eat, Pray, Laugh under her belt, Alicia Dattner's new one-woman show The Oy of Sex is a good bet if you're looking for laughter. Dattner recounts stories of unrequited love, interminable virginity, a list of loony lovers, and a dysfunctional family for an uproarious tale of sex, drugs ... and more sex. Dattner has performed with Arj Barker, Maria Bamford, Bill Santiago, and Moshe Kasher at comedy clubs in New York, L.A. and London. She was recently named "Best Comedian" by SF Weekly. Learn More

This was a superb solo act, with an interesting and engrossing story, very good acting and well done character-switching.
I stayed interested the entire time, and the moral of the story was weaved in with the comedy, so it never felt preachy.
At the end, nearly the entire audience (the theatre was packed) gave Pidge a well-deserved standing ovation.
The act that precedes this performance ("Memphis on my Mind") was also quite good, especially the character-switching along with the corresponding southern accent-switching.
Pidge Meade's 40 Pounds in 12 Weeks: A Love Story is part of The Marsh's Festival of New Voices 2010.
Meade has appeared from coast to coast in everything from Shakespeare to Sondheim to really bad murder mystery dinner theatre. Favorite Bay Area roles include Sarah Brown in Guys and Dolls and the title role in Mrs. Bob Cratchit's Wild Christmas Binge.
