Alicia started dreaming of being a comedian at the age of 8. She did her first set at the tender age of 18. She graduated from Hampshire College with a degree in standup comedy and filmmaking.
Mentored by several talented comedians over the years, W. Kamau Bell (HBO, FX), Eugene Mirman (Flight of the Conchords), and Bill Santiago (Huffington Post, CNN, Comedy Central), she’s been knocking audiences out (not literally) at clubs like The Improv and Gotham Comedy Club, in San Francisco, New York, Hollywood, Bombay, Chennai, and London. She’s performed with Maria Bamford, Ali Wong, Moshe Kasher, Arj Barker, Brent Weinbach, Kevin Kataoka, Kate Willett, and many more luminaries.
After a dozen years of doing standup, she’s been racking up awards for her humorous, insightful one-woman shows. The SF Guardian called her “Goofy, messy, and fun!” The LA Theater Review says she’s “Charming, likable, and funny!” Sold-out hit shows and extended runs have garnered her a number of awards.
Her solo shows include, The Oy of Sex, Eat, Pray, Laugh!, The Punchline, and The Latest Show on Earth Circus. She’s also creator of The Spiritual Comedy Festival. Alicia wrote a humorous number-one best-selling book on Amazon, Getting Shit Done. Her current show, The Oy of Sex premiers in New York at The Bridge Theater at Shetler Studios March 30, 2016. And her next show, a new hour of standup comedy, is now in development.
Alicia has appeared on NPR, The Wall Street Journal, San Francisco Examiner, San Francisco Chronicle, East Bay Express, The Lady Brain Show, J Magazine, BeliefNET, Elephant Journal, Elevate, Inspyr, Integral Yoga Magazine, The Mindful Word, Awaken.com, Taoish.com, and more.
