Alexia arrives on stage with one simple question, “For the love of God – can someone please tell us how to parent?” Alexia’s comedy looks at the state of humanity through the lens of procreation and the skill set of our collective parenting – or the lack thereof. As an intellect and modern mother of three twenty-something millennials, Alexia is here to laugh- or cry - at her mistakes and those of her parents while sharing the impossible, humbling journey of quite literally building human beings. She warns today’s would-be parents about the urgency of preparing their “inner game”:


      “There’s no app for parenting – you’re going to have to get your human on…well, there

              might be an app. I don’t know. BevMo, maybe. BevMo may help you…in your parenting.”


Dumbfounded by the fact that there is no sage advice as to the challenges of rearing children, nor are there organized parenting classes in which to learn about the stages of human development, Alexia has taken this on as her personal calling, evident in her response to the vacuous emotional comments posted by new parents on social media, as she puts hand to heart, “There’s always a picture of a baby in a little blanket. Caption reads, “‘No words’– hah, ok – I’ve got a few words for ya.”  Determined to save the next wave of humanity by exposing the unspoken truths inherent in parenting – she urges parents, especially mothers, to finally, “COME OUT – what the hell… everyone else has!” and tell the truth about parenting. As for young couples who are blithely thinking about having kids, she gently suggests, “…think about something else…” 


Above all, she wants those who take on this most daunting and undervalued world role – that of Parent - to feel validated in their efforts. While her work centers around mothers and balancing the playing field, her audiences are diverse and filled with anyone who can relate to raising a kid or being a kid. In her words, “There’s a lot at stake in parenting - from generation to generation - in a word, evolution.”
