I am excited to announce my new project for 2015.  April 1st and 3rd I will be premiering my very first one person show titled Going Beyond Inspirational.  Here is an initial summary:

“How many people with Disabilities does it take to screw in a lightbulb?” Answer: “One to screw it in and 5 abled bodied people to say, ‘you are such an inspiration!'”

This joke is a favorite in Nina G’s stand up routine. It brings to light (no pun intended) the struggle people with Disabilities have in an abled bodied society that reduces them to images of “inspirations” and “overcomers.” As America’s only female stand up comedian who stutters, Nina has been challenging attitudes about Disability since she took the stage for the first time in 2010. Nina challenges perceptions about Disability in her new show, Beyond Inspirational, to premiere in her hometown of Alameda on April 1 and 3, 2015. Beyond Inspirational deals with the pain, joys, and revelations growing up with Speech and Learning Disabilities. Join the Pacific Pinball Museum for the premiere of this unique one person show! Portion of the proceeds go to the museum.
