Event description

Description

Through 18 characters and multi-media effects, Kate Huffman guides us through two decades of living with an OCD-instilled eating disorder that requires her to live by a strict set of rules and rituals based around numbers and eternal body hatred.

Charm, wit, and giddy self-deprecation entice us through the journey of a very young girl who stumbles upon a life-long, nihilistic frenemy.

I’M TOO FAT FOR THIS SHOW presents an opportunity for all people with obsessions, neuroticism, or negative self-talk to laugh at themselves.

Directed by Scout Durwood (Mary + Jane)

I'm Too Fat for This Show

REVIEWS

"One of the rare solo performance shows that deftly balances humor, gravitas, pathos, education, and energy into a soul-baring beautiful performance." - Nerds of Color

"Ruthlessly honest; Huffman exposes literally her innermost core with biting and intelligent humour." - Gia on the Move

"One of the most commanding one-person shows around today." - Jewish Journal

"By far the most entertaining one person show I have ever seen anywhere anytime." - Santa Monica Observed

"Perfect balance of truth, wit, and humor…poignant." - LA Post-Examiner

AUDIENCE REACTIONS

"Funny, heartbreaking, and so very relatable in surprising ways.”

“So well-paced, such a perfect mixture of comedy and tragedy. I thought I knew about eating disorders, but I learned a lot.”

“Amazing and powerful! Heroic is for sure a word that fits.”

“It makes me feel less alone in the constant journey to want to be happy and feel good in my own skin.”

"This is how ideas should be shared."

"Funny, smart, informative, honest, non-judgmental, and real!"

"...doesn't feel like a one-woman show; it feels like an ensemble. She performs several characters with such contrast and energy that I almost remember the scenes as having several actors."

"...the kind of STAR QUALITY you find in SNL performers who are just having fun up there...INFECTIOUS."

"...incredibly moving and inspiring to watch...Her character work is phenomenal...Inspiring, humorous & thought-provoking.....RUN, don't walk to SEE THIS."
