June 3 – Alicia Tobin
“Alicia Tobin is extremely funny. She has a sharp, sensitive comic sensibility that makes you want more”- Rob Delaney, Famous Person
Comedian and writer Alicia Tobin started performing stand up in 2007. She has her own show called Alicia Tobin’s Come Draw with Me, a hilarious podcast about working in retail, and is a published author. She’s fun to talk to at parties, but can’t eat gluten so tends to hover around the cheese plate protectively until she’s finished all the cheese she likes, then does a bunch of dishes and leaves without saying goodbye. She wakes up most days agape at the beauty of the natural world and has more than once missed her bus to work because of a particularly beautiful squirrel.
