comedy_awardscomedy_venuesAlicia did her first standup set at 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, Kate Willett, and many more luminaries.

“Alicia is hilarious and fabulous. She has a beautiful heart and soul.”
Marci Shimoff, Author of Happy for No Reason

“I laughed till I cried. Brilliant writing and performing. She belongs on Letterman. Come see her so you can say you saw her before she was famous!”
Marsha Stevens

“Unbelievably genius. Very helpful for me in many ways, especially spiritually. I was amazed at every single line – her timing, acting, nuanced humor, profound points, the FACES she made! Easily as good as Eddie Izzard.”

“Animated and graceful. By the end of 90 minutes of ‘Eat, Pray, Laugh!’ the house is full of laughter.” -Theatrius

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 shows include One Life Stand, 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 parody of David Allen’s book Getting Things Done that became an international number-one best-selling book on Amazon. Check out Getting Shit Done here. Her last show, The Oy of Sex premiered Off-Broadway in New York at The Bridge Theater recently and was listed three weeks running in The New York Times Comedy Section. Her newest show, a new hour of standup comedy called One Life Stand, is now touring.

She leads storytelling workshops around the world. Check out Solo Showdown Solo Performance & Comedy Workshops here.
