More About the Author

Alicia is the creator and host of The Spiritual Comedy Festival, and online event bringing together comedians with a sense of humor and spiritual teachers with a sense of humor, sharing what's funny and beautiful about being human.

Ms. Dattner started dreaming of being a comedian at the age of eight-and "wasted" ten years "growing up" before she finally started performing at age 18. She graduated from Hampshire College with a degree in standup comedy-yes, comedy.
Mentored by several talented comedians over the years, Eugene Mirman (Flight of the Conchords), W. Kamau Bell (HBO, FX), and Bill Santiago (Comedy Central), she's been knocking audiences out (not literally) at clubs like The Improv and Gotham Comedy Club, in San Francisco, New York, Hollywood, Bombay, Chennai, and London.

After a dozen years of doing standup comedy, she's been racking up awards for her humorous, insightful one-woman shows. Sold-out hit shows and extended runs have garnered her shows "Best Storyteller" -Off-Broadway NY Solo Festival, "Best of the Fringe" "Best Female Solo Show", -SF Fringe Festival, "Best Comedian" -East Bay Express and more. The SF Guardian called her "Goofy, messy, and fun!" The LA Theater Review says she's "Charming, likable, and funny!"

"I laughed till I cried. Brilliant writing and performing. She belongs on Letterman. Come see her so you can say you saw her before she was famous!" -Marsha Stevens

"Unbelievably genius. Very helpful for me in many ways, especially spiritually. I was amazed at every single line - her timing, acting, nuanced humor, profound points, the FACES she made! Easily as good as Eddie Izzard." -Katie Darling

Alicia studied with Rob Reece of the Actor's Studio for four years in his Diamond Heart Approach Method Acting Workshop. She is a graduate of The Arete Experience, The Spirit of Life Institute, the Authentic Woman Experience, Insight Seminars, Vipassana Mediation, and Sivananda Ashram courses. She trained to be a life coach and workshop leader in the year-long immersive Transformational Course Leader Training (TCLT) with Guy Sengstock. Alicia has also been schooled in Family Constellations work with a student of Constellations founder Bert Hellinger, in metaphysical guided meditation, Laughter Yoga, Access Consciousness Bars, Emotional Freedom Technique, and the Sedona Method, and incorporates all of this wisdom into her one-on-one spiritually guided coaching process and workshops.

Alicia's uses of words through titles and acronyms cracked me up. Having been a professional organizer and productivity coach myself, I found that she distills the essence of what needs to happen to GSD. I was reading for the humor and cleverness and then realized, this is useful advice!

Getting S*** Done is a delightful parody of the GTD system, and a much needed reminder of what's really important in life.

Laugh-out-loud humor about the futility of time management...a joke in itself. Alicia Dattner is a gifted writer and comedienne. I look forward to reading more of it - and seeing the book in print or performed on DVD. The illustrations are great! Fantastic concept all around. Perfect book for those who are tired of doer-ship and know it's a useless battle against the to-do list, so why bother? I look forward to doing nothing, faster, with the help of this most excellent guide.

Doing my part to improve the economy so we can start more wars. After all, who but the smart people in our society are going to have enough sense to keep our intellectual property flowing to the masses? Alicia is pithy, witty, smart and funny. Read it for a laugh, read it for the sake of our GNP, read it because you are able to read. Those who choose not to read great works of inspiration, have no advantage over those who cannot read great works of inspiration. I feel so productive!

Pearls of wisdom are so 2011. Alicia's gems are priceless, and reading her book Getting S**t Done: The Art of Feeling Good about Doing Nothing is like sneaking a helpful and heavenly red velvet cupcake in the dead of night -- so fun it feels like a guilty pleasure, but it's calorie free -- so ready, fire, aim and get your copy today! Getting S**t Done provides fresh perspective, coupled with an extra serving of hilarious humor. So nutritious you can skip a meal!
