Comedian Laura Levites premieres one woman show How Did I Get Here? at the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2011
Laura wants to have a normal relationship, even if it’s with her psychiatrist. Her relationships are no walk through a park. They're more like a walk through Central Park at three in the morning. In How Did I Get Here?, Levites' one-woman show, she goes through a list of influential (good and bad, mostly bad) men in her life. The men that have lead her to say "How did I get here?" usually, but not always, at the end or near the end of the relationship's shelf life.
Burning houses, multiple emergency room visits, overdoses, nice boys turned online fetish-chasers, pregnancy tests, drug dealers, cults, hip chefs and of course, the only male who's never turned against Levites, her dog Pagan are a few to name on the long list of who's who on the tour de force that is Levites' love life.
Laura Levites is a professional stand-up comedian from New York City. She has toured with Lisa Lampanelli, was featured in Comedy Central's Meet the Creeps and goes up, nightly, in Los Angeles.
She is not for sensitive types. Her brutal honesty will weed most people off like medical schools do when they test on the hardest material to see what students actually want to be a doctor instead of just fancying the idea of it. The deal with Levites is that the idea of her is incredible and story-like. Tough, sweet, whatever. But the reality of her separates the boys from the men.
Levites isn't even close to her half-life and, yet, either her imagination went and ran wild about a decade ago or this is all true. Only medical records and confidentiality agreements buried somewhere deep off Second Avenue will tell. But one thing is for sure. This show will shake you to your core and make you wish you hadn't complained that traffic was bad on the way over. Project yourself for five minutes in any of Levites' relationships and you'll go home to your significant other begging to watch The Bachelor or eat his or her terrible cooking, because it is worth it.
“Laura Levites is a breath of fresh air in a city that has none. In a bar with ten model-actresses in a row, Levites clears the room with one lift of an eyebrow. This show is a cosmic joke without a warning and she's the last one laughing.”-- Carlos Herrera, co-host of The Mostly Normal Show at The Hollywood Improv
