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
Reviews & Ratings
Elect To Laugh with Will Durst and Friends! is a hysterical hybrid chasing down the presidential election cycle like white on rice with material as up to date as the latest tweet from DC. It will blend monologues and commentary and perhaps the occasional rant. The show’s intent is to blur the traditional boundaries between stand- up comedy and theater. Through innovation, experimentation and a ravenous appetite for accessing the topical via the jugular, Durst and Company are out to prove that jokes are not the enemy.
Descendants of Mark Twain, George Carlin and Spalding Gray, Durst and his rotating cast will every Tuesday twist the rhythm of stand-up with poetry, punditry and puzzles o’plenty planting the production solidly in the strictures and structures of a deconstructed one man show. Or solo performance piece. Whatever. With a single aim: to mock and scoff and taunt, but with taste. Consider it political comedy for people who don’t like politics.
The show runs approximately 90 minutes, and is recommended for ages 18 and up.
