More about Alicia Dattner:
Like most of us, Alicia learned early to find the humor in the dysfunction she saw all about her. She has turned that learning into a fantastic career that has seen her perform with Maria Bamford, Ali Wong, Moshe Kasher, Arj Barker, Kate Willett, Ann Randolph, and many more luminaries. Alicia has been mentored by talented comedians over the years, including W. Kamau Bell (HBO, FX), Eugene Mirman (Flight of the Conchords), and Bill Santiago (Huffington Post, CNN, Comedy Central). And, she’s been knocking the tube socks off audiences at clubs like The Improv and Gotham Comedy Club, playing in San Francisco, New York, London, Hollywood, Honolulu, Bali, and Bombay.
