I saw Alicia Dattner (http://aliciadattner.com/) perform at the Science and Nonduality Conference last fall and she rocked the stage in front of an international audience of over 800 people. Her comedy is deep, psychological, often dark, and ridiculously funny. She has a powerful new voice and it’s always evolving.
Alicia did her first standup set at 18 and she graduated from Hampshire College with a degree in standup and filmmaking.
She’s been mentored by several talented comedians over the years, including W. Kamau Bell, Eugene Mirman, and Bill Santiago. She’s also been playing clubs like The Improv and Gotham Comedy Club, performing in San Francisco, New York, London, Hollywood, Honolulu, Bali, and Bombay. Alicia was voted Best Comedian in both the SF Weekly and SF Bay Guardian, and she’s won a bunch of other awards. Some of the people with whom she’s performed have included luminaries like Maria Bamford, Ali Wong, Moshe Kasher, Arj Barker, Kate Willett, and many others.
She’s about to release her sixth comedy show, entitled “Are You Dressed for the Apocalypse?"
