No Bad DaysMy dad was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in 2014, died in 2015 and we’ve just left 2016. This show takes you through the impossibly painful journey of saying goodbye while introducing you to his magical, eccentric spirit that never left. We will cry. But my dad once sent me to school with fake poop to “spice things up in algebra” so we will take breaks from crying as well. The solo show’s foundation is stand up material that I have worked on since my dad was first diagnosed. Not surprisingly, through the longest, loneliest, darkest stretch of my life, I wrote the jokes I most enjoy telling. Laughter became a necessary part of our bleak journey and this show highlights the light in those unbearable moments. Alyssa LimperisStudio C10/14
