The Chicago Reader

"Writer-performer Gina DeLuca is cognitive dissonance made flesh. Her onstage persona is disarming and understated, more restaurant hostess than aggressive comedian. But her material, which she both reads and performs in this brilliant solo show, is savage and smart and relentlessly honest. No one escapes her incisive wit. Family, friends, old boyfriends, customers at work—all provide her with comedy fodder, though she performs her cruelest and most killing deconstructions on herself. One of her funniest stories recounts an overseas trip that goes awry when she develops a case of vaginitis so extreme she believes she must be sprouting a penis." —Jack Helbig
