Dating in L.A. with No Nipples

Dating in L.A. with No Nipples chronicles the most challenging time of my life. It was the year I discovered my husband was a pedophile and sleeping with hookers; the year I got cancer and a double-mastectomy; the year I went undercover with the LAPD to help convict my ex; and the year I went on seventy first dates—without nipples—to find love again, to find a new father for my daughter, and to find myself.

“Lisa David is a superstar…She has that precious gift of self-effacing joy and stories so crazy they must be true. If you need some uplifting. If you seek light and love and connection then see this show…I absolutely loved it!!”

The Monster Under My Bed Drank My Vodka

The Monster Under My Bed Drank My Vodka is a coming of age dramady chronicling my struggles with OCD, bulimia and alcoholism, culminating with getting sober at the ripe age of 21.

"Rarely does onstage soul-baring feel so fecund or go so deep. We are disarmed by her mimicry: Like a Whoopi Goldberg or Jefferson Mays, David sketches out figures using a minimum of strokes, making her performance as spare as it is emotionally lush." -Backstage

Reviews

“Lisa David is beautiful inside and out and her masterful storytelling, magical timing and deeply moving presence onstage is utterly magnificent…Proves that there is hope in even the most hopeless place…

Lisa takes those couple years full of heartache and terror and danger and turns them into a story of strength and humor and love. Her spirit is effortlessly endearing. She is everyone’s idea of the perfect best friend, mother, daughter and hero. Lisa is brilliant in an understated way. Her genius is found in between the drama. In her infallible love for her daughter, in her determination to be happy, in her unwavering resolve to put her revolting ex-husband behind bars and as far out of her daughter’s life as possible.

Lisa David is so likable and her autobiographical show is so ingenious and inspiring.

– Stage Raw Magazine

Lisa David is a sharp writer who’s adept at both acting and stand-up comedy…. a brave and highly engaging storyteller … a major comedic force.

– The New York Times

Writer/performer Lisa David surely has endured enough traumas for one so young. Bulimia and alcoholism are just two of the diseases she has faced, fought off, and found funny enough to dramatize in such a richly cathartic way. “Monster” is clearly tailored to David’s standup skills: She rarely fails to land punch lines squarely, and there are easily enough of them to fill an evening. Rarely does onstage soul-baring feel so fecund or go so deep. We are disarmed by her mimicry: Like a Whoopi Goldberg or Jefferson Mays, David sketches out figures using a minimum of strokes, making her performance as spare as it is emotionally lush.
