Breast Cancer Comedy NICE T!TS Pairs Up with Avon 39 for Benefit Performance

Writer and performer Amy Marcs pairs up with Avon 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer for a special benefit performance of her critically acclaimed one-woman comedy, "Nice T!ts" at The PIT (123 E 24 Street, NYC) on Thursday, August 10 at 8:00p.m. A percentage of ticket sales will be donated to Avon 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer. The performance will be followed by an exclusive after show talk-back, featuring a representative from Avon, esteemed breast cancer plastic surgeon Doctor Nolan Karp, and Breast Oncology surgeon Doctor Karen Hiotis (both of NYU Langone Cancer Center). The panel will be hosted by Sandy Ames (aka Jamie Lee) from 106.7 Lite FM Radio.

Says Marcs, "One of the goals of 'Nice T!ts' is to get the topic of breast cancer (and its aftermath) out of the closet, in order to inspire an honest conversation about what it means to lose your breasts to cancer, how that impacts you, your partner, your sexuality, your identity, and even your family. We are thrilled to be working with Avon and to be able to offer proceeds of ticket sales to their worthy causes."

"Nice T!ts" is a comedic exploration of Marcs' roller coaster experience with cancer and its effect on her perceptions of femininity, womanhood, confidence and mortality. It's a unique perspective full of humor and heart-felt honesty.
