Ophira Eisenberg Debuts Solo Show At Soho Playhouse This February

NY standup comic, storyteller, and podcast host Ophira Eisenberg (NPR, The Moth, The Late Late Show) debuts her solo show "Leaving A Mark: A Comedy About Scars" at the Soho Playhouse this February.

Winner of Women in the Arts & Media Award for Solo Show Scripts, "Leaving A Mark: A Comedy About Scars" blends all the rawness, vulnerability, and immediacy of first-person storytelling along with sharp standup as Ophira tells harrowing and hilarious stories about acquiring and living with the dozens of scars that cover her body.

This dynamic show changes each night with audience interaction (via a scar competition) and a notable special guest who shares their scar story in a segment called Scar Talk. Definitions of beauty, body acceptance, and the journey between broken and whole, injured and healed, are explored. The show also addresses that while nobody wants a scar, it's hard to imagine life without it once you do.
