THE OY OF SEX Extends Through 2/22 at The Marsh
The Marsh announces that Alicia Dattner's hilarious solo show THE OY OF SEX will extend its run at The Marsh San Francisco, playing Saturdays through February 22, 2014. Using true stories from her life, Dattner outlines a recipe for disaster: take one virgin, two boyfriends, several dozen lovers, half a dysfunctional family, and one comedian. Bake 15 years, and sprinkle a pinch of polyamory. Serve hot, and voila! The result is this sizzling show about love addiction, created with help from contributing directors David Ford, Katie Rubin, and Jonathan Bender. THE OY OF SEX, a heart-wrenching, sobering, laugh-out-loud story of sex, drugs...and more sex, continues at The Marsh San Francisco now through January 18 (Thursday/Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 8:30pm) and January 25 through February 22, with shows on Saturdays at 5pm in the Upstairs Studio Theatre. For tickets ($20 - $100), the public may visit www.themarsh.org or call 415-282-3055 between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
Winner of "Best Comedian 2013" from the SF Weekly Readers' Poll, Alicia Dattner has been performing across the world from San Francisco to New York, Hollywood to Bombay and London. After a dozen years of performing standup comedy, Dattner turned to solo performance, racking up awards for her humorous, insightful one-woman shows, including the enormously popular Eat, Pray, Laugh! and The Oy of Sex. Sold-out hit performances and extended runs have garnered her titles including "Best Storyteller" of the Off-Broadway NY Solo Festival, "Best of the Fringe" and "Best Female Solo Show" at the San Francisco Fringe Festival, "Best Comedian" by the East Bay Express, and more. The San Francisco Bay Guardian called her "Goofy, messy, and fun" and the LA Theater Review says she's "Charming, likable, and funny." Dattner helps very serious spiritual seekers to...lighten up. To that end, this year she created the first ever Online Spiritual Comedy Festival featuring Wavy Gravy, Wes "Scoop" Nisker, and many other luminaries. Alicia delights in coaching people creating solo performance, standup comedy, healing through humor, and all things "ha!"
